Edith Warren Taylor, 92, passed away on Monday, October 12, 2020 at Beacon Place.

Edith was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend who was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her. She was a talented seamstress, gardener, and cake decorator. She so enjoyed blessing many with her birthday cakes, wedding cakes, and sharing flowers from her yard for such special occasions. Edith was a faithful member of St. Paul Presbyterian Church, where she taught children’s Sunday school and was active in the Presbyterian Women’s Association. She joined numerous friends and walked at Four Seasons Town Center, six days a week for twenty years, until her health would no longer allow her to do so.
