Fonda J. Rushing Broadaway, age 67 of Gallatin, Tennessee and formerly of Hobart, Indiana passed away December 31, 2018 surrounded by her family. Mrs. Broadaway was born on August 30, 1951 in Corinth, Mississippi to the late Eugene Talmadge Rushing and Helen Baggett Rushing. Fonda was born and raised in Corinth, later moving to Indiana where she lived for many years, and finally to Tennessee to be close to her children. She loved her grandchildren more than anything, was a member of VFW Post 5365 in Hobart, IN for many years, enjoyed fishing, watching NASCAR, going to flea markets, and slugburgers-a Corinth, Mississippi specialty. Fonda was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother; she will be deeply missed.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Thomas Rushing. She is survived by her husband of 36 years, Daniel Broadaway; son, Edward Broadaway (Karen); daughter, Heather Broadaway (Elizabeth); grandsons; Jackson, Blake and Tennyson Broadaway; sisters, Charlotte Rushing Butler (Darrell), Barbara Rushing Perkins, and Michelle Rushing (Tina); faithful companion and puppy, Missy; lifelong best friend, Beth Barney; and several nieces, nephews, family, and friends. A Life Celebration honoring Fonda will be held in Indiana at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the National Kidney Foundation.

    So sorry for your loss. I remember hanging out at your house when i was a kid. One time, she wouldn’t let me leave the dinner table until i ate my peas. This standoff lasted a long time until she finally left the room and Eddie ate them for me. LOL

    I cannot believe I am writing one of the final notes to you mom. I absolutely love you and my heart is entirely shattered. You were and are my everything and my hero. I promise to carry on your legacy in my heart. You made me promise to be strong and not to cry and I can’t do either of those things. But I do promise you to try! 💜💜. You will never be forgotten.

    Mom, I have read this over and over. It doesn’t seem real. I hope you have found my mom. Pls watch out for your babies Ten, Jacks, and Blake. I’m will never forget your kindness in my darkest hours. Our times at Broken arrow. Shopping trips to Baileys. Your love of humming birds. Your passion for working in the yard. Or spoiling your babies. Fly high momma ❤️

    Broadaway family I am very sorry for your loss. No words can truly comfort, except to know that I and my family are thinking and praying for you and your mother.
    May she find peace and rest in the Kingdom of the Lord.

    My deepest condolences to Fonda’s family & friends. My sister Lynn Erwin was friends in high school with her. What I remember, she was a free spirit & enjoyed life to its fullest. May she RIP!
