Known as an extremely hard worker, she courageously raised three children as a single mother. She was an active member of First Baptist Church, Florence where she volunteered every Tuesday at the food pantry. Her retirement date from Wynn-Dixie, where she served in the customer service department, was the same day that hurricane Katrina hit the gulf south. After retirement from Wynn-Dixie, she worked eight years at Jackson Data Products. Her determination and courage were demonstrated during her successful battle against colon cancer. Her friends and neighbors will remember her for her expressions of love by cooking them meals and baking them cookies and cakes. Her generosity led her to cook lunch every day for her neighbors who were not able to cook for themselves. Her children remark, that her kitchen looked like a catering business. Mrs. Taggart was preceded in death by her husband of nine years, Billy Ray Taggart; and, her parents, Daniel “Dan” McCain and Ivor Holcomb McCain. Those she leaves behind to cherish her memory include: her son, Tim (Kristie) Gardner of Florence; daughters, Kimberly “Shea” (Charley) Barry of Canton, NC, and, Angela Carol (Scott) Burkett of Marion AR; a brother Leon (Minnie Fay) of Monroe, LA; a sister Marie Taylor “Aunt GG" of Crossett, AR; ten grandchildren, Jena Leonard, Chris Kugler, Eric Turner, Lauren (Zach) Mason, Sydney Pyles, Jacob Gardner, Jake Pyles, McKenzie Pyles, Margaret Burkett, Jackson Burkett; and five great grandchildren, Lydia Turner, Owen Turner, Levi Mason, Rosi Kugler, Raik Kugler
