Memorial service for Michelle (Dees) Vaughn, 46, of Fletcher will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 11, 2019, at the Fletcher First Baptist Church.

Michelle was born Oct. 12, 1972, in Lawton, to Marvin Dees and Reva Henry.

She lived most of her life in Oklahoma, with the exception of a few years in Albuquerque, N.M., where she gave birth to her son, Mitchell Lloyd Marohn.

Upon her return home, she met and fell in love with two beautiful young girls, Trinity, and Kaylee Hatchett, whom she later came to adopt. Soon after, she met and married the love of her life, Richard (Rick) Vaughn, who, like her, also brought three amazing children with him into their union, Jimmy, Jessica, and Jaylee Vaughn.

The most recent additions, however, were her most valuable treasures - the arrival of her amazing granddaughters, Caroline Marohn and Sage Leiker.

Michelle is survived by her husband, Rick Vaughn; two sons: Mitchell Marohn and Jimmy Vaughn; four daughters: Jessica Leiker, Trinity, and Kaylee Hatchett and Jaylee Vaughn;

Two granddaughters: Caroline Marohn and Sage Leiker; her father, Marvin Dees; her siblings: Daniel and Lisa Reid, Tracy Guzman, and David and Amie Bianchini; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Reva Henry, and her nephew, Zachery Bianchini.
