She grew up in Hibbing and graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in journalism. In 1980, she moved to California to be closer to her sister, Donna.

Rhea and Walter enjoyed both domestic and international travel. Rhea was predeceased by her parents, Harry and Annette, and her sister and brother-in-law, Donna and Chuck Hillman. She is survived by her husband, Walter, her children, Mark, Andrea, and Dena, stepsons, Joel (Karen) and Ira, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends.
