Resided in Anchorage, Alaska


Vonna Lee Duff, 56, passed away peacefully at her home in Anchorage Alaska January 5, 2020. Her departure was swift but not unexpected. She defied the odds of her cancer diagnoses and lived as vibrantly as she could this past year, spending as much time with her friends and family as her illness permitted.

Vonna was born December 15, 1963 to John and Shelia Duff in Anchorage Alaska. She remained in Alaska where she raised her two children.

Vonna enjoyed spending time outdoors, camping, beach combing and bird watching. Her family and friends were very important to her and she was always quick with her wit.

She is survived by her mother, Shelia D'Elia and Step-Father Frank D'Elia, of Cederedge, Colorado; sisters, Terri Harper and Kimberly Duff, of Anchorage, Alaska; sister Kellie Duff, of Gladstone, Missouri; son, Douglas Duff, daughter in-law Kim Duff, grandsons Ashton and Kyler of Portland, Oregon; daughter, Sherie Duff, and her namesake granddaughter Evonna, of Anchorage, Alaska. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews as well as great nieces and nephews.

Vonna's father John preceded her in death.

Arrangements are with Cremation Society of Alaska.

A celebration of life will be held this summer. Please contact the family for details.
