Vonnie and I became friends and coworkers about 13 years ago at Buena Vida Estates, her as Housekeeping Director and myself as Activities Director. Vonnie retired the same time as I left for another job. We were determined to keep in touch. So, for 11 years every month Vonnie, Sue, Beth, Karen and I (all fellow co-workers) had dinner together. We will miss Vonnie's constant smile and soft voice. She was a woman who loved her family and friends. She had a big heart of love
and showed it! I will miss Vonnie.

Robbi and Chuck, she loved you, along with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to share stories of her family. We know she is loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her.
