Taylor was born October 3, 2004 in Albany, GA. Her entry into this world was not an easy one, but just because life may be hard, it doesn’t mean it isn’t worth living. Taylor lived her life to the fullest. Everyone who met Taylor instantly loved her, and she loved them. Taylor’s infectious laugh was contagious. No one could light up a room like Taylor. Though she had limitations physically, nothing hindered her fiery, determined spirit.
Taylor was a 7th-grader at Lee County Middle School West. Taylor loved school! Taylor left such a big impact on her teachers and her schoolmates. She taught them the greatest lesson of all, that with love and acceptance, all challenges can be conquered. Come August, the school just won’t be the same without her.
Taylor was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Richard Davis, and paternal grandmother, Carol Cowan Rumph.
Survivors include her parents Stephanie Davis Rumph (James Creel) and Tommy Rumph (Kelly Thompson), and brother, Cohen Rumph, all of Lee County, GA; maternal grandmother, Mollie Davis, and paternal grandfather, Ralph Rumph, Jr. (Nancy), of Albany, GA; maternal great- grandmother, Lois Westbrook, of Dawson, GA; uncle, Ricky Davis (Brittany), and aunt, Tracy Suber (Britt), from Lee County, as well as numerous cousins.
