Obituary for Penny A Vaughn (Platt)

Penny A Vaughn (Platt)
Penny A. Vaughn, age 61, of Rome, passed away peacefully on March 26, 2018, at the Colonial Park Nursing Home.

Penny was born in Rome on December 26, 1956 to the late Kenneth and Marguerite Moyer Platt, and was educated in the Rome schools. On September 22, 1984, she was united in marriage to Richard A. Vaughn; a blessed union of 24 years until his passing on May 15, 2008.

Penny was a kind and loving soul, caring for many children as if they were her own. She loved her family and friends, enjoyed doing crafts, and drinking coffee, which was the fuel that kept her going.

Penny is survived by two daughters, Orerisa (Steve Rathbun) Vanderworken of Blossvale, and Natasha (Michael Addison) Cowling of Rome; a son, Dakota Vaughn; stepchildren, Teresa Vaughn, Concetta (Rexford) French, and Gary (Kim Cassidy) Vaughn all of Rome, and Francis (Bobby French) Blanchard of FL; grandchildren, Gary Jr., Randy, Julius Jr., Stacey, Lacey, Dakota, Ashley, Bradley, Jenna, Joshua, Josey, Angeleanna, Zackerhia, Lilyanna, and Alejandro; great grandchildren, Julius III, Layla, Willow, Daniel, Riley, and Aiden; former in-laws whom she still loved, Anthony Cowling, Joshua Vanderworken Sr., and Gina Vaughn; five sisters, Carlene Britton, Cynthia (Richard) Deraway, Melodie (Daniel) Deal, Bonnie Platt, and Deborah (Donald Roland) Bentley; two brothers, Daniel Platt, and Kenneth Jr. (Roxanne Chapple) Platt; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased a nephew, Dustin Platt; and two nieces, Darci and Destinie Deraway.

The family would like to thank Megan at Rome Hospital’s ICU and the staff at Colonial Park for their care and compassion shown to Penny during her illness. Also, a special thank you to her niece, Dyphma, whom she referred to as fenner-beaner, who went above and beyond in every way possible with helping care for Penny.

Penny’s funeral will be held on Thursday at 6 PM at the Barry Funeral Home, 807 W. Chestnut Street. Burial will be in St. Patrick’s Cemetery in the spring.

Relatives and friends may call at the funeral home from 4 to 6 PM prior to the funeral.
