Kimberly Vaught

March 7, 1965 — January 10, 2022

Kimberly Vaught, age 56, a resident of Robbinsville, NC, passed away Monday, January 10, 2022 in Robbinsville, NC after a brief illness.  She was the owner/general manager of Tapoco Lodge, but more importantly, she had a big personality and loved many people well.  Preceding her five years at Tapoco, she was a pastor in the ministry for thirty years.  She received her Master’s degree in Religion and a Baccalaureate degree in Compassionate Ministries from Trevecca Nazarene University.  The churches she served include:  Grace Church of the Nazarene, Springdale Church of the Nazarene, Christ Fellowship, Montgomery Community Church, and Grove City Church of the Nazarene.  Her interests included travel with her best friend, Kim Cassity, spending time on the lake, loving the sunshine, and making people laugh.  Her deepest desire was to continue her family tradition to lead people to Jesus.

She was preceded in death by her father, Dewayne Vaught.

She is survived by her mother, Linda Vaught of Cleveland, TN; her sister, Colette Mayton (Jamie) of Cleveland, TN; her brother, Aaron Vaught of Cleveland, TN; her nephew, Brandon Mayton (Crystal) of Cleveland; and her niece, Elizabeth Mayton, of Dalton, GA.
