September 27, 1933 - December 31, 2019
BASTROP, TEXAS - It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved sister, mother, grandmother and friend Vonda Whitt Puckett on December 31st, 2019 in Bastrop, Texas. She was born September 27th, 1933 in Clintwood, Virginia to Mattie Fleming Whitt and Henry Walder Whitt. Vonda grew up in rural Virginia on the family farm and spent time in Michigan as a young adult. She married her husband, Claude Puckett, an officer in the U.S. Air Force on Labor Day, 1955. This began a long and challenging journey as a military spouse. For the next 20 years, she endured moving every few years when Claude was transferred or deployed. This included living in France, where her daughter Belinda and son Byron were born. She was in charge of the household when Claude was deployed while raising a family of three. Particularly difficult was caring for three children and supporting Claude during his combat tours in Vietnam. Upon retiring from the Air Force, Claude and Vonda moved to the San Francisco area where Vonda worked in the electronics industry for several years. Once retired from working, she enjoyed spending time with her family, her husband, and their cats. After Claude passed, she moved to Texas and lived across the street from her daughter, who was her best friend and caregiver. She spent her last years close to home, enjoying visits from her friends and family. Vonda loved gardening, nature, animals and the many birds that visited her backyard feeders. She especially enjoyed the company of her cat, Lucky. Vonda is survived by her sister Ann Hughes, her daughter Belinda and her husband David Thompson, her son Stephen and his wife Christine Puckett, and her grandson Bradley Puckett. Funeral Services for Vonda Whitt Puckett will be conducted at 2:00 p.m. Thursday, January 16, 2020, in Castlewood Funeral Home Chapel, Castlewood, Virginia with Rev. Lee Kidd officiating. Interment will follow in Temple Hill Memorial Park, Castlewood, Virginia. The family will receive friends from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. Thursday, January 16, 2020, in Castlewood Funeral Home, Castlewood, Virginia.
