Mrs. Vaughn, 89, of Bogue Chitto, Mississippi, passed from this life on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020, at home with her loving family by her side. She was born on Dec. 20, 1930, in Clay City, Illinois, to Lester Long and Viola Fulk Bailey. She was a member of Montgomery Baptist Church, where she served for many years as a Sunday School teacher and a Mission Friends leader, and was active in the church senior citizen’s group; served as the leader of the Brownie and Girls Scout troops where she took the girls camping and many other fun activities; worked several jobs over the years and in retirement became a homemaker; and enjoyed crafting, painting, sewing, and cooking — she was known for her delicious pecan and apple pies. She had a great sense of humor, loved to joke and had a quick wit about her that entertained her family and friends with her contagious smile. But her greatest joy was her family where she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother and friend.

Preceding her in death were her parents; husband, J C Vaughn; and siblings, Dona Gaye Roberts and Patricia Ann Hill.
