Bloria Nean Chandler Taylor was born February 12, 1948 to Gloria Dean Caldwell Chandler Roberts and Robert Chandler, Sr. in Louisville, Kentucky. She was the oldest of their two children.

In her youth, she gave her life to Christ and united with Forest Baptist Church. Educated in the Jefferson Public School System, Bloria graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School. She attended Kentucky State and then transferred to Morehead State where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts Degree. She later continued her education, and obtained her Master’s Degree in Education from Spalding University. Bloria’s education and degrees, warranted her the position of becoming an outstanding Elementary School Teacher for Jefferson County Public Schools.

On March 28, 1993, Bloria was united in Holy Matrimony to Larry Wayne Taylor, and to this union two sons blessed their lives, Terry and Aundray.

Bloria enjoyed working puzzles (not 100 pieces, but 500-1000 piece puzzles) and would spend hours working on them. She evidently had the patience of Job to stay the course. Her brother Robert said:” We played bid whiz and spades, whenever we got a chance. She was always my partner because we hardly ever lost a game.” She was commonly referred to as the “Executioner” because she would organize the cooking for family reunions and set up parties, designating and assigning everyone a job to do, but surprisingly, she didn’t assign herself anything to do. Her contribution to any events was to delegate the work for others to do.

She was preceded in death by her parents, stepfather David Roberts, and husband, Larry. On Monday, September 20, 2021, Bloria Nean Chandler Taylor departed this life. She leaves to cherish her memory her two sons, Terry Chandler and Aundray Chandler, a brother, Robert Chandler, and a cousin who was like a sister, Evelyn Tinker, and a host of extended family and friends.
