Many of Voncille’s cherished memories were of growing up in Wills Point, working at Rosa Lee’s little café with friends and family, where love, laughter, and devotion to family came first and foremost. She also loved living in Dallas to enjoy the entertainment, visual and performing arts, and fine dining.
Despite her hectic schedule, she always managed to find time to visit with family at home. Voncille was always positive, despite many trials and tribulations, honest and trustworthy, never hesitating to assist during times of crisis with an unwavering love for family. She was a wonderful mother and true friend if you were fortunate enough to have her as one.
“Mom and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Tami McNeill, Rhonda Kizzia, Sonya Hipp, Becky Ragland, Shelly Munns, Colita Rogers, and many others for their help during the last years and days of mom’s life, making it possible for her to remain at home with many fond memories. We couldn’t have done it without you.”
