In her 40-year career, she worked at several prominent local law firms and graduated from Lamar as a paralegal later in her life.
Rhoda retired in Beaumont and spent many years cooking to feed a variety of friends and family members who loved her delicious Lebanese and Syrian foods.

During retirement, Rhoda volunteered for 10 years at Henry's Place, a local drop-in center for the homeless.
