Obituary for Vonna Lee Tice

Vonna Lee Tice, age 88, passed away peacefully at her Kansas City, Kansas home on Friday, March 1, 2019 with her family by her side. She was born on July 23rd, 1930 in Ozawkie, Kansas and was the youngest of the 7 children of Nathan and Zella Meredith. She had 3 sisters and 3 brothers.

Vonna married Eldon Tice in 1950 and they had one daughter, Tonya. To her family she was known and loved as “Nannie”, the title she assumed upon becoming a grandmother. Over the course of her adult life, she was an amazing cook and enjoyed caring for her home and spending time outdoors working on her lawn and landscaping.

Without a doubt, the most important thing to Vonna was always the care and well-being of her family. Although she was small in size, she had a powerful, mountain-sized will and was tough as nails. She was a bit of a perfectionist, with a tendency to stew over everything, but it was a result of her unwavering drive to make sure everything was right with anything that concerned her family. She loved and cared for her daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchildren very much and she will be greatly missed by all of them, as well as her friends.

Vonna is survived by her daughter, Tonya Haase. Her grandson Scott Haase, his wife Shelly and her granddaughter Jennifer Gruber and her husband, Michael. She is also survived by 7 great-grandchildren; Jordan, Jessica, Jenna and James Haase and Lauren and Blake Gruber. Vonna was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, sisters and her husband.

Visitation will take place at Highland Park Funeral Home on Friday March 15, 2019 from 10:30am – 11:30am, with burial following at Leavenworth National Cemetery at 12:30 pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Interim Hospice of Overland Park, KS.
