Taylor was a hardworking and selfless person who showed compassion for others without passing judgement. She had a great sense of humor and would use it to make others feel comfortable. Taylor adored her nieces and made it her mission to make them laugh. Her hobbies included watching movies, hanging out with her dogs, Bella and Duke, and reminiscing on fond memories. She could recite a quote from any movie and imitate anyone’s voice and mannerisms. She loved reading books and journaling. Taylor attended Illini Elementary School, Grant Middle School, and graduated from Belleville East High School.
She was preceded in death by her sister, Shannon Christine Allen; her maternal grandparents, Edgar and Patricia McClure; her paternal grandparents, Harold and Hazel Allen; her great-grandparents, Tom and Betty McCormick; and a dear great-aunt, Linda Wright.
