Judy Ann DeVaughn, 79, a life-long resident of Connersville, went home to be with the Lord Wednesday morning, August 3, 2022 at her residence.
She was born June 1, 1943, the daughter of Willard and Elsie Klein Fox. After graduation from Connersville in 1961, she went to work for the Department of Administration in Indianapolis for a couple years. In 1972, she became employed for Ford Refrigeration and Electronics Company until 1974.
On June 1, 1974, she married Robert “Bobby” DeVaughn in Calvary Baptist Church. Mr. DeVaughn passed away May 16, 2013. In 1975, Judy and Bobby started DeVaughn’s Candies, and they traveled throughout the local area attending fairs and carnivals. For many years, they owned and operated a daily booth at Roberts Park where Judy would make cotton candy. For over ten years, she was a lunch aide at Eastview Elementary School.
Along with her husband, she helped many organizations including making caramel corn and cotton candy for the Salvation Army backyard fair, the Shriners, and Vacation Bible School. For about thirty years during the holiday season, she would help her husband conduct a Christmas party for the clients of Achieva and Residential CRF as well as other needy individuals.
