On January 8, 1953, Deborah Denice Taylor Phipps was born to Charlie and Lorine McCloud Taylor who preceded her in death.
Deborah received her education at Groveton High School. She worked at several places until she became a dietitian at the state school until she retired. Deborah was known for her cooking, and had made many friends, family asking her to bake them a pound cake, or lemon cake. Deborah would ask her family members and friends “what are you coming up here for?” they would say “you can smell good food a mile off.” We love your cooking aunt Deborah.
