Rhonda Jean Posey Burr, 57, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday, February 21, 2014. A celebration of life service will be held Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. at St. Timothy’s Lutheran Church, Camden, S.C., with burial to follow in Forest Lawn Memorial Park. The Rev. Angela Jennings will officiate.
Born in New Jersey, she was a daughter of the late Ronald Eugene and Marion Cline Posey. Rhonda was a member of St. Timothy’s Lutheran Church where she was a member and past-president of Anna Circle, the Altar Guild, a Sunday school teacher, and was also active in the hand bells, Vacation Bible School and the Nursery. She worked with children at the Pupil Enrichment Program (PEP) at Wateree Elementary School, and previously worked at the Chronicle-Independent. Rhonda was a loving grandmother, whose goal in life was to care for her two precious grandchildren Collen and Caleb. Rhonda was a wonderful and loving wife, mother, and Nana.
Rhonda touched the lives of everyone around her daily. We were all blessed by knowing her and feeling her love. We have peace in knowing that we will see her again in heaven and that God is taking care of her now.
