Later she went on to attain a Masters of Education from the University of Texas at Tyler. Teaching was her passion, in and out of the classroom, and the only thing she loved more than teaching, were her students. She taught in the Austin and Houston school districts and later for the West Rusk school district as a Special Education teacher until her retirement in 1994. She was also involved with the Rusk County Poetry Society, and was a past president of the Athletic Booster Club. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her grandparents, Archie and Eva Maddox. Survivors include: son, Samuel Rhoades and wife Lora of Sugar Land; grandsons, Haden and Grayson Rhoades of Bellaire; granddaughters, Nicole Rodesney of Long Beach, CA, and Amber Vasquez of Sugar Land; niece, Janice Eidel of Sun Valley, ID; and special lifelong friends, Dr. Michael Dennis, Orenthal Johnson, and Lonnie and Linda Hammett. The family would like to express a special debt of gratitude is to her extended family at the Hamptons at Meadows Place in Stafford, TX., where she resided for the last 9 years. The love and care she received from them was an unbelievable blessing. Condolences may be made online at www.crawfordacrim.com.
