Robin Duvall Vaughn, 48

OWENSBORO, Ky. - Robin Duvall Vaughn, 48, passed away Monday, March 3, 2014 at the Heartford House Hospice Center in Owensboro. She passed away with the same beauty and grace that she exhibited throughout her life. Born on October 3, 1965 in Greenville, Ky, she was the first child of Jim and Edna Wilkerson Duvall.

Robin was a graduate of Owensboro High School and Henderson Community College where she received her Associates Degree in Nursing, allowing her to pursue her life’s calling. Her nursing career began at Owensboro Mercy Hospital where she touched the lives of countless patients who found her to be an angel in their time of need. She became a manager at Owensboro Heart and Vascular for several years. Returning to her passion for patient care, she accepted a position at Owensboro Medical Health System where she became manager of the Cardiac Step-down Unit. Before her illness forced her retirement, she was named Director of Patient Experience. During her career, she received several awards for nursing, none more valuable than the thousands of people who remember her genuine kindness and caring during their most difficult hours. She was truly an angel of mercy and brought comfort to countless strangers. Robin’s caring was never restricted to the confines of the hospital, but was extended to family, friends, and strangers on the side of the road: she truly made a difference in the world.

Robin was preceded in death by grandparents, Edward and Margaret Wilkerson, Charles Duvall, and Harold and Margaret Vincent as well as beloved Uncle James Westerfield. What a reunion they must be having.

In addition to her parents, Robin is survived by her beloved husband and best friend, Rex Vaughn of Owensboro, who joined her in battle and offered her the strength and love to move forward with so much grace and dignity.

Additionally, she is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, Scottie and Amber Sheriff, Landon and Helen Sheriff, and daughter, Alex Sheriff, two brothers, Jamie Duvall and wife Lisa, and Ben Duvall, two grandchildren, Robin Elise Sheriff and Benjamin James Sheriff, the lights of her life. Also surviving are nephews and niece, Zackary, Reece, Brian, and Hadley Duvall,, and Treg Wilke, Aunts and Uncles, Janice Westerfield, Donna and Keith Smith, Melissa and Barry Bruce, Carol Taylor, Mother and Father-in-law, William and Jane Vaughn, and her lifelong best friend and confidante, Debbie Galloway.

Services will be 12 Noon Friday, March 7, at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Burial will follow in Owensboro Memorial Gardens. Visitation will be from 12:00-8:00 p.m. Thursday and after 10:00 a.m. Friday at the funeral home.
