Mary Ann Taylor, 61, of Lumberton, died Thursday, Oct. 11, at her home in Lumberton. She was born on March 3, 1951, in Sour Lake, to Margaret and Perry Lee Williams. Formerly of Pasadena, she moved to Lumberton two years ago. Mary Ann retired (due to illness) after 24 years from Plant Performance Services as a field accounting manager.

She loved cooking, gardening, and writing. Thanksgiving and Christmas were her favorite times of the year for baking. Mary Ann loved to bake and give her goodies to co-workers and friends. She was always in charge of the cooking and loved baking for the family. Mary Ann was good at directing all of us about how to do the cooking. She was an angel baker and baked cookies for the troops each month.

Mary Ann was a very loving and giving person, not only for her family and co-workers, but to everyone she came in contact with. Most of all she loved the Lord with all her mind and soul. Always studying her bible and searching for the truth in God’s Word. She will leave a void in all the lives of those who loved her.
