Renee Vaughn of Orange passed away Feb. 6. Renee was 55 years old. She was born May 26, 1960 in Springhill, La., to Buddy and O’Clair Vaughn.
Renee was a 1978 graduate of Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School and a 1983 graduate of McNeese State University. She worked the majority of her life as a buyer and purchasing agent, most recently at Axial in West Lake, La. She was an expert seamstress, an outdoors enthusiast and a devoted member of Faith United Methodist Church. Most of all, she was a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, Mama G and friend who found great joy in spending time with her children and grandchildren, making a huge pot of gumbo and competing in a fierce game of “Clue” (most likely cheating her way to victory).
Renee is survived by her children, Jennifer Grady and partner Rita Gonsoulin of Orange, Devin Grady and partner Kayla McQueen of Conroe, Aaron Grady and wife Kelly of San Antonio and Garrett Grady and partner Douglas Aydelotte of San Marcos; grandchildren, Tristan Grady of Bellville, Erin Grady of Orange and Scott Grady of Huntsville; sisters Frances Thompson and husband Cornel, Pam Cox and husband Ronnie and Cathy Hoffpauir and husband Stacy; brother Tommy Vaughn and parents Buddy and O’Clair Vaughn, all of Orange County.
