On December 22, 1939, in Lugoff, South Carolina, God graced the late Major and Bessie Bennett with a precious daughter named, Lenora Anita Bennett. Lenora received her early religious training at Sutton Branch Church where she became a member. She was a graduate of Jackson High School. After graduation, she moved to New York City where she attended Taff Business School and Lehman College. While in New York, she met, fell in love and married the love of her life, Wilbert Taylor. Her caring and compassionate spirit led her to care for others all of her days. Lenora was employed at Chock Full O Nuts in New York City. Returning to South Carolina, she worked for the Department of Mental Health, Clemson Extension and continued her membership at Sutton Branch Baptist Church.
On Saturday, December 11, 2010 at Palmetto Health Baptist in Columbia, South Carolina, God in his perfect wisdom saw His child weary and tired from her years of fighting. He kept His word and she transitioned from this earthly home to her heavenly home in glory. Her years of dealing with her earthly body are no longer. God restored her to a perfect body, one without pain and suffering.
