Vonda L. Stefancic

Age 83 of Wilmington, Illinois, died Friday, May 26, 2023 at Ascension Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, Illinois.

Born August 24, 1939 in Morris, Illinois, Vonda Lea was a daughter of Emmett and Grace (Moats) Davis. She was raised and educated in Marseilles, Illinois, and on November 26, 1970 she married Anthony Stefancic, and together they moved to Wilmington where they would live and raise their family.

After marriage, Vonda worked for the Joliet Arsenal Ammunition Plant until she left to focus on raising her children. As her children grew, she gained employment with the Wilmington School District where she worked in the cafeteria and as a janitor. Vonda also worked for Brownie Products Inc. in Gardner. She took great pleasure in watching her grandchildren's sporting events, and later seeing her great grandchildren come into the world. Vonda loved being a mother and grandmother, and will be missed dearly by those who loved her.

Survivors include her three children: Jonathan Stefancic of Wilmington, Tammy (Kenny) Green of Tennessee, and Terry Carroll of Missouri; three grandchildren: Amanda, Stephanie, and Taylor Stefancic; three great grandchildren: Camden, Cayden, and Sienna; as well as several nieces and nephews and special friends, Kevin and Dawna Kavanaugh, who took great care of Vonda.

Vonda was preceded in death by her parents, her brother and sister: Emmett Davis, Jr. and Carol Colson, and one niece, Laura.
