She is preceded in death by her husband, Dan Flournoy, her parents, three sisters and two brothers. Vonnie graduated from Knox City High School in 1944. Like many of her generation she fell in love with a young soldier, Dan Flournoy, who was stationed in Europe during World War II as a member of the United States Army. They were married two weeks after his return from service on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1946, and were blessed with over 60 years of marriage. Vonnie and Dan settled in Odessa, Texas and lived there for many years. She graduated from Odessa College's School of Nursing as a LPN in February 1972.

After nineteen years, she retired from her nursing career and moved to Lubbock, Texas in 1991 to live close to her daughter and her family. She lived her final years in Arkansas near her son and his family. Vonnie was a member of Southcrest Baptist Church in Lubbock, Texas.
