Connie Taylor

December 24, 1952 — May 19, 2024

     Connie Taylor, beloved mother, grandmother, and sibling, quietly departed this
life May 19, 2024, at the age of 71. Born December 24, 1952, in Washington, D.C.
She was the daughter of George Washington Taylor and Mattie Mae Taylor. She
grew up in a loving family alongside her siblings Barbara, George, Joyce, Belinda,
Jackie, Vanessa, and David.
Connie matriculated through the DC public school systems and proudly graduated
from Spingarn High School on June 10th, 1970. While in school, she enjoyed
Typing, Algebra, English and was a member of the Audio-Visual Aid Team. She
stayed active in sports, on the softball and volleyball teams.
Days after graduating high school, she began her long work career at the National
Education Association (NEA), Washington, D.C. on June 16th, 1970, where she
made significant contributions to the field of education. She retired after 30 years
of service on June 30, 2000.
It was during her tenure with the National Education Association, her love for
traveling grew. She traveled throughout the United States, always collecting a
magnet from the many places she visited.
In March of 1976, she enlisted in the United States Army Reserve and served her
country proudly. Connie was a proud Army Reserve member for 20 years,
showcasing her commitment to serving her country. She was Honorable
Discharged at the rank of Staff Sergeant in June 1996.
Connie attended the University of Maryland University College; she had twelve
(12) credits remaining from obtaining her bachelor’s degree in business
management. In addition to her academic pursuits, Connie was actively involved
in the community and supported organizations such as the NAACP. She was a
fierce proponent of education and law and would fight for what she believed in,
always willing to help anyone. She wanted to empower individuals with
knowledge so they could be the best versions of themselves.
Known for her vibrant personality, Connie looked forward to holiday gatherings
with her family, laughing and telling jokes with her siblings. She cherished
spending time with them and always put family first. Connie always made mac
and cheese, and she could make a mean Rum cake too!

Her favorite hobbies included bowling with her family on Saturday nights,
ceramics with her sisters, and traveling, especially to National Parks and museums.
Connie had a wide range of interests, enjoying the music of Motown Artists and
George Benson. She found joy in watching TV shows like Perry Mason and
Matlock, and was an avid fan of the Washington Redskins Football team.
In September 1979, she was blessed with a beautiful son Donnell Deloatch. She
was a loving mother that had a deep love for her son. She did everything to ensure
Donnell knew that he was cared for and well-loved. When it was Donnell’s turn
to take care of his mother, he ensured she knew she was well-loved until her
passing.
Connie was preceded in death by her three sisters Barbara Taylor, Joyce Taylor
(Perry) and Belinda Douglas. She will be dearly missed by her son Donnell, her
siblings, Jackie, Vanessa, George, David, her grandchildren, Jeremiah, Cherish,
and Samantha, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
Her love, wisdom, and dedication have left an indelible impact on the lives of
those she touched. Connie's favorite quotes, "Knowledge is Wealth" and "Keep
your eyes on the prize," will continue to inspire and guide those who knew her.
