Her legacy lives on in her adoring family. She is survived by her daughter, Jill Young, and son-in-law, Justin, of Thackerville, Oklahoma; her son, Justin Bearden, of Houston, Texas; her treasured grandchildren, Cohen, Harlow, and River Young; her loving mother, Barbara Smith, of Caddo, Oklahoma; and her sister, Jackie Bearden, of Caddo, Oklahoma. Her nephew, Kaleb King, and his wife, Opal, of Calera, also hold dear memories of Rhonda.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, her father, Harley Smith, and her sister, Tina King.

A celebration of her life will be held graveside in the pavilion at Restland Cemetery in Silo with Benny Arnott officiating the service at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 29, 2024.
