Lillian Marie Vaughn Weston, 89, Russell County, KY

Lillian Marie Vaughn Weston, 89, of Jamestown, passed peacefully from this life, surrounded by family, on Thursday February 2, 2023.

After her graduation from Russell Springs High School, she attended Bowling Green Business School where she earned her degree in bookkeeping. She and husband Hubert were married in November of 1954, and had two children, Mark and Maria.

She had a fulfilling career with the Lake Cumberland Area Development District, retiring in 1994. Much of her time after retirement was spent volunteering with a variety of organizations, including the Aging Council, Hospice of Lake Cumberland, and Russell County Hospital Auxiliary.

She devoted her life to her family and The Jamestown United Methodist Church. She had many roles within the church, ranging from Sunday School Teacher to pianist to treasurer.

Her commitment to the church was more than volunteering, though, as she considered the congregation to be her extended family.

Lillian was born in Jamestown, KY September 7, 1933, to W.L. and Maggie Wooldridge Vaughn. She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Hubert Weston, her infant sister Lucille, and brother William (Bill) Vaughan.

She is survived by two children, Mark Weston, (Kim) of Jamestown, KY, Maria Welch (Paul) of Hawthorne Woods, IL, four grandchildren Eric Weston (Mandy) of Columbia, KY, Erin Blasko (Mark) of Jamestown, KY, Rachel Ratos (Tommy) of Geneva, IL, and John Welch of Denver, CO. Three great grandsons Avery and Layne Weston, and Colin Ratos also survive.

Funeral Services will be Monday February 6, 2023, 11amCT at the Jamestown United Methodist Church with Bro. Barry Bradshaw officiating.

Friends may visit 5-8 on Sunday February 5th, and Monday February 6th after 8am till time of service at the Jamestown United Methodist Church in Jamestown, KY

Eastern Star Service will be Sunday February 5th, 7pm at the church by the Russell Chapter of OES # 432.

Family requests that memorial donations be made to Hospice of Lake Cumberland and can be made at the church.
