Vonda C. Miller

September 17, 1960 ~ December 11, 2021 (age 61)


Vonda “Peewee” C. Miller, of Bishop, Texas, passed away Saturday, December 11th 2021 while surrounded by her family, after a long fight with Behavioral Variant Frontotemporal Degeneration. She was 61.

Vonda was born on the 17th of September in 1960 to Roy Corman, Jr and Veda Lee Tedder Corman in Corpus Christi, Texas. Her life journey in her early years ignited her passions for experiencing the joy and wonder of life through the experiences of friends and loved ones; and, her genuine interest in the well-being of others. Those passions lead her to her calling of caring for others, professionally.

Peewee’s delight in caring for others moved her “Other Mother” to empower Vonda to expand her knowledge and skills. She wanted Peewee to bring her love and warmth to others during their times of need. With the encouragement of her “Other Mother”, Vonda pursued and obtained an associate in nursing at Delmar College.

She will always be remembered for her eagerness to help others, her encouragement to enjoy life, and her love of an occasional margarita while spending time with family at the condo. She loved to be outdoors, enjoyed fishing and camping. Vonda’s love of life also displayed itself in her love of gardening and landscaping which gave her a canvas to add her perspective of beauty to the world around her. Her nurturing way encompassed the care of her plants as well. Peewee’s favorite color green was a reminder to her family of the quality of her “thumb”. Her actions will leave many cherished memories in the hearts and minds of those whose lives she touched.

She is preceded in death by her parents Roy and Veda Lee Corman Jr.; her nephew, Justin Wade Corman and her “Other Mother” Mary Helen Pinner and her husband Bill Pinner.

Vonda is survived by her husband Benjamin Miller of Bishop, Texas; daughter, Misty Hernandez (Jason), son, Melville Kim Bailess, Jr. (Deidra) both of Portland, Texas, daughter, Tessa “Shookie” Miller (Damian Martinez) of Kingsville, Texas, stepdaughter, Jessica A. Bailess of Houston, Texas. Her surviving siblings are brother, Roy “Bud” S. Corman III of Three Rivers, Texas; sisters, Tina Williams (Darrell) and Linda Grabbs both of Corpus Christi, Texas; Darlene Sudell (Paul Powell) of Pleasanton, Texas; and 9 grandchildren.
