RHONDA CAROL FLEMING entered this earth on April 10, 1950 to Buster and Ruth (Williams) Fleming. Rhonda was the 2nd of 4 children and was born, raised and lived in Chicago, Illinois until December 2002, where she then relocated to Altoona, Iowa to be closer to her children and grandchildren.

Rhonda attended Perkins Bass Elementary, Joliet Lowe Secondary School and Englewood High School where she graduated in 1968. She worked for USPS for a short time in the 70's and had various jobs during her lifetime. But her one passion was childcare. In her 30's, she attended Kennedy King College, where she studied Early Childhood Development and became a childcare provider for her family, friends and strangers until 2010 when her health began to fail and prevented her from taking care of her babies. Rhonda attended church throughout her lifetime, but her home church was at The Anointed Healing Center, in Chicago under the leadership of Pastor Catherine Taylor from 1994 until she relocated to Altoona, Iowa.

Rhonda never married but had a long-term relationship with James Sanders whom preceded her in death. To that union, no children were born, but she has 2 children from previous relationships. A son, Marc A. Fleming (Eddie Guyton) and Hynissah Fleming (Louis Turner).

Rhonda was a fun, loving person that would do anything she could to help others, especially when it came to the children. She loved to cook, dance and play her gospel music LOUD for the LORD.

Surrounded by her two children, family members and friends, Rhonda transitioned from her earthly home to her eternal home to be with her LORD and Savior Jesus Christ on October 26, 2019 at 4:42pm at the young age of 69.
