Carol Louise (Pray) Vaughn, 83, of Louisville, Kentucky went to be with her Lord Jesus October 8, 2019 after a short illness. Carol was born July 29, 1936 in Denver, CO to William Pray and Lavina (Davis) Pray. She is preceded in death by her parents and her daughter Cynthia (Vaughn) Carbajal.

She volunteered for Meals on Wheels while they lived in Lombard, IL and became coordinator for the program for a short time. Carol taught all ages at the churches they were members of while in CO, OK, IL, and SC. She was a willing worker to show Jesus’ love and loved getting to know people. In 2007 Carol and Charles moved to The Plains, OH to be near daughter Connie and her family. They again moved to Louisville, KY in 2015 to be near the Teske family. She attended Fern Creek Christian Church. The family will have a memorial service in the future in Denver, CO.

Although separated by years (15 years difference in our ages) and often separated by miles; Carol was a wonderful, thoughtful, kind and loving cousin. I so appreciated her many prayers for our family and the warm thoughts we received in the cards she sent. I even received a card for my Birthday this year which was two days after she went home to be with the Lord. Carol definitely finished her race well, ministering to and loving her family, as well as so many others.

I have often reflected on the time she came to my rescue as a young girl when I was trying to bake a holiday cake for a special event. My cake totally flopped, but Carol came over and helped me create another one, guiding me through the entire process from start to finish and teaching me so much as we worked together. I treasure the many words of wisdom she shared with me and am looking forward to joining her in our heavenly home.

Our love, blessings and prayers go out to Chuck, Connie and the rest of the family.

Carol was our neighbor. I did not know her well but she was always full of good cheer whenever I spoke with her. My condolences to her husband Chuck and her extended family.
