Evansville, IN – Marilou Elizabeth Vaughan, 80, of Evansville, Indiana went home to be with her Lord and Saviour on October 10, 2018 at Deaconess Gateway Newburgh, Indiana.
She was born in Evansville December 28, 1937 to the late Howard Martin and Virginia Emily (Lockyear) Nicholson. Marilou went to the Millersburg School where she met her high school sweetheart, Jerry. They were married by the Justice of the Peace on August 17, 1956.

She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and precious friend to many. Marilou was saved by her Lord and Saviour on July 6, 2018 by Dawn’s good friend Vickie Bishop.
