Doris Taylor

December 7, 2023

Doris Taylor, 80, of Pensacola, Florida, passed away from this life peacefully, surrounded by family, on December 4, 2023.

Mama was preceded in death by her parents, Evelyn and Chan Harvell; her brothers, Kenneth, Randy, and Larry Harvell; her children, Helen Hughes, Robert (Robbie) Jordan, Dennis (Tracy) Jordan; and grandson, Blake Offutt.

She is survived by her best friend and husband of 42 years, Wesley “Albert” Taylor; her daughters, Cindy Sunday (Karl), and Amanda Offutt (Michael); brother, Ronnie Harvell (Rhonda); the “sister she never had”, Shirley Weaver; and her beloved cat, Buffy. She leaves behind 13 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and 5 great-great-grandchildren.

She will be remembered for being a caregiver to several family members during the last years of each of their lives. She loved singing in church and teaching youth classes. She enjoyed working and retired multiple times before her final retirement in 2020. Until the end, she talked about her desire to be healthy enough to go back to work. She filled her days during retirement with hobbies including bowling, game days with her friends, and crafting with her grandchildren. Her grandchildren fondly remember her for her quick wit, hospitality and her cooking. She was AMAZING!

Special thanks and appreciation to her granddaughter, Jennifer Bailey for checking on her often, sitting with her in the hospital and anticipating and attending to her every need. Thank you to Naomi in MICU at Sacred Heart Hospital for being so kind and loving in her final days.

Services will be held on Saturday, December 9th, 2023 at Final Chapel Funeral Home North in Cantonment, Florida with pastor Raymond Sunday officiating. Doris will be laid to rest at Roberts Cemetery on Creighton Road.

Pallbearers include Mike Bailey, Jonathon Hughes, Chris Jordan, Greg Thompson, Darrel Harvell, Karl Sunday, and Michael Offutt. Honorary pallbearers include Tommy Alford and Brandon Sells.
