Rhonda loved many things in life especially her family and friends, Calvary Christian Church, and cooking delicious gourmet meals for everyone.
She touched many lives and never refused anyone that she felt was in need of help. She was always there with comfort and kind words. She truly had one of the biggest hearts this world has ever seen. Many people say they thought of her as a second mother.
Among her many interests were gardening, volunteering in church ministry, ceramics, crafts, hiking/walking, traveling, working out, and most of all her loving family whom she doted on.
Heaven help anyone who walked into her kitchen without removing their shoes first!
She was loved and cherished by many including her husband Raymond Perkins, her daughter Renee Courtois and fiance Brian Kelly, her late son John Courtois Jr., her son Joseph Courtois, her daughter Jinell Courtois and companion Charlie, her grandchildren Abi Blouin, Janee Courtois, Jordan Courtois, Ciara Pina, Joseph Brogna-Courtois, Charlie Courtois-Davis.
Rhonda’s late brother Ronald Aylward Jr., his wife Gail, and their son Ronny 3rd. Her father Ronald Aylward Sr. and wife Pat. Her late mother Lorraine “Cosco” Aylward. Her cousin Janice Abernathy and many more cousins and neices and nephews. Ellen Rosenberg, Renata Daly, and Joanne Defeo just to name a few of her dearest friends. And her late grandmother Amelia Rizzo whom she was especially close with.
Service Information: There will be a memorial service on Saturday, January 8 at 11 am at Calvary Christian Church, 47 Grove St. Lynnfield Ma. Burial will be private and at a later date at Puritan Lawn in Peabody where she will be next to her beloved late son Johnny Courtois Jr.
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
