Obituary of Alice Taylor

Alice W. Taylor, 98, passed away on Saturday, April 28 at PRMC surrounded by her loving family.  She was born in the Snow Hill area on February 8, 1920 to Rufus James and Florence (Twigg) Wells and spent much of her childhood in the Piney Grove area, near Mt. Olive Church.  Her father passed away when Alice was 10 years old, and her mother later married John Figgs.

Alice married Jim Wilson, Sr. on Christmas Eve in 1935, and later married Otho Warren Taylor on November 6, 1970.  She worked for Moore Business Forms for 20 years, retiring in 1975, and never missed a day of work.  Her favorite pastimes included anything dealing with family. In the early years she always had huge dinners, and in later years enjoyed going to Dayton’s, Our Place, and Barbely’s for dinner with the family.

She is survived by her two sons Jim Wilson, Jr. (Ellen) and Ron Wilson, grandsons Jim Wilson III (Victoria), Chris Wilson (Maria), great grandchildren Forrest, Natalia, Olivia and Christianna Wilson, great-great grandchildren Greyson Wilson and Mason Jones.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by husbands, Jim Wilson Sr. and Otho Warren Taylor, brothers, Virgil and Fred Wells, sisters Olivia Adkins and Clevia Marvel, and nephew William J. “Sonny” Adkins and niece Nancy Marvel.  The family would like to especially thank June and Freddie Dysart and Rada Renshaw for all their help with their “Aunt Alice”. Also a special thanks to her caregivers, Darlene Gray and Barbara Hickman and special friends, Nancy Barron, Margaret Bloxom, Jim and Francis Hurley and Doris Hopkins.
