Cecelia Annette Taylor, a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, and godmother, was born on the 21st of May, 1966, in Dothan, Alabama, and was called to her Heavenly home on the 4th of November, 2023.

Her special goddaughter, Janiliyah Thomas, held a unique place in her heart; a god sister, Vanessa Dickens.
