Rose Mary “Rosie” Rhodes, age 81, passed away on July 25, 2019 at Ochsner Medical Center surrounded by her loving family. Rose left this world behind to be united with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was a native of Bourg and a longtime resident of Houma, LA.
Rosie is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Donald Rhodes, Sr.; children, Stephanie Kramer and husband Bobby, Donald Rhodes, Jr. and wife Karen, Randall Rhodes and wife Jenny, Brent Rhodes and wife Heidi, and Julie Rhodes; 9 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren, 2 great great-grandchildren; she is also survived by multiple step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren that she treated as her own; brother, Andrew “Pete” Boquet.
Rosie was a loving wife to Don. Together they created a beautiful family. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great and great great-grandmother. Her beauty radiated throughout her life and reflected on her family. She loved her family dearly and will now look down on them for protection. She was the sweetest, most compassionate, thoughtful, funny, selfless mother to her children. Anyone who encountered Rosie was blessed with her presence. She was truly beautiful inside and out. She was also a good listener, cook, enjoyed music, going to the casino, playing cards with her friends; and she could not be beaten in scrabble. Rosie was a Christian woman who loved and served her Lord, devout Catholic and prayer warrior. The world lost an angel on earth and God gained one of the most precious angels he ever created.
