Myria Yvonne (Vonnie) Crutchfield Allison, 67, July 20, 2021, she closed her eyes at home and woke up in heaven at the feet of Jesus her Savior and reunited with her husband Chester, whom she has longed to be with for the last 4 years since his passing.

Born November 5, 1953, the daughter of Roscoe Robert Crutchfield and Rose Marie Bridges in the city of Greensboro. She attended Northeast High School and graduated from RCC Nursing School in 1975. She was an active member of Philadelphia Baptist Chapel since 1995. She worked for Moses Cone as an IV nurse for years and then retired from United Healthcare. She enjoyed spending time with friends, going on trips, working at the Science Center, swimming, playing Pokemon Go, reading with the children at Madison Elementary, having Bible studies at home and quilting.

Preceded in death by her grandparents, her parents and her faithful loving husband Chester Holt Allison Sr. Surviving family members are her three children Kim Tucker (Rodney), Chester Allison Jr “Chad” (Karen), Rob Allison (Mary), 5 beautiful granddaughters, Kelsey, Taylor, Nikki, Hunter and Faith, 3 precious great-grandchildren, Johnny, Ellie and Jayce. Her sister Jeannie (Stephen) and her aunt Frances Hoover, along with many other cousins, nieces, nephews and other family members. She also leaves behind her loving cat animal companion Smokey aka my daddy’s puppy.

Due to Covid and keeping everyone safe we will not be gathering at anyone’s home at this time but will have a special home going celebration at a later date, to be announced.

Special thanks to Frances Smith for being the bestest friend to our mother this side of Heaven. You were there when we couldn’t be and she couldn’t have asked for someone better to help her in her time of need.

I will miss my friend and neighbor just knowing she was across the road and I could visit and talk with her was a blessing. she was always such a happy person and always upbeat. I knew she missed her Chester and I know she is happy now to be with him and to see Jesus, oh what a day that must have been. To her family I will be praying for God to give you all the strength in the coming days and months,

Vonnie father Bob, was my mother's youngest brother.

I grew up with Vonnie, we were neighbors and she would play with her pony in her backyard as I was playing with my dog. We later dated briefly before she met Chester. I remember going to Winston to pick her up to go to Greensboro to see Sly and the family Stone. Also remember her being a bus driver for Northeast High School. She will be missed. She was special.

Kim, I am praying for you and your families and your brothers and their families. love cuz Maggie

Vonnie is my 1st cousin. Her father is Bob Crutchfield, my dad’s youngest brother. I know there are many fathers who love their daughters, but I have never known one who loved them more than Vonnie’s dad loved her and Jeannie. My condolences to Vonnie’s children and grandchildren. All of you made her proud.

I am sorry to read about Vonnie’s passing. My condolences to the family and my prayers for your comfort in the Lord. I haven’t seen her since NEHS71 but I’ve got this memory of her smiling and laughing when I’ve thought of high school.

We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Vonnie. She was definitely one of the sweetest, kindness, and most caring woman you could ever know. She will be missed here on earth. Can you only imagine what her homecoming reunion loojed like when she saw the face of Jesus. I know she was shouting and running the streets of gold to find her Chester. Oh Happy Day! We are praying for the entire family that God will wrap his arms around you all and hold you tight giving you peace and comfort now and for the days ahead. Be blessed!
🙏The Holbrook Family

Vonnie will be truly missed. One fond memory is how much she loved children. She was a wonderful Sunday school teacher to my granddaughters. One day when we were in her area on the way to Walmart my 6 year old granddaughter said can we go to see the lady with the blue hair? We all loved her spunk and her creative side. We will cherish all the cute things she made for us as well as the many memories just having fun.
