Obituary

Victoria Mae Wiggins Taylor, affectionately known as "VT" age 92, was a cherished mother, adorned grandmother, and precious great grandmother departed this life on December 2, 2021, in the comfort of her home surrounded by her loved ones in prayer, as she   entered into her heavenly home with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  She was born November 13, 1929, to the late Eugene and Arlene Wiggins in Enfield, North Carolina.  She was the oldest of the Wiggins clan of eleven children. Victoria accepted Christ at an early age and joined the family church, Ivory Hill Baptist Church, where she began her Christian journey.  She was educated in the Halifax County Public School System, and was always proud that she attended Eastman High School.  In 1947, she married the late Willie Taylor at the age of eighteen and the next year their oldest child was born.  The young couple decided to leave the country life for a better opportunity in the City.  The Taylor family called Norfolk, Virginia home, moving from Chesapeake Manor, Bowling Park, Oakmont North, Tanners Creek, Oakwood, and Tanners Creek Townhomes.  She was predeceased by  her mother and father, ex-husband Willie Taylor;  brothers Benjamin Wiggins and Eugene Wiggins; and sisters Pearline Ratliff and Edna  Mae Joyner.  Victoria retired from the Department of Navy as a food service supervisor in 1999. After retirement, she decided to try something new and followed her love for children as a cafeteria aide at Larrymore Elementary School until 2006.  She was known as a master cook, the family story teller, and matriarch. Victoria was also known for her famous Chicken and Dumplings and Bread Pudding.  She enjoyed fashion, travel, and meeting her friends at Hardee's on Little Creek Road, Golden Coral on Military Highway, and K  & W in Southern Shopping Center. Victoria was a member of New Redeemed Holiness Church, and was active on the Mothers Board until her health began to decline. She leaves to cherish five daughters, Lendora Riddick (Ronald), Doris Wallace, Joyce Moffett (Noah), Rachel Taylor, and Ernestine Weatherspoon (Frank); two sons, Larry Taylor (Dana) and Willie Taylor, Jr.; three sisters Elverda Brooks, Queen Williams, Geraldine Alston; three brothers, George Wiggins, Burnell Wiggins and James Wiggins; 20 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, five great great` grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, lifelong friends, and neighbors.
