She touched many so many in many ways during her memorable life. She gave all of us such courage and hope, and reminded us each of the preciousness of life. Precious memories of her life growing up in the hollers of Leslie County, KY and precious memories of unconditional love for her children and family. She was a member of Dix River Church of Christ.

Rhoda is survived by her loving sister, Ruth Warmouth; three sons, Herman Hacker Jr., Dudley W. Hacker I (Tammy) and Conner Joseph Hacker; two daughters, Nancy Padgett (Rickey I) and Becky Hacker; and numerous grandchildren, great- grandchildren, and one great-great-granddaughter; and a special niece Carolyn Craig (Bob).

She was preceded in death by her parents, Mitchell and Rebecca Day Joseph, two daughters, Kathy and Mary Hacker, two sisters, and four brothers.

In honors of our momma’s wishes, we welcome you to graveside services which will be held at the Dix River Church of Christ Cemetery on Preachersville Road on Friday, May 19, 2017 at 3 p.m.
