Vonnie was born in Gretna, Nebraska on December 28, 1938, to Lyle and Meta (Brogren) Shipley. She moved to Sidney, Nebraska when she was seventeen which led to her meeting Joe L. Meyers and they were married on December 12, 1957 in Fort Morgan, Colorado. They started their family with twin sons and resided there for ten years moving to Gillette, Wyoming and welcoming a daughter. In 1979 they moved to Sheridan, Wyoming where together they opened and operated Custom Mufflers & Accessories from August 1979 to December 1998. After retiring they spent the winters in Yuma, Arizona until recently.

Vonnie enjoyed all their friends immensely over the years on the various adventures from large get togethers, camping, motorcycle trips, snowmobiling, etc. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She will be remembered for her strength, devotion to her family and friends, and her spark for life. She fought a lengthy battle with her heart and lung issues and is now free to go dance.

Vonnie survived her two sons Dean (Shelly) and Dennis (Debbie) Meyers from Gillette, Wyoming. A daughter, Diana (Tom) Riesen of Sheridan. Her grandchildren: Dustin (Ashlie) Meyers, Cody (Chelsea) Meyers, Tashina Meyers, Dani (Dan) Smith, Josh Robinson, Tyler Riesen and Lane Riesen.
