ENID R. TAYLOR, born in Sydney, Australia, passed away on October 31, 2012 at the age of 81 in Summit, New Jersey, after living a fascinating life full of adventures and travel. Together with her husband, Dr. Bruce William (Bill) Taylor, who was a diplomat with the United Nations Development Program, Enid, with her outgoing personality and graciousness, helped to improve the wellbeing of those most impacted by dire poverty in Nicaragua, Nigeria, Ghana, Italy, India, Lesotho and multiple other countries. She loved wild life and birds and cared for a wide variety of animals over her life time. She enjoyed the theater, music and was very knowledgeable about the history of art. A true diplomat, she enjoyed being with people, was at ease talking with anyone whether they were the impoverished of the countries she was living in or prime ministers, kings, queens and celebrities. She was a loyal friend who knew how to entertain. Enid lived the last three and a half years in Summit, New Jersey with her daughter and her family. For three of these years she was completely blind. By showing courage, grace and optimism, as well as by connecting with and helping others, she continued to have a great impact on the lives of so many. She is survived by her son, Martin Taylor of San Rafael, California, her daughter, Wendy Taylor, her son-in-law, John Chiaramonte and her grand-children, Kate Jestin Taylor and Alex Jestin Taylor. A Memorial Service followed by a Celebration of the Lives of Enid and Bill Taylor will be held at Calvary Church, 31 Woodland Avenue, Summit, New Jersey on Friday, December 21, 2012 starting at 3:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Enid Taylor may be made to support the organization that helped her in so many ways and gave her such happiness: The New Jersey Foundation for the Blind, 230 Diamond Spring Rd., Denville, NJ 07834.
