Nita Eloise Taylor
Nita Eloise Dailey Taylor, age 89, of Humble, Texas, entered the Church Triumphant on April 25, 2019. She entered this world on October 16, 1929 in Gladewater, Texas, as Nita Eloise Dailey. Nita graduated from Liberty-Eylau High School in Texarkana, Texas.
In 1950, she married Jack S. Taylor while he was serving in the United States Airforce. Following his military service, they moved to Arkadelphia, Arkansas and then Humble, Texas. They divorced in 1989.
Nita and Jack were co-owners of Taylor’s Photography from 1968 to 1989 and then Nita carried on until she retired in 2001. She loved photography and photographing weddings and families. During this time, she attended Sam Houston State University where she received a Certificate for her studies in photography. She also loved gardening, sewing, canning, and Sunday School, both attending and teaching at First United Methodist Church, Humble, Texas, where she taught two-year old’s for more than 30 years. She spent time visiting friends and neighbors in Humble as she walked her dog every day. She also enjoyed many Church functions.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Burton E. Dailey, Sr. and Thelma Viean Dailey, her brother and sister-in-law, Burton E. Dailey, Jr. and Lorraine Dailey, her sister, Dorothy Jean Slider, and her brother, Paul R. Dailey.
She is survived by four children and their spouses: Sharon Taylor; Lisa Kodosky and husband Warren Kodosky; Christine Taylor-Foreman and husband Roger Foreman; Kevin Taylor and wife Debra Taylor. Nita had five grandchildren: Derwood McCorquodale, Jr., Robert McCorquodale, Jonathan McCorquodale, Bryan Kodosky, and Robin Kodosky; and three great-grandchildren: Amri Kimball, Neveah McCorquodale and Grace McCorquodale; a sister-n-law, Donna Reed Parrott Dailey, and lots of cousins, nieces, nephews and other extended family.
Nita’s family wishes to thank her daughter Sharon for making it possible for Nita to stay in her home. We are especially grateful to AMED Hospice for their great care. We also have a great debt of gratitude to Visiting Angels, most notably Linda Cannon and Mary Urban, who treated our mother just like their mother.
