Maureen “Reenie” Vaughn

August 01, 1965 ‒ November 19, 2018

Delaware, Ohio

Maureen “Reenie” (Andrews) Vaughn born August 1, 1965, passed away and joined all the Angels in Heaven on Monday, November 19, 2018. She will be reunited with her beloved father, Steve Andrews, who preceded her in death, as well as grandparents and aunts and uncles.

For those who knew Reenie, they would agree with the old saying “They just don’t make them like that anymore!” She was such a loving, caring person who would do anything for you if it was in her power. And sometimes, even if it wasn’t! She had a smile that would not quit and a laugh that would make you laugh. To meet Reenie, you either quickly became her friend or she tried to rescue you, as she did with so many dogs and rare birds throughout her life.

Until we all meet again my sweet L’il Sis.

She will be very much missed and survived by her loving mother, Ann Andrews; loving and devoted husband, Steve Vaughn; daughter, Josie Smale; stepson, James (April) Vaughn and children, Scarlet, Jamie, and Helena; stepson, Anthony Vaughn; brothers-in-law, Tom Vaughn and William (Lisa) Vaughn; sister-in-law, Linda (Ralph) Green; brothers, Tom (Pam) Andrews and niece, Devon Andrews and nephew, Ian (Leslie) Andrews and child, Leora May; brother, Ken (Lynda) Andrews and nephew Justin (Tara) Andrews and children, Cole and Wyatt; niece, Jen Andrews and children, Maddy and Ryleigh; brother, Mark (Donna) Andrews and nephew, Mark (Denise) Andrews and children, Carter and Hale; niece Mandy (Steve) Thorpe and many cousins.

A celebration of Reenie’s life will be held on Saturday, December 15, 2018 from 12:00 (noon) to 5:00 pm at the Delaware County Fairgrounds Coliseum, 236 Pennsylvania Ave., Delaware, OH.

The Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center of Delaware is assisting the family.

  • I met Reenie 15 years ago when she interviewed me for a position with Olentangy local schools as a bus driver. I knew at the very moment that I sat down at her desk that I had just met a friend for life! I have so many good memories of Reenie in the 15 years that I knew her, I will be forever grateful for her friendship and for her leadership! For now, I will only say until we meet again, much love and prayers to her husband and children and extended family may God bless you all with peace that surpasses all understanding.

  • Reenie was my very first Boss for 3 years when I worked at PaPa T’s when her parents owned & she managed it. I loved working there…Reenie & Mr & Mrs A. treated me like family. Reenie always, always treated me like gold. I will never forget my times there with her. The sweetest person BUT don’t make her mad (ha ha). Loved her & praying for the family. ~Verna DiPietro (Smith).

  • I had the pleasure of working with Reenie one summer. She had a way of making you feel special with her smile and contagious laugh! I will miss her.

  • Steve, Josie,Ken, Tom and Mark , we are sorry about the loss of your wife, mother and sister. Will always remember her great laugh and also her multi colored beautiful birds. So glad we had the time to know her.

  • My thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this difficult time. Reenie was one of my favorite people. She was my very first boss at papa T’s when I was a teenager in high school. I loved working there with her and Mr. and Mrs. A. Alot of great memories. So sorry for your loss.

  • Our condolences to all who loved her. She and her husband have been neighbors of ours for 13 years.

  • I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Reenie’s passing a short while ago. Even though I was not close friends with Reenie, she always made me feel that way every time we corresponded on Facebook or when I saw her. While she worked at Olentangy, she occasionally stopped in my office. I always enjoyed seeing her bc she would honestly cheer up the place just by her presence. Yes, her laugh – I can still hear it and loved it. Even though it would embarrass me at the time, she would always say that my looks reminded her of a country singer (Ha!) and called me a Foxy Lady, as I’m sure she told others. Reenie just had a way of making a person feel good and cheering the day up. So happy that we recently had a conversation and will always remember Reenie for those times and her constant hilarious posts on Facebook. Reenie was a joy to work with. I wish the family much love and comfort while sharing great memories of life with Reenie. You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers. Matthew 5:4

  • My thoughts and prayers go out to Reenie’s family and friends. I remember seeing Reenie everyday when I went out to the bus garage at Shanahan years ago. Such a wonderful person! Rest well my friend.

  • Steve, We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family. We will always remember Reenie with a big smile & a great sense of humor. 🙏🏻❤️

  • Mrs. Ann Andrews and Family,

    Paul and I were shocked and stunned to hear the passing of your daughter, Reenie. It has been said that a parent should not have to bury a child and we can’t even begin to imagine you and your families’ loss.

    Do know that we love and support you always — especially at this very difficult and trying time. In God’s love and mercy — know He will never abandon you.

    Paul & Diane Glidden

  • Ann, Steve & Josie,
    Bryan and I would like to send our sincere condolence to you on Reenies passing.
    You are in our thoughts & prayers in this difficult time.

  • Reenie you were a favorite ‘sister’; family dinners will never be the same without you, your desserts, greens and most of all our long standing elephant story. Heaven is rolling in laughter like only you can stir. Love you!
