Vonda Lee Prindiville passed away on Tuesday February 28, 2023, in Richland, Washington. She was 83 years old. Her husband and other family members were by her side.
Vonda was born March 21, 1939, in Williston, North Dakota to Patrick and Myrna (Casey) Hughes. She was the oldest of seven children. Vonda graduated in 1957 from Epping High School. She was on the basketball team and played drums in the school band.
After high school, Vonda met the love of her life, Alan “Mike” Prindiville. They were married on August 2, 1958, in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Williston, North Dakota. Together they had five children. The family lived in North Dakota and South Dakota before relocating to Washington State, making Richland their home in 1968.
Vonda loved her family and always made sure they came first. Being a mother gave her great joy. She was a member of Christ the King Church and her Catholic faith was an important part of her life. She could often be found helping with many church, school and Knights of Columbus activities. She enjoyed fishing, going to yard sales with family, and playing bingo.
Vonda was known for her kindness and love of children, and (most) dogs. Her smile and friendliness were contagious. She was always willing to help others in any way she could.
Vonda worked as a receptionist and chair-side assistant for the Richland Dental Center for many years. She was extremely proud of being a hard worker and it showed. Her family, home and work reflected her dedication and commitment to everything she did.
Vonda is survived by her husband, Alan “Mike” Prindiville; daughters: Carrie D’Andrea (Ron), Mary Prindiville (Ken Rutledge), Laurie Noles, Michele Anderson (John); son, Greg Prindiville (Kerry); brothers: Dennis Hughes (Marge), James Hughes (Paula), Michael Hughes (Peggy), brothers-in-law: Pat Prindiville, Robert Egge; 12 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
Vonda is preceded in death by her parents, Myrna Hughes and Pat Hughes; stepfather, James Shannon; sisters, Kathryn Benoy and Patricia Egge; brother, Patrick Dunn Hughes; brother-in-law, Tom Benoy; and grandson, Travis D’Andrea.
A family graveside burial service will be held on Wednesday, March 8th at 3:00 PM at Sunset Gardens.
Honorary pall bearers: Greg Prindiville, Dennis Hughes, James Hughes, Michael Hughes, Pat Prindiville and Robert Egge.
A funeral mass and gathering of family and friends are being planned for this summer. Date to be announced.
Vonda and I worked together for years at the Richland Dental Center ..Watched our kids grow up I know you will all miss her but have many happy memories of life with her
My sincere condolences to the Prindiville family. Myron always thought very highly of Vonda. He had very fond memories of her.
Blessings to you all.
Mike & family I’m so sorry about your loss, always loved Vonda. Have memories of the Roberts Family Reunions. Sorry to have lost touch with the Hughes family. My prayers are with all of you at this time,
We have so many cherished memories of Vonda Lee. She lived with us for a time before she married Mike. I remember she was in the hospital around 1957 and I ended up sharing a room with her as I had an appendix removed and was 9 years old. She got discharged before me and I cried my eyes out that I would not be going with her. We always had great visits over the years and I had taken my mom out there in her later years to visit. We had a great conversation with her son Greg today and with all her family and friends well. She will always be in our hearts.
Sorry for your loss. Your family are in my payers.
