Veronia D. Taylor

July 28, 1938 ~ January 29, 2021 (age 82)


Miss Veronia D. Taylor was born July 28, 1938 to Doretha Anthony Taylor in Monroe, North Carolina. She was a very focused and hardworking woman. She worked for over 50 years at Juds Restaurant alongside many of her relatives and friends, where she was known as Faronie. 

She would walk to work 5 miles one way and was always on time. Granny only had one on going house rule "you eat what's in front of you". if you didn't want one thing, then you didn't want nothing at all cause you ain't hungry enough". She showered her grandchildren with bags every paycheck filled with candy and snacks. 

Along with those bags was her saying "I love you". Veronia was always there for her children, grandkids, family, church, friends and neighbors. Her door was always open and never required a phone call ahead. Veronia raised her granddaughter, Jennifer Taylor as her own. And was a best friend to her granddaughter, Adrienne Patterson Harris.

Women like Veronia Taylor are the root of many greater attributes that are shown through their children and the lives they're touched, as well as the generations here and now and still to come. The women who have worked  in kitchens, scrubbed floors, and have been caretakers to so many.

Veronia and women like her  are some of the strongest parts of foundations within this nation; yet they are rarely spoken of and their stories are rare in seen in history.

Veronia D. Taylor departed this world, January 28th , 2021 surrounded by her loving family members. She was preceded in death by her son, Worthell Taylor (Angela) of Monroe, North Carolina. 

She leaves behind her daughter:  Paula Patterson (Ronnie) of Monroe, North Carolina. Sons: George Taylor (Ginger) of Monroe, North Carolina. and Henderson Taylor of Hartford, Connecticut. And a host of other relatives and friends.
