Lula “Mae” (Adams) Vaughn

Lula “Mae” (Adams) Vaughn, age 79, of Batesville, passed away on Sunday, January 14, 2018, at UC Hospital in Cincinnati, surrounded by her family. She was born a coal miner’s daughter on October 1, 1938 in Whitesburg, Kentucky. Mae spent her childhood growing up with her brothers and sisters in the mountains of Kentucky. When she was 17, her family uprooted and moved to Sunman where they made their new home.

Mae worked early on for the Batesville Casket Company. However, life quickly changed when her brother, Bill, introduced her to a young man from Hamilton, Ohio. Fresh out of the military, Donald Vaughn and she began a courtship and were united in marriage on October 22, 1960. Their three children became her focus and it wasn’t until they were older that she returned to work for over fifteen years at the Dryerhaus Nursing Home in Batesville. The Vaughn’s established their home outside of Batesville in 1964, spending their life together until Don’s passing in 2006. Some of her greatest enjoyments were sewing and watching whatever TV show Steve Harvey was involved with along with Pastor Joel Osteen. But Mae’s greatest love was her family and she always enjoyed being in their company.

Mae was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Donald; son, Albert Steve; sister, Sue Trent; along with brothers, Albert Jr., Ed, Harlan and Woody. She is survived by daughters: Jenny Lee (Mike) Reynolds of New Point and Debra (Kevin) Murrish of Batesville. Also surviving is sister, Virginia Moore of Millhousen and brothers, Floyd (Debbie), Ben (Debbie) and Kenny (Marcia) all of Batesville, and Bill of Florida, along with four grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
