On Wednesday, June 17th at 12:20 am, Roshawn Denise Taylor, a loving mother, daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and friend was called home to be with the Lord. Born April 15th 1969 to the late Patricia Ann Taylor and Curtis Phelps Taylor in Norfolk, Virginia.
Roshawn was educated at Maury High School and attended the Chesapeake Job Corps Center in Harbors Ferry, Maryland. Even though she was an only child, Roshawn loved to hang with all her cousins and play bingo and spades. All her cousins were more like brothers and sisters than cousins. Roshawn was also a die-hard Redskins Fan and loved her team win or lose and loved entertaining family and friends at her home. Especially when hosting sleepovers for her younger cousins.
Roshawn also briefly had a babysitting business and was a good mother figure for the children she watched. She always tried to take care of things on her own telling people “ I got it, I got It” anytime someone asked to help her. We will all miss her big heart, smile, and her laugh. She will truly be missed.
