Kathy Goodman Taylor, a beloved wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, and grandmother, was called home on February 11, 2021 at the age of 68.
A celebration of her life will be held Monday February 15th, at First Baptist Church Tallassee at 12:00 in the afternoon. The family will receive friends from 10:30-noon.
Kathy, known as “Mommaw” by the grandchildren she cherished most in the world, was born February 29, 1952. She was married to her Carl Ezra, her great love of 49 years. Kathy never met a stranger, and will be remembered for her generous hugs and constant smile. Kathy found joy in the simple things in life; loving her family, spending days on Lake Martin, and making others laugh with her QVC shopping indulgences.
Kathy was greeted in heaven by her beloved dog Max, who passed shortly before her.
A graduate of Tallassee High School (Class of 1970) Kathy remained connected to her classmates throughout her life, attending monthly lunches with her lifelong friends.
Upon completing high school, she became a dental hygienist and then moved on to become an instructional assistant at Tallassee Elementary. She retired from Tallassee Elementary after 25 years.
Kathy leaves behind her beloved husband Carl along with her children Tammy Knapp (Chris), Travis Taylor (Heather), her grandchildren Carly Williams (Preston), Trent Garnett (Janice Ward), Davis Knapp, Ashton Knapp, Kinsley Catrett (Michael), Seth Harvell, and Ben Riley Harvell, and brother Donald Goodman (Paula).
Mommaw was able to hang on long enough to hear her granddaughter Carly share the news that her first great-grandbaby would be entering the world in August. She was overjoyed and went to meet the Lord knowing her great grandbaby would be a little boy. She was also able to spend time with her foster great-grandchildren, the great joys of her life.
She is preceded in death by parents, James and Mary Goodman, and in-laws Melvin and Hixie Taylor.
She leaves behind a legacy of helping others, and inspiring those who love her to give when they can. Kathy was an enormous advocate for teaching and helping children, and her impact will be felt over multiple lifetimes. Her children, grandchildren, and now great-grandchildren are committed to carrying on her legacy of love, friendship, and devotion to those she loved.
For those who wish to attend, we strongly urge that you please follow CDC guidelines by wearing your mask and practice social distancing.
Death is not extinguishing the light. It is putting out the lamp because dawn has come. –Tagore
