A funeral service celebrating the life of Juanita Jordan-Vaughn will be held Monday March 19, 2018 at noon at the Elizabeth Missionary Baptist Church. Ms. Vaughn passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at Hospice of the Valley.
Juanita was born July 30, 1933, in Youngstown, a daughter of Milton and Classie Edwards Jordan.
She was a 1951 graduate of East High School and was a former member of the New Hope Baptist Church. She attended the Elizabeth Missionary Baptist Church and she loved to cook. She often spent her time entertaining and sharing her love for cooking with family, friends, and anyone in need. She often said, “they don’t have anything,” and was always willing to share her limited resources. She enjoyed working crossword puzzles, and was a political analyst, sharing her views with anyone that would listen.
She leaves to cherish her beloved memory, her companion of 60 years, James Brown; three sons, Jeff Vaughn, Chris (Christine) Jordan, and Vincent (Sandra), all of Youngstown; 14 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; one niece, Dewanyer Lockett of Jacksonville, Fla.; two nephews, Cornell and Michael Lane of Jacksonville, six great-nephews; six great-nieces; nine great-great-nieces; 18 great-great-nephews; three great-great-great-nieces; two great-great-great-nephews, and a host of cousins and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; one daughter, Gail Vaughn; an infant son; six sisters and their spouses, Ida Bell “Dessie” (Eugene/Perry) Pearson-Lane, Johnnie Mae “Peachie” (Walter) Heard, Melvina (James) Walker, Grace (Joseph) Davis, Christine (Grover) Paige and Joyce Vickers; two brothers, Ceasar “Buddy” and Leonard Jordan; two nieces; five nephews; one great-nephew; and one great-great-nephew.
The family will receive friends Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m. at the J.E. Washington Funeral Home and on Monday from 11:30 a.m. until noon at the church.
