Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalms 23:4

On January 25, 1947 in Eastover, South Carolina, the late Wilbert Taylor and the late Rosa Lee Howard Taylor were blessed to receive a precious baby girl, Louise Taylor. She was an amazing, honest, and outspoken daughter, sister, and aunt. God’s plans are not always our plans. When your angels came for her on Tuesday morning, May 11, 2021, after a brief illness, this was much sooner than we planned, but we'll brave the grief that comes and try to understand.

Louise was home schooled by her family.  In her younger years, Louise enjoyed cooking dinner and spending time with family.  While Louise did not give birth to children of her own, she was a mother figure to many. In October of 2020, Louise moved to Estill, South Carolina and lived with her brother Anderson, who she loved dearly. An indicator of her happiness to be in Estill was the demonstration of the beautiful smile that she often displayed and greeted people with, when they visited the home. If you did not want to hear the truth about something, Louise wasn’t the person to ask, she was going to express her honest opinion about the situation. She loved her family with all of her heart.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers and sisters, John, Wilbert, Jr., Forrest, Sr., Thomas, Annie Mae, Senna, Minnie, Julia Mae, and Sallie; special niece & great-nephew, Tanya & Lamar.

Louise leaves to cherish her memories: two sisters, Frances Bell of Eastover, SC and Dorothy (William) Springer of Columbia, SC; two brothers, Willie Taylor of Eastover, SC and Anderson Taylor of Estill, SC; one sister-in-law, Emma Taylor of Columbia, SC; adopted family (Martin Family); a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.  

 Due to the current state of (COVID-19) pandemic and in order to promote social distancing, anyone entering the funeral home for viewing; as well as attending all graveside services must wear a mask. We will also limit the number of persons allowed to enter the funeral home at any given period during the viewing process.  We ask that you leave the premise upon exiting the building. The family is most appreciative to each of you for  your prayers and considerations during this difficult time in their lives
