SHALIMAR – Constance J. (Connie) Taylor, of Shalimar, FL, passed peacefully from this life into eternity with her loving family by her side on January 6, 2023, after a brave and short battle with cancer. A faithful follower of Jesus Christ, she is now safe and secure in the arms of her Lord and Savior. She was a beloved Mother, Wife, Friend, Grandmother, and the world’s best shopper and storyteller. Connie was predeceased in death by her son David Charles Taylor, Sister Judith Ward and her parents James and Lucille (Johns) Vick.
Connie was born on December 8, 1938, in Roseville, MI. At age six, her family relocated to the big city of Austin, TX, where her father opened his construction business. Connie graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in 1956.
She is survived by her husband, the love of her life, and partner in crime of 66 years, Albert Charles Taylor. Other surviving family members are her sons William James Taylor and wife Constance, Mark Edward Taylor; her grandchildren David Taylor, Jarrod Taylor, Jamie Taylor, Jade Lynn, numerous great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
Connie had a son, David, while stationed in Bergstrom AFB, TX, and a son Bill while in Roswell NM. While stationed at Clark AFB, Philippines for the second time, a beautiful surprise package came as their youngest son Mark was born.
Connie lived a great life as the wife of an Air Force Chief Master Sergeant, traveling and living all over the world. She lived overseas for over 22 years. During these world travels, she has had some of the most interesting stories to tell. Never one to miss any details, she could walk into a room, light it up and captivate the entire audience. And yes, these stories would last for hours. She was also the most intense shopper, spending hours in thrift stores just looking at a single object, picking out the perfect gift for anyone. She did see the beauty in everything. Connie had such a giving heart to those less fortunate and in need of assistance. This vibrant woman will be very missed in this world.
Al was the most dedicated, caring husband, by her bedside over the last 100 days of the most grueling and sad part of this devastating disease. Connie was an active member of Mary Esther Baptist Church. We thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
The family will receive friends at a visitation at McLaughlin Mortuary, 10 am on Thursday, January 12, 2023. Funeral service will follow at 11:00 am, following the service, burial will in Beal Memorial Cemetery, Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
