Rhonda Sue Baker Rose went to be with the Lord on May 20, 2023, after a heroic battle with cancer. She was born on April 1, 1955, to Robert E. and Patricia A. (Logsdon) Baker. She graduated from Fairfield High School in 1973 and Miami University in 1977. Rhonda was a teacher at Cincinnati Christian Schools before staying home to raise the joys of her life, her three children Lindsey (Mike) Himmler, Justin Rose and Zachary (Emily) Rose. Later, she continued to work with children and young people and was a smiling face at Princeton City Schools and Miami University.
Rhonda had a deep Christian faith, volunteering in children’s and women’s ministries and serving God with music. She was known for her beautiful alto voice, singing in church and traveling with choirs. She was never far from a Wendy’s iced tea or a good book. There was no one better to sit with and talk over a problem, and her kindness and sense of humor will be deeply missed.
Rhonda was preceded in death by her father. She leaves behind her mother, children, beloved grandchildren Westley, Evelyn, Ilse and Milo Himmler, sister Lisa (Kevin) Bowman, and many other wonderful friends and family.
