Rhonda Jean Beckman Creel

Rhonda Jean Beckman Creel

On August 15, 2017, our precious loved one, Rhonda Jean Beckman Creel, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was born May 7, 1954, to Charles and Bonnie Beckman of Quitman, MS.

Survivors include her son, Trey Creel; grandsons, Gage Creel and Ayden Creel; sisters, Charlotte Coats (Rev. Dennis), and Kathy Hunter; brother, Mark Beckman (Heather), and numerous nieces, nephews and friends whom she loved dearly.


She is preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Bonnie Beckman; and brother, Ricky Beckman.


We know that when she arrived in heaven, she was greeted with, “Come on in my child. You have fought a good fight and you have kept thee.” Now she is at total peace and is well again.

She fought this terrible condition of cancer for 27 long years but she always fought it with courage and dignity, never letting it get her down. She used her journey through this disease to help and encourage so many others faced with cancer.

So many of you have been so wonderful, kind and giving to our family. We thank you all for your caring thoughts and prayers rendered on our behalf through this sad time in our lives. May God bless and keep you in His care always.

There will be a memorial service on Saturday, August 19, 2017, at 11 a.m. at Calvary Baptist Church. Bro. Jim Harris will be conducting the service and Mr. and Mrs. Stan Majure will be in charge of the music.

Rhonda did not want a “funeral” but rather a “celebration.” This is exactly what we are planning to do to honor her wishes. We are going to truly “Celebrate Her Home.”

Robert Barham Family Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers the family request donations be made to the Rhonda Creel Memorial Fund c/o Kathy Hunter at 121 McLendon St. Quitman, MS 39355. Family and Friends may sign the online guestbook at robertbarhamffh.com.
