Mildred Alice V. Constant-Taylor, 83, born in Cleveland on July 29, 1935,, passed away on Sunday, July 7, 2019. 

She was born to the late Eva Lois Peters-Constant and George Elvert Constant, and was also preceded in death by her daughter, Hylane Finley; her husband, Willie James Taylor; sisters: Mary Constant, Goldie Whaley; and her brothers: Marshal Smartt, William Constant, Gary Constant, and Charlie Johnson. 

Mildred accepted Christ at a very young age, and became a member of  A.M.E. Zion Church. She later moved her membership to St. James CPCA. She was a graduate of College Hill School and was employed with Magic Chef Inc. She retired from Duracell, and was a community beautician. 

Mildred, was affectionately known to many as “Sister.”  Her lively, high spirited personality and her love for people led to her having many friends. 
She enjoyed shopping, was a very stylish lady who had a love for her high heel shoes. Her favorite color was blue. Because of her loving and giving spirit, most of the shopping she did was to bless others with a gift.
She enjoyed time with her children and keeping company with her family and friends. She was adamant in her conversation about being 83, and having the ability to walk so many miles, exercising daily and dancing.

She leaves to cherish her memories, her children: Vanessa (Reginal) Howell, Shannon (Carlos) Jones, Alveraz (Loretta) Constant, Ryan Taylor, and Reginal Constant; 12 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; sister, Lorraine Mastin; brother, Robert Constant; her special aunt, Adella Jones; sister-in-law, Linda Smart; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, other relatives, her church family, her friends she shared brunch with on Fridays, friends from Duracell, many devoted and lifelong friends, and other friends too numerous to name. 

 She will truly be missed by many.

Family and friends will meet Friday, July 19, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. for a graveside service at the Chattanooga National Cemetery.
