Vonda Lee Elder Miles, 87, of Rustburg, died Tuesday, July 17, 2018. She was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Frank “Buck” Miles, and by her daughter-in-law, Jane Miles. 

Vonda was born November 15, 1930, in Rustburg, a daughter of the late Mary Louise Elder. Vonda was retired from the Central Virginia Training Center after 28 years as a certified nurse’s aide and was a member of the Lynchburg Seventh Day Adventist Church. Vonda enjoyed planting flowers, gardening, going to yard-sales, crafts, visiting friends, spending time with family, and attending church.  Vonda loved her family dearly and lived her life for others. She followed Christ’s examples on how to serve others. Her desire for her family was for everyone to have a close relationship with our Lord and to be ready for His second coming. Praise God!
