Daisey Mae Taylor, 84


Daisey Mae Taylor, 84, daughter of the late Eddie and Janie West Taylor, was born on March 1, 1934, in Melfa, Accomack County, Va. She transitioned into rest and passed away on Sept. 26, 2018, at Atlantic Shores Nursing Home in Millsboro, Del., where she had resided since June of 2014.

Taylor received her early education in the Williamsville Elementary School System. She was employed at Kent Sussex Industries (KSI) in Milford, Del., for a period of time. She enjoyed the freedom of having a job, getting a paycheck and having money. She always had money tucked away in her wallet. She loved shopping and being able to purchase her own items.

Taylor really loved going to church. Although she didn’t know the words to the songs, she would sing collectively with everyone else. She was always noticed standing up, clapping her hands and rocking with the pace of the music. She was just so happy and enjoyed being in the service.

Though she had no children of her own, she had plenty of nieces and nephews who she treated as her own.

In addition to her parents, Taylor was preceded in death by a brother, Robert Taylor; two brothers-in-law, Robert Smith Sr. and Albert Lee Hagans Sr.; and two nephews, Woodrow Smith and Ondera Johnson Jr. She leaves to cherish her memory two sisters, Elizabeth Smith and Margaret Hagans, both of Frankford, Del.; two brothers, Harold Taylor and his wife, Rosanne, of Williamstown, N.J., and Russell Taylor and his wife, Diane, of Selbyville, Del.; a special friend, Grace Garrison of Frankford, Del.; and a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

A celebration of Taylor’s life was to be held Oct. 6, 2018, at Calvary Pentecostal Church in Bishopville, Md., with the Rev. Deborah Wright officiating. Interment was to be at Zoar Golden Acres Cemetery, also in Bishopville. Condolences may be sent online at www.watsonfh.com.
