Yvonne (Vonnie) M. Tofstad, 58, of Auburn,

Washington passed away peacefully at home on

September 6th, 2020 a er a valiant 16-month battle

with the wicked disease we know as cancer.

Born July 27th, 1962 in Tacoma, Washington to

Paulette Sloan and Jerry Lundberg, Vonnie is survived

by her parents; her step-father, Fred Sloan; her

husband, Dave Tofstad; daughters, Paulette Dunbar

and Danielle Tofstad; step-son, Greg Tofstad; sisters,

Suzette Lundberg, Melissa and Felecia Hanson; and

step-sisters, Terri and Carmen Sloan. Also a multitude

of aunts, uncles, cousins, grandchildren, nieces and

nephews. She was preceded in death by her brother,

Jonathan Lundberg.

A devoted wife, mother, daughter, and sister, she

lived and breathed the motto “there’s no place like

home.” Her haven and her sanctuary, Vonnie took

great pride in keeping her home immaculate, caring

for loved ones, and cooking incredibly tasty meals for

family. Her anksgiving dinners were second to none.

Unknowingly, she became the family hub. Vonnie was

always there for guidance, direction and information

for family and friends. She had a memory like no other.

A giving soul that never thought twice about giving the

shirt o her back to anyone in need. Vonnie very much

enjoyed gaming and reading in her spare time.

Our girl, without a doubt, was some kind of special!

Forever, and ever, in our hearts…
