RIP: Rhonda Barnes

We are saddened to report that Rhonda Barnes has lost her brave battle against cancer. Friends have confirmed the news.

“We love you and we will forever hear the beat of your drums!” read a posting from her band Rockology.

Rhonda meant so many things to so many people. The mother of beautiful Megan, girlfriend of Tony, daughter of Johanna Fish and one heck of a drummer for Rockology.

For months folks near and far did whatever they could: prays, fundraisers to wrist band sales, to locals donating the proceeds from their garage sales,  to help Rhonda in her battle against advanced Multiple Myeloma.

As recently as late last year Rhonda was preparing for a Stem Cell Transplant at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Cancer Hospital, where she received the majority of her treatment.

Our condolences go out to all of Rhonda's many family and friends. Please feel free to leave your memories of this wonderful woman in our comments section. We will update this story as soon as we learn of funeral arrangements.
