Ona Agnes Campbell Taylor, age 96, passed away Saturday, September 11th while a resident of Wood Presbyterian Nursing Home in Sweetwater, TN. A former resident of Lenoir City and Maryville, TN, she was a dedicated minister's wife, a loving mother, and a precious grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother. Her joy in life was as a nurturer of her family. When she lost her own mother as a teenager, she took on the role to help her father care for her three brothers. To do so, she delayed her schooling until her youngest brother started school, and then she went back and finished high school. She was a nurturer to friends and church family as well as her natural family, and many of them have kept in touch with her through the decades. She accompanied her husband as he pastored Primitive Baptist churches in Tennessee, Georgia, and Texas. She was a long time member of Grace Primitive Baptist Church in Loudon, TN, and was one of the charter members. She was preceded in death by her husband, Elder Charles Taylor, her parents, Newman and Ida Campbell, her step-mother Jane Campbell, her brothers, Bruce and Ray Campbell, her daughter Linda Taylor, her granddaughter Jennifer Brown Reynolds, and her great-grandaughter, Melody Taylor.
She is survived by her sons, Jim (Becky) Taylor, Bill (Pam) Taylor, and Steve (Judy) Taylor. Grandchildren surviving her are Chris Taylor, Jason Taylor, Jeff Taylor, Brian Taylor, and Sarah Taylor, as well as nine great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. Also surviving her is her brother, J.B. Campbell (Unav) of Tarrant City, AL, and several nieces and nephews.
