HOME GOING CELEBRATION FOR
ANNIE RUTH TAYLOR

Annie Ruth Taylor (nee Anthony) was born as the only girl to the union of the late Charles and Addie Anthony in Griffin, Georgia on November 11, 1926.

Annie Ruth (affectionately called Ann or Aunt Anna Ruth) moved to Cincinnati with her Aunt at an early age. Later, her parents and brothers moved to Cincinnati to live a better life and be with her. Her Mother died when she was 14 years old and she was raised by her Father and older Brother, Charles (Red) Anthony. Her brothers had a protective look out for her, but knew that she really could handle her own. She feared no one and not even them!!

Ann grew up in the West End and was well known because of her unusual beauty. Her infinite beauty and shape as a teenager resulted in her winning a beauty contest at the old Crosley Field. This attracted and begin the courtship and marriage to the love of her life, her Husband, Herman Taylor. Ann and Herman were married for 72+ years before his death approximately six months before her death. This union brought to life their only child, Albert Taylor (Butch).

Ann worked at Lyttons as an elevator operator and at Shillito's Department Store in the beauty salon for a while before deciding she would rather be a homemaker and an at-home Mother and Wife. She was an excellent cook and homemaker. She took pleasure of cooking Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners that lasted all day long for relatives and friends who would drop by.

Ann enjoyed listening to old music and blues, especially with her Sister-in-Law, Bunny. The two of them enjoyed dancing and clowning, especially at the Family outings. She also enjoyed going on casino trips with her niece, Sherry and Charlene. She loved her Manischewitz Black Berry Wine! You could hear her saying, "Don't touch my wine".

Ann Taylor was preceded in death by her loving Husband, Herman Taylor; her parents, Charles and Addie Anthony; her brothers, Verlin, Charles and Leroy Anthony.

Ann leaves behind to cherish her fun-loving memories her Son, Albert Taylor (Carolyn) her grandchildren, Yvette Taylor, Keisha Crosby (Adrian), Kimberly Taylor and Tommy Taylor; seven great grandchildren; a Brother-in-Law, Willie Taylor (Irene)of Chicago; sisters-in-laws, Ethel (Bunny) Anthony and Alice Taylor and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
