Rhonda Edens grew up in Johnson City and attended ETSU. When she started her career, though, she did not expect to work in the funeral service industry. She spent twenty years working for the Washington County Health Department as a bank cashier and later as deputy registrar.
But because of her career in the Health Department, Rhonda knew people in the funeral service industry.
“I worked with different funeral homes completing death certificates. Morris-Baker staff just stood out above all the other funeral homes as they worked tirelessly to get whatever was needed done for each client.”
The kind of customer service that Rhonda saw Morris-Baker staff exemplify was the kind of customer service that she believed in, and this inspired her to consider joining our staff.
In spring 2021, Rhonda joined the Morris-Baker family as reception and administrative assistant. She says that what she likes most about her job is the “interaction with families we serve, and on their worst days being able to help them cope with the loss of their loved one.”
Rhonda is married with two adult children and a grandchild. When she is not working, Rhonda enjoys reading, swimming, going to yard sales, and spending time with her granddaughter. “We love watching sports,” Rhonda says.
We’re so happy that Rhonda has joined our team, helping keep our operations running smoothly and offering a kind and warm presence to anyone who calls or walks through our front doors.
“The generosity shown to me and each family we serve is positively overwhelming,” she says.
We think the same of her.
