Sharyn Rhodes, 75, of Mitchell, SD, died Monday, January 18, 2021 at her home in Mitchell. A visitation will be from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM Saturday, July 10, 2021 at Hettinger-Bittner Funeral Chapel in Emery, SD. Arrangements by Hettinger-Bittner Funeral Chapel.

Sharyn Kathrina (Huber) Rhodes was born July 8, 1945, to Alice (Dubs) and Erwin Huber in Mitchell, SD. She was a member of St John’s Lutheran Church in Emery, SD, all her life. She attended the Emery public schools and USD in Vermillion, SD.

On July 29, 1967, she married Lt. Gerry B. “Dusty” Rhodes, US Navy. To this union was born a daughter, Stacey, and a son, Gregory. Sharyn held various jobs while following her husband’s Naval career path from the East Coast to the Midwest—substitute English teacher, editor at a small newspaper, and selling real estate in Nebraska. They moved to an acreage outside of Emery, SD, when they retired. She enjoyed watching sports, fishing, reading and spending time with her family and friends. After her husband’s death, Sharyn lived on their acreage until she moved to Mitchell in 2019 due to health concerns.

Sharyn's Family--So sorry for your loss. I used to play with Sharyn when I came to my Grandpa &
Grandma Heiter's home. I have some very fond memories of those days. She was a good playmate. Hoping the memories you have of her will help to ease the pain. Sending love and prayers your way.
