Rhonda Beth Phelps

January 29, 1954 — January 21, 2021

Rhonda Beth Phelps, R.N., age 66, was called home by our Heavenly Father on January 21, 2021 following a courageous battle with leukemia and breast cancer. She passed away peacefully surrounded by her beloved daughters. Rhonda was born January 29, 1954 in Beckley, W. Va. She is a graduate of Maryville High School, where she was a majorette. She graduated from East Tennessee Baptist Hospital School of Nursing. She had a long career as a registered nurse and throughout her life, she was a loving caregiver – to her family, her friends and her patients. She was a devout Christian, a devoted mother, a loving Nana, a doting wife, and an amazing friend. She treasured and embraced every single moment. She loved fiercely and she was fiercely loved.
Rhonda is preceded in death by her grandmother Idell Rothlisberger and aunt Jacqueline Paddock, both of whom she cherished and loved dearly. She will be deeply missed by her mother Eloise Sparks; her loving husband Hal Phelps; her four daughters Heather Rucker, Christie Wilson, Lindsey Piercy (Allen), and Sara Gallardo (Francisco); her seven grandchildren Keirsten, Ricky, Olivia, Zachary, Hannah, Molly, and Gus; her two great-grandchildren Chastin and Karsyn; and her beloved King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, Charlee. She will be remembered for her smile that lit up every room and for her loving spirit that warmed the hearts of all who knew her.
Rhonda’s family wants you to join them in celebrating her life at a later date. Those details will be published when they are available. In lieu of flowers, you can honor Rhonda with a memorial contribution to the American Cancer Society.
