Vonda Lee Owen, age 56, of Little Canada, went home to be with the Lord on Tues March 06, 2018. Vonda was a faithful woman of God, who loved to sing praises and shared the truth of Jesus Christ through her life and testimony.
She adored her loving husband of 39 years, David C Owen, known by many as Snooky. She dearly loved her children, son Davis C Owen and wife Shandi, son Travis D Owen and wife Jennifer, and daughter Sheena L Messer and husband Darren, who all called her Mom. She was blessed with beautiful and precious grandchildren who she also adored, Tyler, James, and Jocelynn Owen and Marlee and baby Messer, who knew her as Nana.
Vonda was a member of Charlies Creek Baptist Church She was a huge inspiration and a beacon of light. The spirt and love she carried always spilled over on anyone she met, and her smile would light up the room. She loved the Lord and as a member of The Christian Soldiers, she was able to spread Gods love through song. She instilled into the hearts of her family the Word of God and was a great prayer warrior. If ever you had a need she was there. Even in her sickness, she thought of others first and would call out to God in prayer for that need.
And in the midst of her battle with cancer, we clung to the scripture 1st Chronicles 5:20 ": they cried to God in the battle and he was intreated of them, because they put their trust in him."
She was greatly loved by many and will be missed.
