Elizabeth Wortor Nimley Taylor – 12/15/1932 to 12/21/2015

It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that the family (Nimley, Barclay, Kofa, Weeks, Gbassagee and Johnson) of Elizabeth Nimley Taylor announces her death in her 83rd year, at approximately 4:40pm on Monday, December 21st at the Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, GA surrounded by family and friends. 

“Aunty Wortor” as she was affectionately called by many, was a kind and loving mother who took care of various children within Africa and the United States. She was everyone’s “Child Care Provider”. Aunty Worter attended the Saint Theresa Convent, worked at Roberts International Airport in the aircraft maintenance unit (as supervisor) and with the Harbel Club House for many years. She resided in Harbel, Firestone. She will be most remembered for how she loved and cared for all. Due to the aforementioned, there are numerous children not biologically related to her; nevertheless, will forever consider her their mother, grandmother and aunt.

Elizabeth Taylor was predeceased by her son: Randall Cisco, her daughter Esther Sammy, grandson Alonzo V., her sisters Swedie Weeks-Johnson, Theresa Nimley and one of her daughters she reared, Cecelia Munah Sonpon. She leaves to mourn her loss: her husband, George Taylor of Monrovia, Liberia; her siblings, Robertetta Barclay, Sarah Barclay Kofa (Abraham), Winston Barclay (Sophie), Dr. MacArthur Wolo (Korlu), Annette Barclay, Hamsey Johnson (Pearline) and Piso Barclay. Also mourning her loss, are her Grandchildren: Leona, Rubell, Shirley, Franklin and Sonnie; children she reared, Jackie, Lovetta, Mike, Saidea, small Theresa and Elizabeth, 21 grandchildren, 1 greatgrandchild, and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins all over the United States and Africa.  

Aunty Wortor will be missed by all, but we bless God for the life she lived; however, she is now free and is with her Maker whom she served diligently.
