Monique Antoinette Taylor was born September 26, 1974 in Indianapolis, IN to parents Darlene Puckett-Martin and Michael Jones.  She was born with the most beautiful smile.  It was considered to be one of her most treasured trademarks.

Monique was introduced to the Lord at an early age.  While attending Christ Emmanuel Baptist Church she gave her life to the Lord and at age 5 she was baptized.  She loved to worship in the choir, enjoyed participating in church activities and listening to her uncle Mike preach the word.

Monique graduated from Lawrence Central High School in 1992.  She went on to attend Indiana State University and graduated from Ball State University in 1997 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Finance.

During her time at Ball State she was very active on campus.  She enjoyed modeling in fashion shows and attending bible study.  She faithfully joined Union Baptist Church and formed a special relationship with Pastor WJ Jackson.  One of her favorite activities was worshiping in the Voices of Triumphant choir.

As her walk with the Lord continued, Monique’s dedication to the church and community was evident as she volunteered and joined various ministries.  She was a servant leader within the New Hope Great Banquet Community.  As an active member and fellow laborer in ministry, Monique used her gifts whenever she was called.  She often served in the role of spiritual leader, speaker and agape member.  She never shied away from serving her Lord; and always with a smile.  Monique was lovingly known in the community as one who was “always working on being God’s favorite.”

As a faithful member of New Beginnings Fellowship Church, she served in the New Beginnings Kingdom Center Children’s Ministry and recently developed a curriculum that was implemented in 2020.  It was also observed that as a part of her preparation to serve the children, “Miss” Monique as she was lovingly called, was known to pray over each chair.  Monique was a fierce prayer warrior and understood the importance of interceding on behalf of others. Monique didn’t pray because she had to; she prayed because she wanted to.

Monique had the brightest smile and the biggest heart.  Her effervescent glow would brighten any day.  She had such a warm spirit and she never met a stranger.

The two most important things in her life were her love for God and family.

In September of 1991, Monique met the love of her life and high school sweetheart, Michael Taylor and in 1993 that love story culminated in the birth of their son Michael Allen Taylor Jr., while she was continuing her college education.

On January 21, 2000 Monique gave birth to beautiful twin daughters Mickaya Alexandria and Mayana Adelaide Taylor.

This loving family was united in marriage on May 31, 2008.

Monique and Michael, aka ‘M & M’ have loved each other for the last 29 years.  Through good times and bad, they held onto their faith and to each other.  They enjoyed vacations, date nights, and spending time with their children and grandson, Cairo.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us that “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.”  On February 7, 2020 God picked her beautiful flower at the appointed time.

Monique A. Taylor leaves a multitude of loved ones to cherish her memory; her loving husband Michael Allen Taylor, her son Michael Allen Taylor Jr., two daughters Mickaya Alexandria and Mayana Adelaide Taylor; her grandson Cairo Samir Taylor, parents Darlene Puckett-Martin, Michael Jones, siblings; Robert Puckett III (Crystal), Quinton Puckett (Leah), Octavia Puckett, Michael Jones, Love Jones, Aunt- Mary Payton, uncles- Eric Nickleson, Thomas Nickleson (Linda), Maurice Nickleson, Gary Nickleson (Kim), and a host of family and friends.
