November 27, 1938March 6, 2020

Ms. Elizabeth Taylor Vause} “Liz” passed away on March 6, 2020 in West Palm Beach at the age of 81. Liz is survived by her daughter Beverly Cox, Sarasota FL, grandchildren Leland Cox, Venice FL and Ericka Anderson, Sarasota FL, Grandchild Neakail Anderson, her sister Doris Wallace, Waxsaw NC, and her brother Robert Taylor, Pulaski, VA, along with 8 nieces and nephews and 15 great nieces and nephews. As Grand Nana she was excitedly anticipating the birth of a granddaughter sometime towards June of this year.

Elizabeth was born November 27 1938 in Charlotte, North Carolina to Edwin and Dorothy Taylor. She graduated from Harding High School in 1957. Fiercely independent and self supporting she was the “Production Control Planner” for Solitron Devices in West Palm Beach for 31 years, retiring only after reaching age 80. Elizabeth also served as Treasurer for her Condo. Liz loved to make jewelry, arrange flowers and was an avid reader.

She proved herself a dedicated loyal friend who was quick with encouragement and offer to help. She enjoyed being Nana, and holiday gatherings were a highlight in her life.

No funeral service was requested by Liz. A life celebration for the family will be done in Charlotte NC at a later date to be published.

In lieu of flowers, please send memorial donations in memory of Elizabeth Vause to “Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center “ (SPARCC) at 2139 Main Street, Sarasota, FL 34237. Condolences may be sent to her daughters family through Lifetime Advocates Inc. 202 Serena Villas Drive, Sarasota, FL 34237.

Hi Bev,
I truly am so sad to hear of the passing of your mom. I loved our time together when she would come in for her haircuts and she was one of the strongest and determined women I know. She will be sorely missed by us.

You were a friend, mentor, and another Mom to me. I have many memories but the ones I cherish the most are the ones of us sitting in the break room, drinking coffee and just talking about whatever it was that came to mind.
Thank you for being my friend.

Mom last time I saw you standing on the balcony, as usual, watching me leave. You were crying and telling me to be careful just like you have done most of my life when it came time for us to part. I am so glad we had the chance to talk for as long as we did. I love you and miss you but so happy that you had the ability to do things in your way and in your timing. We all should be so blessed.

You were my inspiration for how to be a strong, independent, self-reliant woman who empowered herself and others. Rest well.
