Elizabeth was born November 6, 1932 on a farm just west of Carey, Ohio. She graduated as valedictorian from Carey High School in 1950 and went on to earn a degree in Medical Technology from Capital University in 1954. On December 19 of that same year, she married Richard Vaughn of Defiance, Ohio and they settled in Columbus, Ohio where they raised their family. She was a long-time member of Ascension Lutheran Church in Columbus and, through the years, served with Capital University Women’s Alumnae Chapter (CUAC), the Women’s Auxiliary of the Franklin County Ohio Society of Professional Engineers, and the COSI Women’s Association. She was also a member of The McCoy Pottery Collector’s Society. Her hobby of collecting these Ohio-made potteries expanded into other antiques and collectibles and eventually led to the creation of an antique business which she owned and operated for many years.
