Taylor, daughter, Deborah Taylor; parents, John Lewis and Addie Lou Bailey of Sneads, Florida; two sisters, Elizabeth (Essie) Alderman and Paula Pierce; two brothers, John (Bill) Bailey, and Bobby Bailey.

Ms. Taylor is survived by one sister, Joann Bailey Stone of Sneads, Florida; daughter, Daphany (Russell) Gunter; three sons, Dane Taylor, Dennie Taylor, Derrick (Pam) Taylor; eight grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
