Remembering Rhoda

RhodaIt is with sadness that we formally announce that Rhoda Singer, our dear friend and ardent supporter of the Financial Women of San Francisco for over 30-years, passed away on the morning of Tuesday August 2nd. As anyone who has attended an FWSF event knows, our friend Rhoda has been the welcoming face of the organization at every event, big or small, rain or shine, for many years. In the background, she also kept the FWSF organized in more ways that we can count. Rhoda loved our organization deeply, she lived a rich life and personally taught many of us a great deal.

Services for Rhoda were held on Friday, August 5th and were attended by family and friends from near and far. The services were beautiful, heartfelt and standing room only as so many joined to honor her, including many of us from the FWSF. We were all fortunate to know her and she will be sorely missed by us personally and by the entire FWSF organization. Thank you Rhoda!
