Obituary for Florine P. Vaughn

November 24, 1920 - December 31, 2018
Boerne, Texas | Age 98


On Monday, December 31, 2018, Florine Parker Vaughn passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus at the age of 98, joining her husband of 38 years, Carroll Lee Vaughn, who preceded her in death in 1986. Her son, Raymond Vaughn, also preceded her in death in 2004 and her son George's first wife of 38 years, Carol Holland Vaughn, in 2008.

Florine, or Grandnannie as her family called her, was born on a farm near Falco, Alabama to her parents, James M. and Minnie Stokes Parker on November 24, 1920. She was the youngest and last surviving member of six children. Florine attended Sidney Lanier High School in Montgomery, Alabama and graduated in 1941 from Troy State Teachers College. She was married to Carroll Lee Vaughn on May 15, 1948 and moved first to Austin, Texas where her two sons were born and then resided in El Paso for 39 years. She then lived 9 years in Lubbock and the last 18 years in San Antonio. She was a retired elementary school teacher, teaching both in Alabama and Texas.

She was a member of the Oak Hills Church attending the Mountain Climbers class. Florine was known for her outgoing and friendly smile, being able to quickly make friends. She was always devoted to her family, friends, and church. Having grown up with 4 older brothers, she was a great fan of sports, especially enjoying watching college football games and the San Antonio Spurs. Her later years were marked by blindness due to macular degeneration, but still enjoyed hearing the football scores every Sunday.

Florine is survived by her son, George P. Vaughn and daughter-in-law Carolyn H. Vaughn; grandson, Greg P. Vaughn, wife Summer, their three children, Cole, Brittan and Carsen of Seguin; granddaughter, Shelly Vaughn and her son, Cade Barone of Boerne. She is also survived by grandson, Bryan C. Vaughn, wife, Hilary and son, Jack of Boise, Idaho and granddaughter, Katy Nail of Austin.

The family wishes to thank Florine's care givers Miriam Foster, Kay Kennedy, Betty and Andy Moghina and their sweet dog Ginger for their love and kindness to Florine.

A graveside memorial service will be held at the San Marcos City Cemetery on Saturday, January 5, 2019 at 11:00 a.m.
