Obituary

Vaughn A. Vekony, 87, long time resident of Clifton, NJ, died on Friday, June 25, 2021.

 

Born on July 4, 1933 in Garfield, NJ, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Anastasia (Yachechak) Vekony and sister of the late Robert Vekony.

 

After graduating with her bachelors from New York University, Vaughn enjoyed a long career in public relations. Early in her career, she worked for the former Sabena Airlines. Her position gave her the opportunity to travel. At the time of her retirement, she worked for Reichman Frankle. 

 

Vaughn was an avid traveler and enjoyed many excursions around the world. She enjoyed taking a cruise with her mother and traveling with family and friends. Spending time at the Jersey shore was always a Summer highlight for her.

 

The friendships that she made during her career and other areas of her life were important to her, and she maintained them for many years. She enjoyed having a birthday on July 4th. She said that the holiday meant that her friends wouldn’t have to work that day and could share her celebration with her.

 

Vaughn loved spending time with family. Holidays spent with her extended family always included the cooking skills of her mother and aunts and tales of the older generations. Each holiday, she searched until she found the perfect gifts and would wrap them with professional level skill.

 

She will be very much missed by those who loved her.
