Charlotte Virginia (Hamilton) Vaught was born July 10, 1919, in Hobert, Oklahoma to T.C. and Artha Belle (Fraley) Hamilton.  She graduated from Anadarko High School in Oklahoma in 1936 and business college in 1938.  Charlotte married Troy C. Vaught August 17, 1940, at the Methodist parsonage in Dodge City, KS.  Following World War II, Troy’s jobs transferred them to numerous locations in Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado.  In 1962, they bought the Swans Ladies Store in Wayne and co-owned and managed the store until shortly before Troy’s death in 1983.  In 2016, Charlotte moved to Hillcrest Care Center in Laurel.  Charlotte was a gifted seamstress, an astute business person, and a loving wife, mother, and grandmother.  Most of all she loved the Lord and was content in the knowledge she would someday join Him.
