Born in Bloomington, IL, living in Joliet. Vonna was a devout Christian and a member of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. She truly loved her dear friends, neighbors, family, three grandsons, granddaughter and all her fur grandbabies. Vonna was "mom" to so many, who loved her like their own. She always went out of her way to help in so many ways. Vonna was a prime example of what a mother should be. She was known for taking pride in having a spotless clean house, making the best cakes and decorated them for all occasions, always decorating for every holiday, hosting the parties and had the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus make an appearance.
Thank you to Dr. Abdul Sankari, Patty Peterson, NP and the staff at Heartland for the wonderful care, also thank you to JOHA, Joliet Community Hospice and Amita Home Health.
