Nettie was born in Phoenix, Arizona on January 2, 1948 and passed peacefully with her family in Lexington, SC on December 22, 2022 at the age of 74. She was predeceased by her mother, Sylvia S Robbins and her father, Allen Werner.
She is survived by her adoring husband of 36 years, Jimmie D Taylor; and her three children, Terri Lynn McLaughlin, John JJ McLaughlin, IV with his wife, Ana, and Sage Michael McLaughlin with his wife, Kristi; her stepchildren, Timothy Taylor with his wife, Stacey, and Tara Taylor; her wonderful legacy of 13 grandchildren and two great-grands who loved their “Grandma Chicken;” along with a church family of friends and loved ones from her many years of service in churches throughout the Diocese of Charleston, and her local parish, Corpus Christi.
Nettie spent the early part of her childhood in Phoenix, Arizona, but later moved to and grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. She was an excellent, straight-A student and graduated from Jean Ribault High School with honors and a scholarship to attend the University of Florida. During this time, she converted to Christianity and became a Roman Catholic.
She moved to South Carolina in the early 1970’s and graduated from the University of South Carolina. She worked for many years with SCE&G and her work there encouraged her to return to school to study engineering where in Calculus class, she met the love of her life, Jimmie Taylor. She did not get her Masters in Engineering, but ended up following a call to the ministry and got her Masters in Religious Education from Loyola University. She left behind her secular career and became a Director of Religious Education, feeling this vocation was her life’s purpose. She was also a member of the Third Order of Saint Francis.
Throughout the Diocese of Charleston, in various parishes throughout South Carolina, she was always irreplaceable, doing the work of “at least three people” it was often said. She was very organized and extremely knowledgeable about Church doctrine, history, and liturgical procedure. She was an enthusiastic RCIA teacher, and loved to see people come into the Catholic Church. She was a dear friend, mentor, and confidant to many inside the Church and the parishes where she worked. She tirelessly encouraged her family, friends, and anyone who listened, to follow the teachings of the Church, to seek holiness, and to lay down our lives as an act of worship.
Nettie was a voracious reader with a library to fill a library, was highly intelligent, had an infectious laugh, had a beautiful singing voice and played numerous stringed instruments, and was quick to offer counsel and prayer for anyone in need. She will be missed by so many and the number of lives she touched, inspiring faith in God, will reap benefits for eternity.
A funeral mass will be conducted 11am Friday, January 6, 2023 at Corpus Christi Catholic Church. Burial will follow at Woodridge Memorial Park. The family will receive friends from 6pm to 8pm Thursday, January 5, 2023 at Barr-Price Funeral Home and Crematorium, Lexington Chapel.
