Rhonda Evans

Jan 11th, 1952 - Apr 29th, 2023

Private graveside services were held at 4 p.m. on Monday, May 1, 2023, at Powers Cemetery, Xenia.  


     Rhonda Sue Evans, age 71, of Flora, Illinois, passed away in her home surrounded by her loved ones on April 29, 2023. 

     She was born on January 11, 1952, in Xenia, to Robert and Modena Green.  Rhonda was united in marriage to James R. Evans on January 18, 1969, in Flora, and together they shared 54 years of love and memories.

     Rhonda was a dedicated employee of Hella Electronics for thirty-seven years.  She retired in 2017.  Rhonda was a very caring and kind person to everyone she encountered.  She had a very special gift for decorating her home and creating a safe space for her family.  Rhonda was the heart of her family.  She was the safe place for anyone that was lucky to have received a spot in her heart.  She approached life with integrity and the desire to do her very best.   In her free time, she enjoyed gardening and being creative, in particular sewing and embroidery, spending time with her family, and spoiling her two rescue cats, Pepper and Lewis. 

     She is survived by her loving husband, James Evans of Flora; her daughter, Carrie Ann Evans of Champaign; 2 grandchildren; 5 brothers; 2 sisters; and several nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents; 2 brothers; 2 sisters; 2 nephews; and her beloved dog, Cookie.

     Private graveside services were held at 4 p.m. on Monday, May 1, 2023, at Powers Cemetery, Xenia.   Arrangements are by Frank & Bright Funeral Home in Flora.  Memorial donations are suggested to Clay County Hospice, Clay County Cancer Crusaders, Fur a Good Paws or Clay County Animal Rescue & Shelter and will be accepted through the funeral home.
