Minnie R (Taggart) Matthews

December 29, 1915 ~ May 22, 2022 (age 106)


Minnie Taggart Matthews was born on December 29, 1915, in Abbeville, South Carolina to the now late Walter and Georgia Taggart.  She departed this life peacefully on May 22, 2022, at the age of 106 years at High Point Medical Center with her daughter by her side.

Minnie graduated from Abbeville County High School and continued her education in Baltimore, Maryland.  She was a Red Cross First Aide Instructor and held a certificate in Red Cross Nursing in the state of Virginia. She also held certificates in private duty home nursing while in Baltimore.  She loved everyone and was liked by everyone who knew her.  Her favorite scripture was Proverbs 3:5, “Trust in Jehovah with all your heart and do not rely on your own understanding.”

In 1980 Minnie and Robert moved to his home state of North Carolina.  Again, because of her love for people, she decided that she wanted to help the sick and became an employee at High Point Hospital and Maryfield Nursing Home in Jamestown.  She returned to private duty nursing before retiring.  After her daughter became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, she of course wanted to share everything she learned with her loving mother.  After coming to know her loving God so well, Minnie dedicated her life to Jehovah God on March 18, 2003, and was faithful until her death.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert L. Matthews.

She leaves to mourn, a loving daughter, Regina Matthews Brown (AL) of Archdale, NC; a sister, Mrs. Lila Christine Fuller (Vernon) of Baltimore, MD; and a host of loving nieces, nephews and friends.

A Service of Committal and Act of Interment will take place at 12 noon, Thursday, June 2, 2022, at Floral Garden Memorial Park, 1730 English Road, High Point, North Carolina.
