Rhonda was born October 10, 1952 in Galveston, Texas.  She is a 1971 graduate of Santa Fe High School.  She was a life member of the American Legion Post 554 and VFW Post 6378 where she was an active Auxiliary member since she was eighteen years old.  Every year she could be seen participating and putting in countless hours in the BBQ cook-offs and most recently as a member of the B-N-C (B&B Cookers) team.  She was an employee of Bradshaw’s Florist in Texas City for the past fourteen years. She was that friendly voice heard or smiling face that greeted you when you placed your order.  She was a kind hearted woman who loved all around her and will be greatly missed.  She enjoyed family gatherings with good times and good food, you didn’t realize you were making memories with her, you just knew you were having fun. And our memories of her and karaoke nights will never be forgotten; she never did sing, but boy could she cut a rug….Harper Valley PTA will never be the same.To the Rhonda Gale Jackson Family and Friends,

            In the time of your loss, Carnes Funeral Home would like to extend our deepest condolences. It's our honor to serve your family...
