Marjorie "Margie" E. Taylor, 82, of Villas, NJ, a much loved mom, sister, friend and nurse passed away on Saturday, December 31, 2022, at Pelican Pointe in North Cape May, where she had been cared for after a serious fall.
She was born and raised in Philadelphia. After graduating from Frankford High School, she went on to get her degree in nursing and worked as Head Nurse in the Emergency Room at Suburban General Hospital, in Norristown, PA. She retired as a nurse with the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections at Graterford Prison, in Graterford, PA. This was a career she loved and was proud of, because she was very passionate about the equality of medical care for all people.
She later volunteered her time and talent with Cape Hope, advocates for those experiencing homelessness, and Lower Cape May Regional School, engaging with students considering nursing careers. She was also active in the ACLU and donated to numerous charities including the Wounded Warriors and Saint Jude's Hospital. Those who knew her best celebrated her special whiskey sours, appreciated the countless hand-written cards and notes she would send to everyone (including Barack Obama!) and will always remember the love she had for her seagulls at the bay.
In addition to her parents, the late Joseph and Margaret Elizabeth Moroz, she was preceded in death by her husband the late Captain Milton "Mickey" A. Taylor and a son Timothy J. Lavin, all of whom she loved dearly.
She will be deeply missed by her daughters Donna Lavin fiancee of Glenn Fritz and Diane Gansho wife of Rodney; stepson Mickey Taylor, Jr.; sister Carol Moroz- Henry wife of Dave; grandchildren Miles and Brooke Gansho; Patrick Gallagher; great grandson Patrick Cornelius Gallagher, II; nephew Matt Henry husband of Kristin; and great niece Aanijah. She leaves behind many long-term and special friendships that filled her life with happiness.
Services will be private and at the convenience of the family. Evoy Funeral Home 3218 Bayshore Road North Cape May NJ has been entrusted with arrangements.
