Tribute & Message From The Family


Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend

Vaughan was born on March 1, 1932 and passed away on May 26, 2017. She was a longtime resident of Lansdowne, PA and died in Lafayette Hill, PA.
Vaughan was a blessing to all who knew her and a role model of grace, generosity, compassion and strength. Mom never met a stranger. She opened her home to all, fed them well and always left them better than they arrived. She co-founded the Lansdowne Girls club and opened the door for countless girls and young women to pursue athletics in high school and college. She served the Lansdowne and Delaware County communities tirelessly for almost fifty years including the William Penn School System and Riddle Memorial Hospital.
Vaughan was pre-deceased by her mother, Mary L. Gray and her father, Fred Leoffler.
Her beloved husband of almost sixty years, Joseph J. Bianco, passed away in 2011. We are joyful that they are re-united now for eternity along with many friends and family members in heaven.
Left on earth to cherish Vaughan's memory are:
Her children:
Christine Byrne
Melissa Fitzpatrick (Thomas)
Joseph Bianco (Suzanne)
Patrick Bianco
Her grandchildren:
Jennifer (David) Taylor

My wife and I learned of Vaughn's passing this morning. We have been visiting her for some time as Eucharist Ministers from St Phillip Neri Catholic Church. Although she had limited responses to our conversations she would always smile. She is a grand lady and is at peace. Jim

Our thoughts, memories and prayers are with the Bianco Family during these trying times. Mrs B. is now once again side by side with Mr. B. cooking all his favorite dishes, long hot peppers and screw drivers. Mrs. B will not be alone as her two best friends (Catherine Garraway and Joanne Klein) will make her arrival special and comfortable. They will continue to plan a club in heaven as they had developed the Lansdowne Girls Club in Lansdowne. I wish the best to the family that treated everyone as a family member and welcomed them into their house and home. God Bless you and protect all of your family members.
