Rest In Peace, Martha Vaughan

from the S.R.V. Remembrance Ride & Concert:

Martha Vaughan, mother of Stevie and Jimmie Vaughan, passed away Sunday, June 14, 2009. Everyone at the S.R.V. Remembrance Ride & Concert are deeply saddened by her passing. Martha’s support of the Ride & Concert sustained the event in the early years and she often attended with her brother Joe and his family. Our condolences go out to “Uncle” Joe, Jimmie Vaughan and the rest of the Vaughan and Cook families.

After Stevie’s passing, Martha established the SRV Memorial Scholarship Fund for students at W.E.Greiner Middle School. The Ride & Concert has been proud to contribute the proceeds of the events to that scholarship fund. To date, 173 music scholarships have been awarded to music students at W.E. Greiner Middle School. This year marks the fifteenth annual event and it will be dedicated to Mrs. Vaughan’s memory as well as Stevie’s.

  1. She is in a better place with her son at her side, finally at peace. God bless the family. She will be missed.

  2. Martha was one of the sweetest people you could ever meet. She treated me and the family like one of her own when we used to meet backstage at ArcAngels shows in Dallas are during early ’90’s.

    Her passing is bittersweet because we do feel she is with her son again!

    Much love you Martha.
