On Friday, May 15th, 2020, Doris Weatherspoon Vaughn, 99, passed away at Rex Rehab and Nursing Center in Apex, North Carolina. This beautiful, gracious, giving lady, lovingly known to all who knew her as “Boss,” joined her Savior to live with him in a glorious home he prepared for her for all of eternity. Our sweet Boss will forever be cherished as a role model, loving wife, protective mother, fun grandmother and great grandmother, generous friend and strong Christian soldier for God.
