Minnie Faye Hurd-Taylor was born to Howard Hurd and Alice Reese on January 19, 1942 in Coupland, Texas. She was the eldest of 18 children between the Piper and Hurd families and is preceded in death by five brothers and one sister. During her life, she managed to find an additional three friends who she could always count on.

Faye gave her life to Christ at an early age. She graduated from O. L. Price High School in Taylor, Texas before attending Paul Quinn College in Waco, Texas where she obtained a bachelor’s degree in Business and English. She also attended East Texas State University in Commerce, Texas where she obtained a master’s certificate in Human Services Planning from the University of Texas at Austin.

Faye was a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and, in true fashion, became a high school teacher in Groesbeck, Texas in 1966 teaching in an integrated classroom.

She was united in Holy Matrimony with Sherman Taylor, Jr., and to this union two children were born. A son, Sherman Taylor III and a daughter, Alicia Jaree Nicole Taylor.

Faye's hobbies were cooking sewing, gardening, and she loved to help her family in any way she could.

As her career progressed, she worked at Texas Instruments as a Purchaser/Planner, ran her own business as a Professional Counselor, worked as a Production Specialist at IBM, and retired from Walmart in 2017 after 18 years as a sewing and crafts expert.

Faye is preceded in death by her husband and her daughter.

She leaves behind a son, Sherman (Kimberly) of Austin and three grandchildren, Raife, Imani and Khyah. She also leaves behind many sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews and friends whom she dearly loved.

In 1968, while visiting the business office at PQC, Faye started asking questions about where I am from and relatives in Lexington, Texas, it was at that moment she took care of me and showered her love on me.

A lost sister is like a ship without a sail. I know God has gained a precious jewel. She taught me a lot, which I shall forever be grateful for.
