December 1, 1979 ~ December 15, 2013

She was my bright and shining star, a special angel whose gentle heart and kind nature never faltered, even in her darkest hour. Grace and courage were hers in the face of adversity and from her I learned that unconditional love and acceptance are neither easy nor fast, but they are always worth it.

She grew into a stunningly beautiful woman with a glorious smile. She did battle with the disease of alcoholism. It finally unleashed the four horsemen terror, bewilderment, frustration and despair. That battle was completed in the evening of December 15, 2013. Her bright and shining star lives on.

Jasmine leaves behind her mother, Susan (Wayne) Kelly Michaelsen, Layton, her dad, Thomas J. Vaughn; two brothers and a sister, Joseph L. (Tracy) Westhusin, Medford, OR; Evaleisa L. (Curtis) Fox, Layton; and Mark T. (Natalie) Vaughn of Willard; four children, Justine T. Ferguson, Woods Cross; Natalya M. Vega, Ogden; Kobe Scott Jimenez, Ogden; and Teija Susan Cross, Ogden; two grandmothers, Pearl B. Sei of Ogden; and Lara Ramey, Clearfield; aunt, Laurie Rice, Livingston, WY; uncle, Frank Halloran, Los Angeles, CA;two cousins, Misty Rose Halloran, Ogden; and Whitney Scott (Cory) Jackson, Layton; nephew, Marc A. McCreight, Layton; and a gaggle of little cousins.
