2nd Timothy 4:7:
“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
Sadie Mae Jenkins Vaughn, 84, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, August 7, 2023.
A native of Screven County, Ga., she was born March 22, 1939 to the late Daniel Triggs Jenkins and Jessie Elizabeth Jenkins. She was also preceded in death by brothers, Joe and John Jenkins.
Sadie attended Screven County High School and Snead College.
She leaves us to be reunited with her loving husband of 54 years, Ray Bennie Vaughn. Married in 1958, they made their home in Elizabethton, Tenn., where they raised their three boys. They were both devoted members of Stoney Creek Church of Christ.
Sadie worked alongside her husband at Coleman’s Studio as well as Olan Mills. An artist at heart, she often used her talents to retouch and restore photographs. She also had a great interest in genealogy and had traced her ancestry back many generations. Her love of flowers and plants was evident as she was an avid gardener.

Also many beloved friends and family in Georgia and at home.
