Bertha Mae Vaughn


Our blessed Mother Bertha Mae Vaughn was a servant of thy Lord Jesus.  At the young age of nine-years old, following her baptism, Bertha Mae was bestowed a face-to-face Visitation with the King of Kings, Eternal Glory.  As she gazed and beheld His glory: The King, Dressed in a glistening Robe appeared in His glorified Body; standing in the midst with His Arms stretched out beckoning His Daughter to come with Him.  The child, Bertha Mae answered her Master, I am not ready yet.  

Throughout her lifetime, Bertha Mae would experience divine interventions and angels that would accompany her wherever she went. She was highly favored by the Father God.  

Mother Vaughn was a strikingly beautiful woman known for her soft-spoken voice, Indian features and red curly long hair.  The Mother of Zion was small in stature, gentle, and a holy woman with a strong prophetic dream and healing mantle.  She was a faithful and devoted member of Solid Rock where she was the Mother, Devotional Leader and Recording Secretary.  

In the early morning of October 14, 2008, after a lengthy illness, Mother Bertha Vaughn exhorted what would become her final impartation, sang one of her favorite hymns, Oh LordRemember Me and drifted off to sleep.  As His Beloved Daughter slept, the Lord Jesus took her Home to Heaven. 

Mother Vaughn left an edible mark in the Prospect Heights, Brooklyn community in which our precious mother lived most of her life.  On the evening of her public viewing in October of 2008 lines to enter into her church home could be seen around the block of its location. The overflowing joy of the Lord which she gracefully carried in her heart touched and transformed many lives.  Her love, compassion and devotion to her four children including, Apostle Tonya, her grandchildren and the elderly is fondly remembered and cherished today.   

I have fought a good fight, I have finished  my course, I have kept the faith.  2 Timothy 4:7
