Christene Debra Toney Vaughan, age 64 of Shelby, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, July 20, 2020.
She is survived by her children, Jennifer Norman (Tim) of Blacksburg, SC, Charles “Chuck” Vaughan Jr. (Crystal) of Shelby, NC, and Brian Vaughan (Melissa) of Shelby, NC, ten grandchildren, Keith Norman, T.J. (Amber) Norman, Brittany (Jon) Spreadbury, Josh Norman, Aryana Vaughan, Alayna Vaughan, Arabella Vaughan, Aidan Vaughan, Cassidy Vaughan, and Livia Ruppe, four great grandchildren, Kenzi Norman, Zane Spreadbury, Zayleigh Spreadbury, and Kamdyn Vaughan, a sister, Susan, three brothers, Ricky, Butch, and Robert (Sherry), her loving brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Everett and Linda Vaughan, numerous nieces and nephews, and her special friends, Sharon and John Dyer, Melissa Cooper, and Gheri Burris.
Born April 16, 1956 in Richmond VA, Christene was the oldest daughter of the late Garnett and Christine Yancey Toney and was preceded in death by her loving husband, Charles Cavalier Vaughan, and a sister, Donna.
Christene passed away after a hard-fought battle with breast cancer. To her children, she was the epitome of strength and bravery. Christene, or “Tiy” as many have known her by, was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She adored her family and had an amazing zeal for life. Her passion was nursing; she went above and beyond caring for all her patients at Hospice. She enjoyed reading and walking on the beach, family dinners, and watching her true crime shows. Tiy will be truly missed by all that knew her.
A Celebration of Life will be held 6:00 pm Thursday, July 23, 2020 at Cleveland Funeral Services conducted by Pastor Everett Vaughan. A visitation will be held from 4:00 – 6:00 pm prior to the service at the funeral home.
