She was a member for many years of Deliverance Revival Tabernacle under the late Pastor E. I. Osborne. Sister Taylor was in the missionary ministry, she worked as an usher and Sunday school teacher. Whatever her hands could find to do, she did it, and she was faithful in all that she did. You could count on her. When Sister Taylor transferred from DRT with consent of her pastor, she became a member of NCCC, where she brought that same spirit of being a faithful worker and committed herself to Godly leadership. She took advantage of the courses that were offered and received certificates. Sister Taylor not only worked in church, she also did volunteer work. On some holidays she served food at shelters, door-to-door ministry, street ministry, worked in outreach programs, and did public school service as a reading coach for 1st , 2nd and 3rd graders.

She was known for her cheery spirit and sweet smile. She would often say, I had some bad days, but my good days outweigh my bad ones.
