Vaudene loved to live life every day. She loved to be happy and have fun which was obvious when hearing her infectious laugh. She was a faithful Christian and lived this life every day. The first thing she would ask upon meeting someone was if they were a Christian as she witnessed to them the word of God. She loved her family and took great pride in herself and them. She was a terrific cook and loved hosting her family for any occasions. Her faith and love is an example for us to follow.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Mitchell Tolbert; parents, Grady and Etta Louise Light; daughter, Donna Tolbert Reid; and siblings, Grady Junior Light II and Shurlene Williams.

She is survived by her son, Reggie Mitchell Tolbert; grandchildren, Lance Reid, Chloey Tolbert, Gracie Tolbert, and Halle` Tolbert; siblings, Jean Overton, Lloyd Light, Lavon Light, Wayne Light, Marilyn Bean, Glenda Bice, Jerry Light and Kenny Light
