COSHOCTON: Rhonda A. Blair, 60, of CR 297, went to be with her heavenly father on Thursday, January 23, 2014 as the result of an automobile accident.

Memorial Hospital, and Echoing Hills Village before her retirement. She was a devoted member of the Coshocton Church of God for over 40 years, where she has served as a Sunday School teacher and children's church leader.
