Obituary

Princess Reverend Reva Rhodes Takuro was born November 21, 1950 in Roper, North Carolina to Ida Webb Rhodes and the late Henry Rhodes. God called her home to the pearly gates of heaven Tuesday, May 30, 2017 to be His new guardian angel. She is preceded in death by her five siblings, Janie Rhodes Sanders, Joe Louis Rhodes, Stanley Rhodes, Vernon Rhodes and Evelyn Rhodes.
At the young age of 12 is when she gave her life to Christ. She was baptized and joined Shiloh Church of Christ in Roper, North Carolina. Reva later moved to Richmond, Virginia and transferred her membership to Cedar Street Baptist Church where she was very active. She attended Smith Madden Business College, Virginia Commonwealth University, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College and Richmond Virginia Seminary where she received a wealth of education.
She worked 40 years in Richmond, Virginia as a social worker before retiring to dedicate her life to the ministry full-time. Rev. Reva was involved in outreach ministries for over 40 years working with Love Outreach, Blessed Hope Baptist Church, Cedar Street Baptist Church, Men and Women Shelters within the Tri-cities of Virginia and neighboring communities. The William Robinson Center was blessed to have her minister every fourth Tuesday. God birthed a ministry out of her and she was assigned to Shepherd of Glorious Church & Witness of Christ Visionary. Since 1990, she had preached to people of all walks of life, and was a dedicated woman of God. On November 20, 2016 she was ordained as the Rev. Reva Rhodes Takuro to the office of Pastor.
She was joined together in marriage and to her life companion and true friend, Zaccheaus Adewole Takuro on July 22, 1981. Her many talents were playing the piano and singing.
Rev. Reva has approached the assignment from God in the spirit of Solomon who declared: "Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?" (2 Chronicles 1:10). She was a loving wife, sister, aunt and mother figure to many in the community that lent a help hand.
The gift of love she left behind will always be treasured. Her triumphant was announced and she leaves to cherish her memories, a beloved husband, Zaccheaus Adewole Takuro; one step-son, Akinrinde Takuro; seven sisters, Merlene Simpson, Hazel Simpson, Kinnell Rhodes Bender (Rev. Kenneth Bender), Rosa Hill (Earnest), Joyce Rhodes, Ezzaline Downing and Judy Rhodes; three brothers, Robert Rhodes, Allen Rhodes, Jr. and William Rhodes (Rhonda); and a host of other relatives and friends.
A Godly woman is a woman of value.
She is worth far more than rubies.
