Vonda Rasmussen

Vonda Lee Rasmussen, age 78, of Lakeview, quietly left the Earth on the next step of her journey in the morning of Saturday, November 5th, 2016, surrounded by her loving family. Born on September 8th, 1938, Vonda graduated from Greenville High School in 1957, and married Gary Rasmussen on October 7th, 1966. Vonda had one son, Tim Rasmussen, of Lakeview, in 1968, whom she greatly cared for her entire life. Vonda was a grandma, a caretaker, and the matriarch of her family, always taking charge and ensuring a Sunday night dinner was had with her family. Family and keeping family together was Vonda’s main emphasis in life, being born into a family of six other siblings. She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Gerald and Marguerite Thompson, her husband, Gary Rasmussen, her sisters Ardith Bennett and Christie Nicholson, her brother, Jerry (Butch) Thompson, sister in-law Ruth Thompson, and brother in-law Alvin (Abe) Richards. Vonda will live on through her devoted son, Tim Rasmussen, daughter in-law, Jenny Rasmussen, grandsons Jourdan and Garrison Rasmussen, and forever loved and appreciated by her three surviving sisters, Geraldine Richards, Louise Drain, and Judy Taylor, and brother in-laws Lyle Bennett and Richard (Nick) Nicholson. Vonda will have a private memorial for her family later in the week. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Montcalm County Commission on Aging.
