Kelli Lynne Vaughn was born on April 10th, 1963 in Charleston, West Virginia. At a young age, she had an undeniable sense of adventure and loved to entertain. From the time she was young, her wonderful sense of humor and unconditional love for others stayed true throughout her entire life. Her empathy and unconditional love she showed to her family and friends will never be forgotten and will always be remembered standard to who she was. She was down to earth, humble, and always accepting to anyone who needed advice, comfort or a helping hand. Kelli's love of music was unmatched and she greatly enjoyed live music. After the tragic loss of her eldest daughter, Mallory, her pain and grief would never fully cease. The emotional toll of losing her child had also taken a physical toll on her, as she developed fibromyalgia and arthritis in her hip and was unable to walk without being in constant pain. Nonetheless, she pressed on and continued to care for her mother, Barbara Vaughn, by cooking, cleaning, preparing her medications, and doing anything possible to ensure that her mother felt comfortable.
On the evening of July 3rd, 2017, Kelli passed away unexpectedly soon after being rushed to the hospital, leaving her loved ones heartbroken and shocked. She leaves behind her daughter, Amanda, sister, Cheryl, mother, Barbara, and brother-in-law, Dirk, as well as many others whose lives she touched.
We have created this Go-Fund-Me to ask for help from anyone that is willing. With the passing of Kelli, our family is heartbroken. She did not have life insurance, which makes the cost of the funeral impossible to afford.
We are asking for donations of any amount because every little bit counts, so please consider donating for the sake of the family that she has left behind. The pain that we feel for her loss is now even more overwhelming, now that the expenses far outweigh our funds. Please help us find a sense of peace during this time of hurt and helplessness.
