Ramona Yvonne “Vonnie” Beach, 89 of DeLeon Springs went to be with Jesus on August 18, 2023 at AdventHealth in Daytona Beach. She was born in Putnam County on December 27, 1933 to Earl Herman White and Jimmie Mosley White as the youngest of three children (all girls). Vonnie was a member of First Baptist Church of DeLeon Springs for over seventy years and a former member of the DeLeon Springs Lioness Club.

She was predeceased by her husband of 56 years, Billie Rex Beach, Sr. and her two sisters Latrelle Ritch (Johnny) and Winona Improta (Leegrand). She is survived by her son Billie Rex Beach, Jr. (Lisa), daughter Liela Marie McGee (Monty), adopted daughter Sue Lancto; four grandchildren -- Heather Eileen McKiernan (Joey), Ashley Janine Best (Mike), Constance Lee Elam (Tony), and Chelsea Rena Beach (Pete); seven great-grandchildren -- Dane Rex McKiernan, Rylan Maddox Best, Everly Quinn Best, Indie Rose Best, Brooke McKenzie Elam, Taylor Lee Elam and Macie Lee Elam; and nephew Allen Lee Improta (Jackie).

Gram (or grandma), as we called her, always knew how to make things better on rough days – and happier on good days. She genuinely cared so much about people – and it was undeniable. No one would ever be without or cold if grandma had a part in it. She was such a good listener and role model -- and oh my goodness was she funny and fun to be around! She just made you feel good. We always looked up to grandma – and will continue to do so in her memory and wish that we could be half as amazing as she truly was. May we all take a page out of Gram’s book in this life. We love you, Gram, more than we could ever possibly try to describe – and we’ll all play and laugh again one day in Heaven.

The family will receive friends on Friday, August 25th from 6-8pm at Allen-Summerhill Funeral Home in DeLand. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, August 26th at 10am at First Baptist Church of DeLeon Springs, with interment to follow at Pinehurst Cemetery in DeLeon Springs.
