Maude Perryman Taylor, 88, of Culpeper, Virginia passed away peacefully on July 12, 2019 surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on December 1, 1930 in Batna to the late John William and Myrtle Bailey Perryman. A graduate of Culpeper County High School and lifelong Culpeper resident, she was preceded in death by her husband of 38 years, James Clifton "Click" Taylor.

She is survived by her sister, Laura Perryman Brown of Culpeper; her cherished daughters, Dale Taylor Hook of Lorton, VA and Nancy Taylor Burdette and her husband, John, of Vienna, WV; her nephew, David Lee Miller and his wife, Gayle, of Culpeper; her devoted grandchildren, Stacia Aho and her husband, Jeremy, of Arlington, VA; Rachel Burdo and her husband, Jason, of Springfield, VA; Clifton Taylor Hook and his wife, Courtney, of Marshall, VA; Callie Benedict and her husband, Hank, of Fleming, OH; Patricia Hook of Lorton, VA; Richie Burdette and his fiancé, Samantha Lawson, of Manassas, VA; her adoring great-grandchildren, Annika Aho, Hudson Lynch, Reagan Lynch, Clifton Hook, Lucy Hook, Mariska Benedict, Mariah Benedict, Jordan Gray, and Remington Burdette; and a host of dear nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives, neighbors and friends. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by siblings Myrtle Miller, John Perryman, George Perryman, Charles Perryman, Lucy Laird, and Edd Perryman.

If you met Maude, you did not forget her. She was energetic, spontaneous, loyal, loving, forgiving, determined, opinionated, playful, and generous. She loved her high school softball days, trips to the beach, playing cards, puzzles, family genealogy, the Atlanta Braves, home cooking, mowing her grass, pie, gardening and collecting Pyrex. She dedicated her time to civic work, including the Salem Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary, the VFW Post 2524 Auxiliary and Wreaths Across America. Throughout her life, Maude's greatest joy was her family. She valued her marriage and remained Click’s loyal wife, ensuring he was remembered for the 30 years following his death. She instilled in her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren strong family values and the importance of togetherness and fierce loyalty.

Loved by All, Forgotten by None. She was a power of nature. I loved her the first time I met her. I'll never forgot those rides in her Jeep from town to home. I'd be perfectly positioned between her and Dale and flying with her over those back roads. So much fun. I loved going to Miss Maude's. She was my Friend. I send love and prayers to the Family at this most difficult time.

Family cookouts, Granddad and uncle Click and uncle George laughing and joking around,Dad, uncle Bill, cousin Johnny and Cousin Billy playing horseshoes. Grandma, Aunt Maude, Aunt Tom and Aunt Lottie, fussing over the side dishes being put in the right order. All the nieces and nephews and younger cousins playing and having a good ole time. And all I wanted to do was ride Chico. Aunt Maude would always say as long as Dale was out there with you I don't care. I live you Aunt Maude, you will forever be in my heart.
Love always,

I got to know Maude when I moved back to Culpeper. I was very inspired and impressed by her. She made me feel welcome and like one of the family. She told me she had a third daughter now. I feel very blessed and lucky I got to spend some time with her! She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. But we will still have alot of memories in our hearts.
