Date of Passing: Nov 30, 2021Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
LILETT (LIL) RHODEN
She was born to Jeremiah and Adassa Brown in Clarendon, Jamaica and emigrated to England to pursue her education in the medical field. During a day trip to London, she met her husband of 54 years, John, and together they had three children: Ian, Nigel and Nadine. We know that she wants to be remembered for the care she provided during her career as a nurse, and the many children whom she delivered into this world as a midwife.
Lil was a devoted Christian and considered her church as her backbone. She loved her daytime TV series (especially Y&R), shopping to accessorize herself and home, maintaining medical research, and making sure she had a strong presence in the lives of her children and grandchildren.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)
Mrs. Rhoden was the kindest, most willing to give of herself and selfless people I have ever known. When I was away at school, she sent me cards so I would know I wasn't alone, that touched me more than words can say. Her family are the warmest and most giving people around. Her memory is cherished and she is enjoying the loving arms of her Lord right now. May he wrap His loving arms of comfort around her entire family during this terrible time of grief. - Posted by: Charlene (Friend of the family) on: Dec 10, 2021

Mrs Rhoden had a presence about her that very few women have. Her smile could light up a room and you could feel her sincerity and warmth almost immediately upon meeting her. I am so grateful that I had the pleasure of knowing her (and the Rhoden family) since my youth/school-years. Sincere condolences to all of the family. Sending hugs & thoughts of comfort to you all. Ps: I am going to miss Mrs Rhoden correcting Mr Rhoden, I can hear her now “It’s Stacey not Tracey, John!” Xoxoxo. - Posted by: Stacey Cann (Family Friend) on: Dec 08, 2021
I will always remember her smiling face. She was so motherly, made me feel like a little girl, whenever she talks to me. She was so very loving, caring and kind. Rest in peace li'l. - Posted by: Kamilah Nazeer (Friend ) on: Dec 07, 2021
