Willie Jean Taylor Obituary
WILLIE JEAN TAYLOR passed away on December 7, 2016 at Riverside Community Hospital. She was born in Gilmer, Texas to Vincent and Nannie Hale. She spent her formative years in Gilmer before moving to Riverside, California. In Riverside, she met Jackie Taylor, an airman in the United States Air Force, and they were united in Holy Matrimony in 1959. To this union two children were born, a son, Orlando Antonio, and a daughter, Jacqueline Lamesa. Willie Jean Taylor was preceded in death by her husband Jackie Taylor; by her brothers, L.C. Hale, L.D. Hale, and A.D. Hale; and by her sisters, Annie B. Florunary, Lurlene Robinson, and Ezzie Lee Scott. Jean worked hard, along with her husband, to support her family and provide a solid education for her children; she eventually became a home healthcare provider for the elderly. It was her desire always to have those near and dear to her strive to excel through education. Education was constantly stressed which led to both her children earning advanced degrees. Later in life, Jean became a loving and caring member of Kansas Avenue Seventh-Day Adventist Church. Her Christian life was an example for all who came in contact with her. She was a living example of loving service and she was a woman of unique creative talents. Jean was also a dedicated member of the Martin Luther King Senior Citizen's Club at the Stratton Center located in Bordwell Park. Willie Jean is survived by her son, Orlando Antonio Taylor, and her daughter Dr. Jacqueline Lamesa Taylor Wilcoxson and husband Don Ajen‚ Wilcoxson; by two sisters, Mrs. Freddie Rean Crain of Rialto, California and Mrs. Cloteal Hall of Richards, Texas; Nicholas Schouten; a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins; and many friends. She lives in the hearts and minds of those who knew and loved her. Funeral services will be at Kansas Avenue Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 4491 Kansas Avenue, Riverside, CA 92507 at 11:00 a.m. on December 19, 2016. She will be interred at Riverside National Cemetery immediately following church services. Arrangements by Acheson and Graham Garden of Prayer Mortuary, 7944 Magnolia Avenue Riverside, California 92504.
