Audrey C. Taylor, teacher, activist in GOP, dies at 75


April 27, 1991

Audrey C. Taylor, whose varied career included stints as a Baltimore elementary school teacher, Baltimore Election Board official and Republican Party activist, died at Bon Secours Hospital April 8 of kidney failure. She was 75.

A resident of Northwest Baltimore, Mrs. Taylor graduated in 1933 from Frederick Douglass High School and two years later from Bowie Normal School, now Bowie State University, as well as taking courses at what is now Morgan State University.

For about 10 years, she was an elementary school teacher in Dorchester and Anne Arundel counties.

She was an organizer and adviser of the West End Republican Club and the first vice president of the City-wide Republican Club. She also was a former member of the city's Republican Central Committee and the first woman to serve as treasurer of the Republican City Committee. In 1968, she was a delegate to the Republican National Convention in Miami.

As an outgrowth of her political activity, she became supervisor of the master files department of Baltimore's Election Board, where she kept track of the city's registered voters for almost 20 years, up to 1980.

Mrs. Taylor was a lifetime member of St. Paul United Methodist Church, where she held a host of posts: usher, choir member, Sunday school teacher, Bible school teacher, counselor to the Methodist Youth Fellowship and charter member of the United Methodist Women of St. Paul.

Her husband, insurance agent Glenton T. Taylor, died in 1958 at age 58.

Surviving are her daughter, Glenda D. Taylor of Baltimore; and one grandson, three granddaughters and one great-granddaughter.
