Virginia Lee Paul Vaught, age 92, of Richardson, Texas, passed from this life on March 1, 2021.

A private family burial will be held on Friday, March 5, 2021 at the Dallas-Ft. Worth National Cemetery, 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, TX. A celebration of her life is being planned for Saturday, July 10, 2021 at the Waterview Church of Christ in Richardson, TX.

Virginia was born on July 6, 1928 in Edna, Texas to Jesse William and Annie Harrington Paul. She graduated from Patty Welder High School in Victoria, Texas. After attending Abilene Christian College for one year, she went on to graduate from the University of Texas.

In 1950 she married William "Bill" Edward Vaught and lived in Dallas, Guam, Sweetwater, and Austin before settling in Richardson. Virginia lived in that area the remainder of her life.
Virginia and Bill had five daughters. She spent her time as a wife and mother and as an active member of the Waterview Church of Christ. She was involved in PTA, CPA Wives, Dallas Prayer Ministry, and Lifeline Chaplaincy. Virginia had a heart for those who were hurting, and for several years, she and Bill kept foster children in their home. Virginia helped with a ministry to women recovering from alcoholism and helped start a "Feeding the Homeless" ministry for people who lived on the streets of downtown Dallas. Volunteering in the early days of what eventually became City Square and teaching in Bible teacher trainings at Abilene Christian and Harding Universities were welcomed as opportunities to serve others.
Virginia loved the Lord and invested much of her time in women, both young and old, discipling them in a closer walk with God through study of His Word. For several years, she also taught fourth and fifth grade girls in a Friday afternoon Bible class known as the Christian Girl Class.

She is survived by her daughters: Paula Chance of San Antonio, and husband Gary; Vanette Hutcheson of Rowlett, and husband Steve; Susan Clark of Abilene, and husband Jim; Tami Weaver of Keller, and husband Jim; and Kim Hancock of San Antonio, and husband Paul. She leaves behind thirteen grandchildren, sixteen great-grandchildren and many extended family members and loved ones.

Virginia was preceded in death by her husband, parents, sister and brother. She was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.

In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes can be made to Lifeline Chaplaincy, 6300 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas, TX 75235; FaithWorks of Abilene, 1229 N. Mockingbird Ln., Abilene, TX 79603; and Haven for Hope, 1 Haven for Hope Way, San Antonio, TX 78207.

Virginia was the epitome of a gracious godly woman. I remember being enthralled with her knowledge of the Word and how she carried herself in her walk. Tami and the rest of the family, my thoughts and prayers are with you as I know this is a great loss. Peggy Hoshall

One of the things that strike me most about the impact my "Aunt DeDe" had on me is that she created a place of welcome and love for everyone who was around her. Twice in my life, once as a child and again as an adult, she offered her home as a place of warmth and light during times of cold darkness. I know that she has awakened at the ultimate table of welcome and is being invited to come and sit and feel the love, just as she so often did for others.

Virginia was one of the first people I met when first moving to Richardson Texas and attending Waterview Church of Christ. She became a close friend and mentor to me at an early age and she and I worked together with mothers of young children’s class for several years. She was one of the most spiritual women that I knew and in the absence of my own mother, she was truly one of the most loving and caring women that I ever came in contact with. Rest In Peace my precious friend❤️

Virginia was so special to so many especially we girls in the Christian Girl class. We all loved her and learned so much from her about living a life of service to our God. My love to all the family.

My Aunt DeDe was a teenager when I was born, and she was a mentor to me as a wife, mother, BibleStudy partner, and as a Christian! May you as a family who are her legacy enjoy sharing memories while you eat, laugh, and live to glorify the Our Abba Father, HonorJesus our Blessed Redeemer, and acknowledge The Holy Spirit as our Guide until we all have the best Family Reunion in heaven! May God comfort and bless each family member! Love, Beth Wade
