Susie Hall Taylor, age 92 of Waycross, GA, died Sunday evening, April 15, 2018, at the Hospice Satilla Hospice House following an extended illness.

Born April 18, 1925 in Waycross, GA, she was a daughter of the late John Ashley Hall and Mary Elizabeth Bowman Rykard Hall. After her graduation from Wacona High School in 1944, she enlisted in the Women’s Army Corps during World War II. As a WAC, she served as a medical aide and attained the rank of Sergeant. Service to our country was a source of great pride for her.

Susie lived in New Hampshire, where her two daughters were born. Later she moved to Jacksonville, FL and lived there for seven years. She then returned to Waycross where she worked as a nurse’s aide at Memorial Hospital. She also worked as a clerk for S & H Kress in Waycross and Standard Container in Homerville. She spent many summers in Maryland with family and was an avid gardener and lifelong artist, winning several prizes over the years for her rustic ceramic designs.

Being an active member of the First Church of the Nazarene in Waycross, she served as leader of the youth group, helped lead the seniors group, taught Sunday School, and sang in the choir. Even after she entered the Pierce County/Harborview Nursing Home, her love for the Lord was her identifying characteristic. Although dementia claimed much of her mind, her love of God was never diminished. In her last days, Susie continued to share with everyone she saw that she loved her family, loved her Lord and wanted to go home to work in her flower garden.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by sisters, Geraldine Gassett and Joyce Dakin, her brother, Isaiah Hall, and a son-in-law, Wallace Bennett.

Survivors include her two daughters, Linda Taylor Bennett of Mershon, GA and Mary Taylor Carnahan (Elden) of Laurel, MD; six grandchildren, Wendy Courson (Bailey) of Summerville, SC, Brandon Bennett (Amy) of Mershon, Julie Godfrey (Ken) of Houston, TX, Andrew Bennett (Ashley) of Mershon, GA, April Albertine (Eric) of Harrogate, England, and Erin Unger (Bryan) of Arlington, VA; 14 great-grandchildren, Chandler Courson of Valdosta, GA, Connor Courson of Summerville, SC, Bekah and Brittany Bennett of Jesup, GA, Alexander and Christian Godfrey of Houston, TX, Chase, Jacob and Maybri Bennett of Mershon, GA, Jamie, Lizzy and Ellie Albertine of Harrogate, England, and Owen and Lily Unger, of Arlington, VA; and several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

A funeral service will take place Tuesday, April 17th at 4:00pm in the chapel of Hart Funeral Home. Burial will follow in the Ramah Cemetery.

The family will receive friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Hospice Satilla, 808 Evergreen Way Waycross, GA 31501 or Ramah Cemetery Foundation, Inc., 3434 West Horseshoe Road Blackshear, GA 31516.

I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. I hope you may find comfort at Revelation 21:4, “And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” We can look forward to the time when God will take away all reasons for distress and he even gives us a hope of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15) If you’d like to learn more about this beautiful hope, feel free to visit
