Vonnie was known as the peacemaker. She loved all her family unconditionally. The are many words that would best describe Vonnie but the one best suited for the most incredible woman, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend...GENUIN. Happiest when helping others, her beautiful smile was brightest working with the church, and helping the less fortunate. A loving spirit, which you knew soon after you met her. I think of the last words she spoke to us, "I know" (I KNOW THAT) will be with us forever.... Leon.
My Mother taught me everything I need in life except how to live without her. Not a moment goes by, that I do not wish for one more day together. She was a great inspiration to me, and she will be forever missed. I love you Ma....George.
Mom, we love you and will always miss you. You filled our hearts with love, which we will always cherish. Mom as you look down at your kids and grandkids from up above; you will see that we will always miss you and you will never leave our hearts. Love you forever and ever.... Mattie.
Mom, you have taught me and my children so much. You have given us true meaning of love, compassion, and faith. We love you more than words can describe. Everyday without you will be a challenge, but the strength you have shown us over the years will help guide us. You will be with us in everything we do because I know you are still here. So, you go be in peace Mom, take those wings and own them. Show them who’s boss. Ilytteotwab.... LeeAnn.
I KNOW, I KNOW THAT..... Mom. Words to best describe our beautiful Yvonne can be found in her bible, Matt:5:8,9.
