Brown-Wynne Funeral Home Obituary

Katie Nell Taylor, 18, slipped away from us on Thursday, February 3, 2011. There are so many words to describe Katie. Most of these words are joyous and jovial. She meant something different to all who knew her. Through all of the trials and tribulations, she was the smile that pulled us...

Mine and Andrea's hearts are broken for you. Katie was a beautiful girl inside and out. When we moved to Raleigh in 2003, Andrea needed a friend. We prayed and ask God to send Andrea a special friend. Andrea then met Katie at West Cary Middle School. God had sent Katie to Andrea as that special friend, and she was every bit of that. We loved her and will never forget her.

My heart goes out to Katie's family. I had the privilege of working with her on several feral cat projects through our rescue group and was always struck by her inquisitive nature, sweet spirit and quiet determination. She was a friend to cats, great and small. She will be deeply missed.

We are so saddened to hear of the passing of your beautiful angel. Our thoughts, prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time in your lives. May all the prayers give you strength to get through the coming days.

When my son entered Cary High in Ninth Grade, he came from Dillard Drive Middle and didn't know many people at Cary. It was Katie that would come and sit with him at lunch. She seemed to reach out to everyone.

I met her twice, once when the "group" went to the movies. She was "hung on Micheal's hip" and it was clear that the two of them had a very special relationship. It brought tears to my eyes at that moment because it was sweet and innocent.


Luv you Katie, Here is a big HUG, My prayers are with you Tina and God bless the family.

We will always remember Katie as a beautiful girl with a wonderful sense of humor. Tina, Katie, and Blizzard were our "bus stop buddies" during the Morrisville Elem. school years and a contributing part of our Cary H.S. community. Our hearts are broken for the loss of Katie and all of the ways in which she would have continued to make the world a better place. Katie's legacy is a reminder for us to fully live each moment, that all living things are precious, to always have a...

Dear Roy,
When my wife and I saw the sad news about your daughter, our hearts went out to you and our eyes filled with tears. We were happy, though, to read of Katie's love for the Carolina Tiger Sanctuary. Having recently "discovered" it ourselves, we share Katie's enthusiasm for the work that they do there, and we are pleased to send a gift to both honor your daughter's memory and a place of good works. Roger and Lynne Gerber of Chatham County, NC
