Carol Patricia Taylor
After bravely fighting cancer, Carol Patricia Taylor, 88, widow of Edward L. Taylor, passed away peacefully on August 22, 2017, at her residence.
Born in Erie, PA on May 15,1929, she was the daughter of the late William Christie and Mildred Schlaudecker.
Carol was blessed with an innate talent to form loving relationships and lasting friendships. She permanently adopted everyone she met, and her uncanny ability to capture their love and loyalty is a testament to her beautiful spirit.
She was generous beyond words with her time, love and gifts, giving everyone from her hairdresser to her restaurant server a gift for every occasion, or no occasion at all, just because she thought of them. Love radiated from her and anyone in her presence was touched by it.
Carol adored Erie, Hilton Head Island, decorating, boating, cooking, holidays, reading, shopping, dining out and a tall glass of chardonnay. She could be spotted regularly dining at the Frosty Frog Cafe. You could make her smile ear to ear when her favorite foods including lobster, shrimp, Carol’s Burger, mashed potatoes and cheesecake were on her plate.
Left to honor Carol’s memory are her children, Christy (Dennis) Waronsky, William (Julia) Taylor, Jamison Taylor and Patrick (Angie) Taylor; her grandchildren, Katy Waronsky, David Waronsky (Erika), Jamison Taylor, Abby Taylor Mathews (Ryan), Derek Taylor, Jason Taylor, Dawn Dixon (Jeremy), Dana Taylor (Stephanie) and Allison Taylor; nine great grandchildren and her brother, William Christie. Carol is predeceased by her daughter, Kathleen Taylor Abbondanza, and two sons, David and Edward Taylor, Jr.
Adamant that she didn’t want people to mourn her death, but to celebrate her life, a Celebration of Life will be held for family and friends on Sunday, September 10, 2017, at Sea Pines Country Club from 4-6 p.m.
Donations in Carol’s honor may be made to the Humane Society of Northwest Pennsylvania, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation or Hospice Care of the Lowcountry.
Those who knew Carol will carry her smile and everlasting love in their hearts forever!
