Gretchen and family...Sad to read of Vaughan's passing. We are in Tennessee and cannot be there to give you a hug. I am a lucky person to have had a friendship with your Mom. When we were still living in Winchester I believe I last saw her at SVWC while I was working. She was there with a group to play bridge. Loved her humor. Keep those happy memories with you always. With great sorrow....Susie and Denny

Like my cousins, I have such great memories of the family getting together at the in-town house and the lake. I can still visualize the twinkle in Aunt Vaughan's eyes as she would make a zinger of a comment and then tap her fingers together.... and I can still her voice say Russell! Gretchen! And Gretchen's reply..."Yes ma'am." Gretchen, you and your family are in are hearts and prayers.

I re-connected with Aunt Vaughan when I retuned to this area in 01' with my son after almost forty years away. I too fondly re-call days as a youth on the dock at Lake St. Clair fishing, riding the paddle boats, and later with my Dad and my kids, when Aunt Vaughan so kindly allowed us to use the old cottage.The last time I spoke to Aunt Vaughan was in the Summer of 14', when I ran into her with her son-in-law Kieth in Costco just before Independence Day. She in fact recognized me first and we discussed her visit with my mother and she inquired about my son. Aunt Vaughan always was up-beat and displayed good humor, even when she did not feel very humorous. She will be missed.

I have so many childhood memories of visiting family in Winchester. No trip was complete without a visit to Aunt Vaughan and Uncle Russell--both in town and at the lake house. I will always picture Aunt Vaughan tapping her fingertips together with a bourbon and water at her side.

Vaughan was such an inspiration to those who knew her. I am so glad I was able to meet her over 30 years ago and see how to live life to its fullest. She will be greatly missed and was loved by many. I'm sorry I can't be with you tomorrow but you are in my thoughts and prayers. Barb Eaton

Ms. Newcome was a Southern Lady of the best sort. She loved life and lived it to the fullest. We will miss her terribly.

I have many fond memories of childhood weekends at the lake house with Vaughan and Russell and the fabulous meals that would follow. "Aunt Vaughan" taught me that life is a serious endeavor but you need to have some fun with the journey.
