Feb. 28, 1916 - April 29, 2013
Elona was born to Peter Van Sickle and Lavina Beuhanon Van Sickle in Genoa, NV on the ranch her grandfather established as one of the first pioneers in the Carson Valley.
She was preceded in death by her husband, John; sister, Katherine Etchart, and her parents.
Elona is survived by her brother, Ellis Van Sickle of CA; her two children, Janet (Bob) Butterfield and David (Sharon) Lynch; six grandchildren, John Vogt, Steve Vogt, Wendy Tuttle, Renee Russell, Sherene Finnell and Daron Lynch; and 17 great grandchildren.
She had a wonderful faith in God and put Him first in her life always. She taught us to do the same and we will be forever thankful.
She will be greatly missed by her family and others.
