TAYLOR, PHYLLIS LEONA

Mrs. Taylor (3).jpg

It is with great sadness that the family of Phyllis Taylor announces her passing on November 24, at the Charles Curtis Memorial Hospital. Isaiah and Ada Taylor, of Ship Cove were delighted when Phyllis was born into their family. Phyllis loved growing up in Ship Cove, and she had wonderful memories of Lance aux Souash and Elbone. When she married David, in 1970, she shared those joys with him. After 10 years of waiting, Phyllis and Dave began to add to their family. Then she was also able to teach them the wonders of our beautiful hills and shores. Phyllis had many loves beyond exploring nature. She was skilled in a number of crafts, loved to sew and quilt. Phyllis loved music and was a gifted singer as well as organist. She was also an avid reader. Phyllis went back to school as an adult, and was pleased to graduate from CONA. Underneath all of her interests, Phyllis was devoted to Jesus. She was active in the UCW, was the Sunday School Superintendent and shared her joy in music with both Church and SundaySchool. Her love of children and willingness to serve her community also led Phyllis to lead the Girl Guides. She touched many, many lives. Beyond all of this, her crowning achievement was the love she showered on David and their three daughters and grandson. She leaves behind her beloved husband David, her three daughters Melanie, Jeanette and Sue Anne, her Grandson Jordan, Her Sisters Vina, Manlyn, and Dale, Brother Stafford. She was predeceased by her Mother (Ada), Father (Isaiah) and Brother (Winston). The Funeral service will be held on Friday December 1st, 2017 at 2:00pm from the Raleigh United Church with Rev. Gus Pendleton officiating. Inurnment will take place after the service at the church cemetery. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Kerry M. Fillatre’s Funeral Homes, St. Anthony and Roddickton, Siobhan Ebukwe Funeral Director. Donations can be made to the Taylor Family in Phyllis’ Honour.
