Obituary for Vonna Larue Marston

Vonna Larue Marston, of Rolla, passed away Saturday, April 28, 2018 at the age of 86.
She was born on June 10, 1931 in Bristol, CO to the late Clarence Lloyd Myers and Katie Mary (Robertson) Myers.
In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by one daughter, Marolyn in 1965; two brothers and two sisters.
Vonna moved to Rolla from Colorado in 1963. She worked for the telephone company where she retired after 17 years. She began working as a Senior Companion shortly thereafter. Vonna considered it a great joy and an important work to see and fulfill the needs of others, especially the aging. When she could no longer care for others in their homes, she took on the task of being a companion to those in long term care at Phelps Regional. She found joy in always providing for others and regularly left snack baskets in the hospital waiting rooms. Vonna was brokenhearted when a stroke forced her to retire from Senior Companions in 2015 after 23 years.
Much of Vonna's time was devoted to her family. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, playing cards with her children, and family meals. She could often be found playing cars or blocks with the grandchildren, doing puzzles, or reading stories. Vonna was also a dedicated member at First Baptist Church of Rolla where she taught Sunday school for many years. She loved to share the love of Christ with others wherever she was.
Vonna will be greatly missed by her surviving family which includes: two sons, John Allyn Marston of Vichy, MO and Mark Anthony Marston and wife Robin of Rolla, MO; two daughters, Lynda Kay Pellerito of Rolla, MO and Patricia Ann O’Connor of Nixa, MO; one brother, Harold Myers and wife Carolyn of Denver, CO; eleven grandchildren, Christopher Grisham, John Pellerito, Stephen Pellerito, Rachael Caplinger, Daniel O’Connor, Eric Marston, Stacey Marston, Robert Jones, Andy Jones, Brandon Marston and Brett Marston; and thirteen great grandchildren, Austin, Olivia, Alexis, Giana, Colyn, Patrick, Ryan, Nikolas, Rhys, Lincoln, Abby, Gracie and Blayne.
A funeral service for Vonna L. Marston will be conducted at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at the Null and Son Funeral Home in Rolla. Interment will follow in the Rolla City Cemetery. A visitation for family and friends will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1 at the funeral home.
