Vonder Pruitt Priest

Vonder Priest, 65, died Thursday, Dec. 22, 2011, after a battle with cancer.

She requested a Celebration of Life, which will be announced by family at a later date.



Written 12/23: Vonda passed Thursday evening about 8 p.m. at Heartwood Lodge to be with God and find a place where there was no pain. She was the best person, mother, wife, and friend I have ever known and I miss her already. She always cared about others more than herself. I loved her dearly and there will be a void in my heart for many years to come. She fought the (cancer) disease every step of the way, even when they sent her home to die she told the doctor "Don't you tell me that, you can't give up on me. Don't you ever tell me that again". Ten days ago she told me on the phone that she was going to have her daughter take her shopping because this was going to be the best Christmas ever. She fought hard to make that happen but God had other plans.
