Hazel Cobb Taylor

Hazel Cobb Taylor, age 90, of Roanoke Rapids, died Thursday, December 15, 2016.

Hazel, a native of Halifax County, was the daughter of the late Olyo Russell and Roberta Spence Cobb. She was also preceded in death by her dearly loved husband and companion of 63 years, Joseph Taylor; her daughter, Judy Taylor; her sisters, Elizabeth Pilley Wood, Gertrude Fox, Edna Gay and Laura Harris.

Hazel was a devoted wife and mother to her family. She was a homemaker until her children were older. She served as the secretary and friend to the community of the Weldon United Methodist Church for many years. She was a member of Calvary Baptist Church. Later she was the caretaker to her husband after his health declined.

Hazel loved God, family, and all of God's people. The victory is won and the healing has come.

The wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister, friend and sometimes "saint" has gone home to be another "Angel in God's Army", and of course, to see her beloved, Joe.

She is survived by her daughters, Martha Taylor Bradshaw and her husband, Charles, of Benson, and Sarah Taylor of Raleigh; four beloved grandchildren, Bo Christenbury and his wife, Stacy, Kate Christenbury, Christie Whitby-Jones and her husband, Russell, and Jenny Drummond and her husband, Bryan; four beloved great-grandchildren, Kellie Whitby-Jones, Aven Christenbury, Faith and Luke Drummond; her brothers, Clifton Cobb and his wife, Jo Ann, of Halifax, Russell Cobb and his wife, Margaret, of Hickory; and many loving nieces, nephews and friends.
