"If roses grow in Heaven, dear Lord pick a bunch for me, place them in our mother's arms and tell her they are from me. Tell her we love, and we miss her and when she turns to smile; place a kiss upon her cheeks and hold her for a little while. Because remembering her is easy, we'll do it every day; but there is just an ache within our hearts, that will never go away." Author Unknown
Ms. Elouise Taylor Graham, affectionately known as Sister, was born in Walterboro, South Carolina on January 14, 1945, to the late James and Helen Taylor. She attended school in Walterboro. She spent some time back and forth between Miami and Walterboro before moving to Detroit, Michigan and stayed with her Aunt Mary. There, she met and married Cecil Graham and together they raised three children. While in Detroit, she joined the Unity Baptist Church and served on the usher board for many years.
She worked at Mammoth Mall in Detroit, until she moved to South Carolina in March of 1996. As she returned, she became employed with the Hampton Inn, until her retirement in 2004. Her goal for coming back was to help take care of her mother, however; it was evident that she was happy to be home. She would visit everyone, but her favorite was her cousin, Kire. Not only were they cousins, but they also became best of friends, as they would always meet at the same spot on his road. Elouise liked to fish, listen to songs on her record player, and hanging with her family, always reminiscing about the old days.
On Monday: March 14, our mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend departed this earthly life. Preceding her in death along with her parents are: brothers, Lenard, Haskell and Winford Taylor: aunts, Allie Fae, Mary and Nancy: uncles, Peter and Jerry.
She leaves to cherish her memories, three children, Lenard, Allen and Iver, five grandchildren, a brother Harvey (Dorothy) Taylor, a special sister-in-law, Alva “Cha Cha” Gadson Taylor: a special cousin who took care of her Mattie, along with an uncle and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
