Eva Jo Taylor

Evangelist Eva Jo TAYLOR
81, Tacoma, WA, went home to be with the Lord on September 4, 2019. Evangelist Eva Jo Taylor was born September 22, 1937 in the State of Texas to Ms. Myrtle Cline-Pate and Mr. Eulysee Lee.
Evangelist Taylor received her formal education in the public school system of Texas. She married Elder Eugene Taylor in April of 1958, in Chicago, Illinois. God blessed that union with six children. She was a dedicated family woman and church worker that loved the Lord. She always made sure that all her children knew of God, his ways, and if we stepped out of line, she would always say that is not of the Lord. If you were to call her and ask for advice, her first response would always be what does the bible say about that. She was a loyal, faithful, devoted, mighty prayer warrior. If she could not make it out to noon day prayer, she would lock herself in her bedroom and pray, pray, pray for what would seem like hours as a kid. She would be praying, calling on the name of Jesus. She worked faithfully as a 1st Lady by her husband’s side in the vineyard for the Lord for over 30 years. Her work along with Elder Eugene Taylor has been a blessing to her family, the community and the people of God.
