Rhoda A. LaTulippe peacefully passed away on October 20, 2023 at Wesley Health Care Center. Rhoda entered the world on September 15, 1935, in Schenectady, New York, born to Fred and Ruth DeLap.
Rhoda wore many hats during her lifetime; she was a dedicated homemaker and a caring babysitter. She even left her mark in the world of music by composing a song titled "Saratoga Springs," which she copyrighted. She recorded this tune under the Peddy Records label, where it found its place. Rhoda also nurtured a children's chorus, highlighting her enduring love for music. Her guitar strumming and melodic voice often resonated as she sang alongside her two daughters during visits to nursing homes in the region.
Rhoda's passion extended to her community involvement, as she served as a chaperone for the VFW Thunderbird Drum and Bugle Corp. In the past, she even played the trumpet in the Ballston Spa Fireman's band. Laughter and quality time with her family were paramount in her life, bringing her immense joy.
Rhoda was preceded in death by her siblings: Dolores Gabri, Rosemary Orologio, Iona Weston, and Gary DeLap.
She is survived by her loving children, Terrie LaTulippe and Tammy LaTulippe, as well as three grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandson, and her sister, Cathy Ramsey.
In accordance with the family's wishes, there will be no formal services held to commemorate Rhoda's life.
