Wanda Nell Taylor passed away on Sunday, March 14, 2021.
She was born on September 17, 1945 in Rison, Arkansas to Wayne Noah Allred and Evie Mae Anderson. She graduated from Woodlawn High School in 1963 and married the love of her life, William Marvin Taylor, on February 24, 1967.
She is preceded in death by her beloved husband William Marvin Taylor, her brother David Allred, and her sister Sue McKinney. She is survived by her only child, Jason Wayne Taylor (Jennifer), granddaughters Elizabeth Anne Taylor and Katherine Grace Taylor, and siblings Ava Jenkinson, Corinne Harrison, Carolyn (Joe) Mazanti, Richard (Linda) Allred, Jackie (Margie) Allred, and Charles Allred.
Wanda’s greatest joy in life was her granddaughters, and she was beloved by them. She made both ordinary days and holidays special. Christmas was her favorite time, and each year she outdid herself. She had a great sense of humor, and when the family was together, there was lots of laughter. She led by example, teaching her granddaughters how to be kind and loving through her actions, and passed on wisdom that they will cherish forever. She was adored by all who knew her and will be dearly missed.
A private service will be held on Saturday, March 20th.
