Mrs. Taylor was foremost a homemaker who took very good care of her family. She was a gifted seamstress and even made clothes for her family.

After she retired, she kept herself busy taking care of others in various ways including volunteering at the Camp County Senior Citizens Building. She was an active member of the First Baptist Church in Pittsburg and especially enjoyed attending her wonderful ladies Sunday School class until she no longer was physically able to attend, although the ladies in her class were still a vital part of her life, visiting her and taking care of her any way they could.
