Christine Sue ?T-Shirt? Taylor, 66, walked into the arms of Jesus Friday, October 16, 2015 in her home, with her children and her husband by her side.
Chris was born the daughter of Oscar and Carol (Eckhart) Swathwood on March 2, 1949 in South Bend. She graduated from LaVille High School in 1967.
On December 22, 1969 in Delphi, Indiana, she became the wife of Ronnie C. Taylor, who survives. They became the parents of two children: Jeremy and Carrie Ann.
Chris proudly served in the United States Navy from 1967-1970, where she was a Yeoman. She started on the Eptolant base, and also retired from there. Chris was in charge of all the ships coming and leaving the base. Chris and Ronnie met while both being stationed at Eptolant Base, in Norfolk, VA. When she met Ronnie, she out-ranked him by one rank and she never did let him forget that.
Chris had worked at Fairmont Homes in Nappanee as a front desk receptionist. Prior to that, she worked for Bremen Public Schools as a secretary while Jeremy and Carrie Ann were students at the school.
She was a very caring person, who enjoyed sending birthday cards, encouraging letters to her family and many friends, and recognizing special events that took place. Her thoughtfulness knew no bounds. She loved keep-ing in touch with her friends through Facebook. She was loved & adored by all who knew her and were blessed recipients of her thoughtfulness. She and Ronnie loved cats, and had four that were considered part of the family. Chris also said her ?happy place? was going to Mackinac Island. She attended The Talma Church ?Along the Tippecanoe River,? pastored by her childhood friend Don Nunemaker.
