Sarah Taylor

January 25, 1927 - September 20, 2022

Sarah Vaudine “Memaw” Taylor, 95, of Nederland, passed away Tuesday, September 20, 2022, at Merit Health River Regional, Mississippi. She was born January 25, 1927, in Timpson, Texas to Annie Mitchell Courtney and Erwin Courtney.

Sarah or “Memaw,” as most called her, was a faithful member of First United Methodist Church, Nederland for many years and loved going to her Sunday school classes. She loved visiting with her friends and neighbors any time and all the time. She loved playing card games; her favorite was Hand and Foot Canasta. She would play all day and into the night sitting at the kitchen table and then would spend the next day wondering why her body was so sore.

Memaw truly had a full and wonderful life, and she enjoyed every moment. She and Percy, her late husband, enjoyed going to Las Vegas every year with friends and they enjoyed their other travels to other states as well. She was a warm and caring person whose kind heart always shined, and she will be missed forever.

Survivors include children, Dale Taylor and wife, Jackie and Betsy Evans and husband, Jimmy; grandchildren, Jake Taylor and wife, Angela; Sarah Rodgers and husband, Andy; Gary Evans and wife, Lauren; Mike Lewis and wife, Jennifer; and Ricky Evans and wife, Tammy; great-grandchildren, C.J. Evans; Kane Rodgers; Jameson Evans; Ty Lewis and wife, Abigale; Jodie White; and McKenzy Lewis; and great-great-grandchildren, Avree and Jack.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband of sixty-seven years, Percy Garrison Taylor; brothers, J.D., M.C., Roy, Hulon, and Gaylon Courtney; and sisters, Minnie Lee Hudson and Verlene Roberts.

    Mrs. Taylor was one the sweetest and kindest person I’ve ever known. I have such fond childhood memories of her and her letting me scrape the warm chocolate fudge from the pot. With much love I pray for comfort for her family and friends.
