NEW MADRID, MO (KFVS) - The New Madrid Community is remembering one of their own who recently lost her battle with cancer.
Jackie Vaughn passed away on June 19.
Her family said she always wanted to help in unique ways.
And she even did so in death by donating her body to science.
So on Thursday friends and family honored her in a different way.
The crowd braved the heat to release hundreds of balloons in her honor.
