Rhonda Lynn Denmark
Rhonda Lynn Denmark, 54, of Fernandina Beach went home to be with the Lord Saturday, February 02, 2019 from the Warner Center for Caring after a lengthy illness.
Born in Jacksonville, she was the daughter of Ernest and Janice Barnhill Denmark. She and her family moved to Callahan while she was young and she grew up there.
She was a member of the West Nassau County High School Class of 1982 where she was a standout in softball. She played 2nd base and during her time on the team the Warriors went to the State Play Offs. She went on to play softball at FCCJ as she worked on her Associates Degree. After college she continued playing co-ed softball for many years.
She began a 32 year career working for the U. S. Post Office at the Kings Road Branch in Jacksonville. Rhonda eventually moved to the Callahan Post Office where she spent 12 years before transferring to the Sadler Road Post Office in Fernandina Beach. She worked there for several years before her retirement.
In addition to her career and softball Rhonda loved anything to do with the beach and the water. Whether it was in her boat, tubing or just spending the day at the beach, she loved being on or near the water. It was her love of the beach and the ocean which brought her to Fernandina Beach.
In addition to the enjoyment she had on the water she always enjoyed having a good time with family and friends. She loved nothing more than an evening together with family and friends singing Karaoke at home. She also loved playing ping pong and enjoyed her camera and the simple pleasure of taking pictures of the world around her. Rhonda�s ability to capture the perfect pictures was uncanny.
She will be remembered for her easy going and laid back style as well as her loving and compassionate personality. Even at work, people commented on how infectious her smile was. She was strong and courageous and never wanted to burden anyone even through her illness.
Her loving personality was most evident with her daughter, Courtney and her wife, Lisa. The both of them were her whole heart.
She leaves behind her wife of 10 years, Lisa Seager of Fernandina Beach; her daughter, Courtney Gose of Jacksonville; her parents Ernie and Janice Denmark of Callahan as well as numerous Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and other extended family and a large circle of friends.
Funeral Services will be held Friday, February 8, 2019 at 1:00 PM in the Burgess Chapel of Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors with Chaplain Jim Tippins Officiating. The family will receive friends Thursday, February 7, 2019 from 5:00 until 7:00 PM.
She will be laid to rest in Bosque Bello Cemetery.
Those desiring may make donations in Rhonda�s memory to the Nassau Humane Society, 639 Airport Road, Fernandina Beach, Florida 32034 or any of the multiple organizations who assist in the fight against Breast Cancer.
