Winnie was born on June 6, 1953, in the serene landscapes of Ashe County, North Carolina, to the late Von Raymond and Ennis Ina Parsons Wyatt. In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by brothers, Gale Wyatt, James “Jay” Vonley Wyatt and half-brother, Gwynn Parsons.

Winnie was a woman of warmth and kindness, a beloved wife, and a devoted mother. She possessed a rare and radiant spirit, described by those who knew her as "one of a kind." Winnie's infectious smile and genuine warmth welcomed all into her embrace, and she never met a stranger.

Crafting was one of Winnie’s hobbies, she enjoyed quilting and making blankets. Winnie found joy in the simple pleasures of life. She loved listening to music and going to church. Evenings spent with her beloved husband; Earl were among Winnie's most cherished moments. Together, they found joy in the quiet comfort of each other's company, sharing laughter, love, and the simple pleasure of watching TV.

Winnie's passing leaves a void in the hearts of those who knew her, but her spirit will live on in the memories she created and the lives she touched.

Mrs. Taylor is survived by her husband, Earl Junior Taylor, one son, Richard Earl Taylor and wife, Tracy of West Jefferson, one daughter, Tracie Taylor and boyfriend, Richie of West Jefferson, her half-brother, Blaine Parsons of Meat Camp, two grandsons, Brandon Kyle Taylor and Joshua Ryan Taylor and several nieces and nephews.
