Mary C. Rhodes

Mary C. Rhodes, age 88, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, December 19, 2023, in Brandon, MS. She was born on April 29, 1935, in Rayville, LA to the late Chester and Etta Carter.

Known for her warm smile and kind heart, Mary touched the lives of everyone she encountered. Her presence was like a ray of sunshine in the darkest of days. She brought joy and laughter wherever she went and made lasting connections with people from all walks of life.

Mary had a passion for arts and crafts that fueled her creative spirit. She dedicated countless hours to making ceramics and earrings with meticulous attention to detail. Her talent shone through every piece she created. 

Mary leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories. Her husband of 64 years, J.W. Rhodes, stood beside her through thick and thin, providing unwavering support and boundless love. Their love story was one for the ages - a true testament to commitment and devotion.

In addition to her loving husband, Mary is survived by her niece Mona (Greg) Ryan; sister Charlotte (B.J.) McKnight; sisters-in-law Francis Cook and Jean Milner; and a vast host of other loving relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her her parents; sisters-in-law Theo McClemore and Pat Brandau.
