She departed this life and entered into eternal rest on March 18, 2022. Sister Mary Thompson was educated in the Proctorville High School. She was second highest in her class and was elected as Salutatorian even though she went to school late because of having to work in the fields. Sister Mary met Alexander Taylor and they entered into holy matrimony on December 23, 1962. They lived in New York City and after many years moved back to North Carolina. She was employed as Payroll Secretary at Universal Packaging Company now known as Graphic Packaging International Company of Lumberton North Carolina until she retired. Sister Taylor accepted Jesus Christ into her life and joined New Hope Missionary Baptist Church. Sister Taylor was sick but she made sure that the church books were balanced to the penny and all church records updated and filed. She was a dedicated and faithful disciple even when her health declined. She served as Church Secretary, Pastor Aide President, in the Finance Ministry, on the Usher and Kitchen Ministries, Senior Choir Treasurer and Parliamentarian. Even though her voice was soft and kind, she was able to keep order by reminding the choir members that our service is to God and not to man. She served the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church Family with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.
