Obituary for Gilbert C. Vaughn

Gilbert C. Vaughn of Kansas, IL went home to be with the Lord on Friday, May 27, 2016 at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, IN.

Gilbert was born August 3, 1927 in Golconda, IL to Forrest and Vola (Riley) Vaughn. He married Lorene Johnson on September 27, 1980; she survives.

He is also survived by five children: Faith (Sam) Carr of Oakland, IL, Linda (Larry) Holeman of Litchfield, KY, Donna (Mike) Forsyth of Mt. Home, AR, Cindy (Richard) Nowarita of Chrisman, IL; and Allyn (Rose) Schneider of Ft. Myers, FL; seven grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; four brothers: Billy (Charlolette) Vaughn of Silver Springs, FL, Bobby Ferrell of Mt. Vernon, IN, Charlie (Pam) Ferrell of Sturgis, KY, and Jr. (Shirley) Ferrell of Sturgis, KY; one sister: Doris (Gordan) Prince of Morganfield, KY; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by one daughter.

Gilbert retired from the Murdock Coal Mine in 1981, then helped his wife operate their own trucking business until 2007. He took great pride in gardening and would supply the neighbors with produce. He loved Southern Gospel and bluegrass music. It didn’t matter what time of the year it was; his favorite song was “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem.” He was a member of God’s Mission of Faith Church in Redmon, IL.

Gilbert fought a hard, painful battle with mouth cancer over the past year, but is now out of pain and misery as he is at home in Jesus’ arms. He will be greatly missed by his wife, his family, and all who knew him.

Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. at Krabel Funeral Home in Oakland, IL. Visitation will be held for two hours prior to the service, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Burial will follow in Embarrass Cemetery. For those who wish, memorials may be made to the family to offset final expenses.
