Sabrina Anne Taylor passed away in the early morning hours of January 24, 2024 with family by her side. Sabrina, or “Sam” to many, was born in Wichita, Kansas on January 2, 1959 to Ed and Hazel Moreland. Sabrina was a trained concert cellist, a true master gardener, and a devoted mother and homemaker. She had a knack for applying 100% of her intellect and talent to every task she undertook. Anyone who knew Sabrina well knew she was a woman of deep empathy and great substance. She was thoughtful, philosophical and always rooted for the underdog.
Sabrina had a mental fortitude and physical grit unlike any other, evidenced by her unyielding ability to fight through a life-threatening liver transplant at age 27, followed by a continuous battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis which made it challenging to do her favorite activities like tennis, horseback riding, and cello. Sabrina fought tirelessly to hold on to her passions for as long as she possibly could.
Sabrina poured herself into her children and supported all of their endeavors with her whole heart. She was married to Dr. James Taylor for 44 years after they began dating in the summer of 74’ at Brevard Music Camp in Ashville, NC. They were together ever since.
Alzheimer’s Disease began to rob Sabrina of her mental acuity over the last four years but what it left, with crystal clarity, was the love and joy she took in her family. She was diagnosed with early advanced colon cancer in March of 2022.
Sabrina is survived by her husband, Dr. James Taylor, her three children, Allie Weig, Tristan Taylor, and Blythe Knickmeyer; her six grandchildren, Shepherd, Charlotte, and Shelton Weig; and Evelyn, Pyper, and Griffin Knickmeyer; and also by her siblings, Mark Moreland, Heidi Baxter, Ian Moreland, and Cicely Dare.
Her loss is profoundly felt.
