Vonda Sharon Helsley

August 27, 1935 — April 21, 2024


Vonda Sharon Helsley began her journey in this life in 1935 on a farm in Castleford, Idaho. Born to Aaron and Nora Gonterman, along with 2 brothers, Lyle and Lloyd, and 2 sisters, Lillian and Carol, she was the middle child. Working on the family farm, Vonda learned the importance of hard work and cultivated a love of the outdoors. 

At the age of 18, she married Richard Helsley and they embarked on their own adventures working on a ranch near the Idaho/Nevada border. In the 1970s, they settled in Jerome, Idaho, and started a family. Going back to her roots in farming, Vonda raised vegetable and flower gardens, as well as 2 children, Rhonda and Nathan. 

As time went on, she became a grandmother to Chase, Devon, Bailey, and Cameron Helsley and great-grandmother to Amaura and Eloah.

On April 21, 2024, Vonda left this life to begin a new adventure. In accordance with her wishes, no service will be held, but the family encourages all who knew her to celebrate her memory in their own way.

Memories and condolences may be shared with the family on Vonda’s memorial webpage at
