Rhodora was our neighbour on Old port Mounton Rd/Payzant St. for years.. My best memories are of her and Nettie walking to midnight service on Christmas eve with us.. we were going to St. Gregory’s and they to Trinity Anglican..sincere condolences to the family.
To all Rhodora family I am very sorry to hear about her passing I remember she use to go to Church every Sunday and she was a lovely lady RiP Rhodora you will always be in our hearts forever
Rhodora was a sweet lady. I don’t ever remember her that she was without a smile. She will be a happy lady now that she is reunited with Chester.
For years I’d see Rhodora walk by our shop, during her daily trip to and from the Post Office. Some days we’d wave, other days we’d chat but she always gave me a smile, happy that I took the time to acknowledge her. She was a well known person in town and I have missed not seeing her the last few years. My sincere condolences to her family, especially those who have lovingly cared for her during the last years when she needed you the most.

To Rhodora’s family…. so sorry to hear of her passing. We did visit with her in the Queens General, she could not get up etc., but she was still her ‘funny’ and wonderful self. Her & Rhoda West were best of friends. She was a “fun” loving person, son loved her, she always wanted to dance. RIP Rhodora …. You were a good person who loved everyone.

I’m sorry to about the passing of your Aunt. I was wondering
why I hadn’t seen her around for a while but when I did see
her , she always said hi and that little smile on her face. Dad
knew her quite well and when I couldn’t remember her name
all I had to do was go to Dad and he knew exactly who I was
talking about. One thing for sure, she lived a long and happy
life and she will be missed greatly by her family and everyone
who knew her.

Sorry to hear of Rhodora’s passing. I grew up across from her on Payzant St. She was a wonderful lady with a very large heart. She was a great help to my mom (Helen) when my dad (Hector) passed away. I will always remember her smile and especially her laugh. It was a pleasure to have known her. RIP Rhodora.
To Rhodora’s family
Please accept my deepest condolences on your loss. She was a great friend of my mom’s and always had a smile and time for a chat when I would drop off a treat to her from mom. A very faithful and dedicated member of her church and I know she is now safely at home with the Lord.
May God be with you all.

To Rhodora’s family:
So sorry to read of Rhodora’s passing. She was a fun loving person and she and Nettie were great friends of Maxine & Al Fralic of Main Street, where I would visit quite often. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.
I am so sorry to hear of Rhodora’s passing. As a child, I lived right across the road from her and Nettie. It was right there on the corner.
I would always knock on their door and ask permission to go into their yard to get my ball that had gone there by accident. I was taught to always ask before I go on someone else’s property. They were always so gracious. I remember the white berries growing on the bushes in front of their house.
Please accept my condolences on Rhodora’s passing.

Sorry to hear about Aunt Rhodora.
I am happy that I was able visit her these last few years whenever I was in Liverpool.
Love to Gail. You took great care of her. Thanks.
We grew up next to Rhodora and Mrs Boyd. From buying magazine subscriptions for school fundraisers, to sharing the gooseberries from their gooseberry bush, Rhodora was very kind and good to us as youngsters and always interested in how we were doing as we got older. She spent many hours sitting and talking with dad on the front doorstep. I will miss seeing her next door.

I have always loved being with Rhodora As a child in Liverpool my best memories were spent with her.. She will be greatly missed by me, I know that she is now at peace and the people that have gone on before will be waiting with open arms, Chester being at the front of the line. Daughter of the late Catherine Verge of Liverpool.
