Posted by mcauleyhighschool on March 24, 2023

Rhonda Lynn Barker, 48, who was born on July 10, 1974 in Winter Garden, Florida went home to be with Jesus on March 16, 2023 in Leesburg, Florida.

Rhonda’s Mom (Barbara Petty Cochrane) and Dad (Ronald Martin Cochrane, Sr.) always lovingly called her their little “sugar booger.”  She attended school at Lovell Elementary in Apopka, Ocoee Elementary, Whitfield Academy, and graduated from Calvary Baptist Christian School.  During her time at school, she developed a love of sports and was on the volleyball, basketball, and softball teams for five years at Calvary.  She worked as a Chef/Cook for 20 years.  She planted beautiful flower gardens everywhere she lived, and she loved doing arts and crafts.

She was predeceased by her husband, Mark Alan Woods, Sr..  Rhonda is survived by her Mom and Dad, her brothers, Ronnie Cochrane (Christy), and Joshua Cochrane (Hope), her ex-husband, Jay Barker, her four children, Mark Alan Woods, Jr. (Katie), Brandon Barker (Megan), Brittany Barker (Nick), Michael Barker, and ten grandchildren

Her family is so thankful that God drew her to Jesus and saved her through her faith in Him.  She smiled so much and had such wonderful peace the last couple of months of her life.  Even though she knew her life here was coming to an end, she had a supernatural peace from God as she left us and moved on to Heaven.

A Celebration of Life will take place on April 1, 2023 at 11:00 am at Lake Eustis Christian Church located at 315 E. Orange Ave., Eustis, Florida.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Rhonda’s name to Lake Eustis Christian Church.
