Our loss is Heaven’s gain! Margaret Taylor Melton achieved her Heavenly home on Friday, October 15, 2021, at home with her loving family by her side. Margaret was born in Union County on June 6, 1944. She was preceded in death by her parents, Earl F. and Mae V. Taylor.

Margaret is survived by her loving family of husband, Ronnie Melton Sr. Her sons, Ronnie Jr. (Tiffany), Jesse (Tammy), Zach (Tonya), Andrew (Brianna) and special family member Duane Rape. She was affectionately known as “Nana” to Alyson (Mike), Kaila, Dalton (Kaitlyn), Madison, Annabelle, and Jake. She was a Great-Nana to Shelby. She is also survived by sisters, Frankie T. Long (Eddie) and Dot T. Senter and brothers Dan E. Taylor and Ronald E. Taylor (Maurine).

Margaret was a faithful, loving member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church for more than 40 years. One of her joys in life was singing in the church choir. Margaret had many close friends at Mt. Zion and provided a loving hug to anyone who came near her at church. Margaret was in the first graduating class of Parkwood High School in 1962. Her working career was spent in Secretarial and Administrative positions.

Margaret was very supportive of her children and grandchildren especially their school and sporting events. She always looked forward to the holidays when she would prepare a big feast for family gatherings. A couple of her family favorites were her sausage cheese dip and icebox fruitcake. It didn’t take much to please Margaret as she was content with the simple things in life.

A Celebration of Life Service for Margaret will be held on Saturday, Oct. 23rd at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 6907 Gus Eubanks Rd., Monroe, NC. The family will receive friends from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. with service to follow at 2:15 p.m., with burial in the church cemetery. The family requests in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to the Mt. Zion Baptist Church Building Fund or Hospice of Union County, 700 W. Roosevelt Blvd, Monroe, NC 28110.

The family would like to thank Margaret’s Church family for their prayers and support also Dr. Gregory Brouse and staff from Levine Cancer Institute of Monroe.
