Mary was born Jan. 14, 1926 in Hico where she lived with her family on a small farm. She always had very fond memories of their lives there. She graduated from high school in Clariette and then moved to Stephenville.
Mary married Cecil Vaughn on March 9, 1950 in Stephenville. Mary worked in insurance offices in Stephenville for more than 30 years and then opened her own insurance office, Vaughn Insurance Agency, and worked for several more years.
Mary’s treasure was her family. They knew she was always there for them and was ready to do whatever was needed for them. It was also very important to her that she helped anyone that had a need.
Her family all remember delivering food that she had prepared to friends and neighbors and her working in the background of the church. She would wash dishes at church activities, work in the nursery and help teach children in Sunday school.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Cecil Vaughn; parents, Lela Mae and W.B. Walker; sister, Orpha Dell Barnes; and two brothers, W.B. Walker and Neil Walker.
Mary is survived by her two daughters, Vickie Siebman and husband, Dwight; Patti Russell and husband Grady; four grandchildren, Cody Simmons and wife Maggie, Clay Simmons and wife Nicole, Corrie Siebman and husband Ricky, and Wade Siebman and wife Amanda; nine great grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Should friends desire, memorials maybe made to the missions fund or the building fund at the First Baptist Church in Bowie.
