Mary was so dear to my heart we met during chemo treatment and she would always be my little doctor. Or the time we snuck her kitty in and she told me she loved me and I will remember that for the rest of my life.

Carol Lavin

My heart and prayers go out to Mary’s entire family and her many friends. I had the pleasure of working with her grandma, Margaret. I cannot imagine the heartbreak that you all are going through. I will continue to keep your family in my prayers.

My heart is breaking for your beautiful family.

Although I did not have the honor of knowing Mary personally, I did know how loved and cherished she was by her family. Knowing her cousin Victoria for roughly seven years and getting to know her family, I have heard all of the wonderful memories and the shared warmth from her family regarding Mary. I am deeply sorry for the loss of such an outgoing and beautiful soul. Thoughts and prayers are going out to all those who were knew and love Mary.

Oh my goodness, I had no idea this sweet child has been dealing with such a horrific disease, what a strong young woman she is. Having lost a child and a grandchild we surely know the pain you are feeling and our hearts break for you. Our peace and comfort was and is in knowing our children are at home alive and well awaiting our arrival. Bill and Jayne I know how strong your family is, the love and closeness has always been an inspiration to me and sweet Laura has always been so kind, I just have to believe that God allowed her the honor and privilege of being the mother of this special sweet soul during her time here on earth. I want you all to know that we love you and are praying for peace, strength and comfort during this extremely sad time, find comfort in knowing she hasn't gone far, she's right there at the door alive, healthy, vibrantly waiting to see you again....

Mary and I coached together at Island Allstate North for about a year. She was always the most lively spirit and sweetest soul to be around. She brought joy to everyone. My most memorable times with her include coming up with fun obstacles and challenges for the kids and one time we had to clean up throw up off of the sidewalk with just a bucket and the sink water. We laughed so hard cleaning it up because it was just so awful. We probably talked about that for weeks!

Carrie McCannell-Scruggs

Mary Catherine Taylor, 17, passed peacefully from this life, surrounded by her loved ones at home on February 12, 2024.

Born August 14, 2006 in Jacksonville, Florida to Laura and Dale Taylor, Mary was a spirited young lady with dreams of becoming a nurse and working with pediatric cancer patients like herself.

From gymnastics and cheerleading to horseback riding and honors classes, Mary packed a lifetime of experiences and activities into her brief 17 years. She was an active member of Memorial United Methodist Church and enjoyed spending time with loved ones at the beach, poolside, or anywhere she could get a chocolate milkshake.

She is preceded in death by her maternal great-grandfather David Laviner, paternal great grandparents Arvel and Catherine Moore, great uncle Lee Taylor, paternal great grandfather Kenneth Nelson. She is survived by her mother Laura Scott (Michael), father Dale Taylor (Mandee), grandparents Billy and Jayne Taylor, Keith and Denise Nelson, Margaret and Mitchell Scott, Kirk and Pat Ray, her maternal great-grandmother Mary Laviner, paternal great-grandmother Reba Nelson, and brothers Ryan Taylor, Jacob Ashford, and Micheal Lee Scott. Mary will be missed by her aunts and uncles, Will Taylor (Ashley), David Taylor (Michele), Olivia Taylor, Garrett and Jessica Scott, and Jenna Kay Scott, Alisha Outler (Mike), Shane Ray (Carrie), Jason Ray (Zachary), Miranda Lee and her great-aunt Patti Barber (Paul), as well as her many cousins, extended family, friends, and dear friend Neriah Giedrys.

Mary’s family is and will always be grateful for the prayers and support of the community.

The family will welcome visitors at Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors on February 14, from 4 to 6 p.m.

Funeral services will take place February 15, at 3 p.m. in Maxwell Hall at Memorial United Methodist Church, followed by a Service of Committal at Bosque Bello Cemetery.
