May 27, 1942 – January 12, 2020
Marietta Taylor Blevins, age 77, died very peacefully at home on Sunday, January 12, 2020 with her family at her side. She was born to Jessie and Mary Taylor on May 27, 1942 in Kent County, MD. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, William Taylor.
Marietta is survived by her loving husband of 25 years, Wayne Smith Blevins, and her son, Greg Taylor of Abingdon. Also left to grieve her death are several cousins and many friends.
Marietta was a very active member of Southshore Baptist Church in Annapolis, MD prior to moving with Wayne to Abingdon several years ago, where they joined Pleasant View United Methodist Church. Anywhere she lived during her lifetime, it was very important to Marietta to be involved in church.
