Evelyn Mae Vaughn, 89 passed away on November 7, 2013 in Visalia, California. She was born on November 2, 1924 to Hallie and Rita Coffman. She was born at home in a small farming community outside of Laton, California. She lived in the community her entire life. Evelyn was a member of the Laton Church of the Brethren, where she served as a Deacon, Sunday School Teacher, Fellowship Hostess, and a Piano Player. She had the opportunity to travel and one her more memorable trips, was to Germany where she had the privilege of attending Oberammergau. Evelyn's life passions were her love of flowers, cats, cooking, family get-togethers and playing Rook. Her mother was an excellent cook and passed her culinary skills to her daughter. When you went to Grandma's house for dinner, you could expect some good "home cooking." She was a woman who loved the Lord. Even in her past few weeks she would comment on how blessed she was! Evelyn and her husband; Leland grew up near each other, attended the same church and Laton High School, where she played tennis and were married on November 24, 1945. After high school she attended Beauty College.
