Billie Clark Vaughn

January 18, 1934 — July 23, 2023

Danielsville

Billie Vaughn, age 89, passed away at her home on July 23, 2023. She was born Billie Sue Clark in Apple Valley, GA on January 18, 1934 to Theodore and Mary Lee Clark. In addition to her parents, Mrs. Vaughn was preceded in death by her husband of forty-two years, Rev. Albert Vaughn and her beloved sister, Evelyn Fouche.

Billie began a lifelong obsession with medicine when she started working at St. Mary’s Hospital at the age of 17. She longed to be a nurse, and this dream took her to Emory Hospital in Atlanta, where she worked and took courses whenever possible. Her dedication to family brought her back to Athens, GA where she worked in the hospitals and doctor’s offices in different capacities. One of Billie’s prized possessions was her “Merck Manual of Medical Information”, given to her by her sister, Shirley. Billie could use it to diagnose most any ailment and soon earned the nickname, “Dr. Billie”.

On August 30, 1969, Billie married Albert Vaughn. She soon found herself a pastor’s wife and faithfully helped Albert in his service to Antioch Baptist Church in Stephens, GA and later at Providence Baptist Church in Pocataligo, GA. Billie served as a Sunday School teacher and on many committees. One of her favorite means of service was the “Extension Committee”, a group that took reading material and recordings of church services to the elderly in the community.

Billie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Lorie and Jerry Skelton of Ila; granddaughters, Heather (Mike) Nations of Athens, Merry (Ari) Skelton-Weiss of Statesboro, Abigail Skelton and Lydia Skelton both of Ila; Aubrie Fouche of Athens; a sister, Shirley Fouche of Athens; many beloved nieces, nephews and cousins.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, July 26, 2023 from 1:00 until 3:00 pm at the funeral home. Funeral services will follow at 3:00 in the chapel. Interment will follow the service in the Providence Baptist Church Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Providence Baptist Church, PO Box 529, Ila, GA.
