Monique Marguerite Taylor met her beloved Lord and Savior Friday, Feb. 11, 2022.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Madeline and Fernand Marguerite; and her husband, Delbert Taylor.
Monique led a beautiful life, perfectly woven into God’s tapestry of time. She was born outside of Paris, France, and experienced a childhood full of laughter, love and family. Then as a war bride, Monique came to Robeson County in 1946, where she and Delbert began their own family and were later reunited with Monique’s cherished parents after they moved from France to North Carolina.
“Monnie” was the soft smile at the Columbus County Tax Office until her retirement at age 73. She was a precious daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. Monique’s easy manner and kindness were seen in every aspect of her life. She fiercely loved her family, children, the United States military troops and animals. This was demonstrated with her support, prayers and often with a warm hug and gentle words. Monique’s faith and passion for sharing God’s goodness were in every conversation she spoke and letter she wrote.
A private graveside service is being officiated by Pastor Dodd, from Antioch Baptist Church Wednesday, Feb. 16. Floyd’s Mortuary and Crematory is serving the family. The family would like to sincerely thank all involved in Monique’s healthcare. Monique loved and valued them.
Monique is survived by two daughters, Christine Carter (Marty) and Sylvia Richardson (Wayne Bridgers); grandchildren, Danielle Adkins, Stephanie Carter and Christopher Brisson (Ashley); great-grandchildren, Caleb and Penelope Adkins and Dylan and Kenley Brisson; sister, Liliane Keller; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, Monique would most like to be remembered with donations to Feed the Children, P.O. Box 36, Oklahoma City, Okla. 73101.
