Nancy "Deanna" Taylor Rushing

of Harrison, AR

February 26, 1938 - February 14, 2024

Nancy Deanna Taylor Rushing, of Harrison, Arkansas, was called home on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, at the age of 85. She was born in Snowball, Arkansas, on February 26, 1938, to Seymour Taylor and Floy Phillips Taylor, the youngest of 10 children. Nancy grew up in a time when families enjoyed close relationships, she was well loved by her brothers and sisters, and her many cousins. She was a devoted Christian which was evident in how she cared for others.

Nancy left Arkansas after graduating from Marshall High School, moving to California where she made her home for many years. While there, she worked in the banking industry, in real estate, designing jewelry and eventually owning her own jewelry business in Palm Desert, California. While the life she lived in California was exciting, she never forgot her roots and eventually moved back home to Arkansas to be close to family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Seymour & Floy Taylor; 8 siblings, Montine (Taylor) Brown, Troy Taylor, James Taylor, Claude Taylor, Alma (Taylor) Rea, Novel (Taylor) Evans, Syvilla ''Pat'' (Taylor) Hines, and Delno Taylor; and the ''love of her life,'' her husband, Louis Howard Rushing.

Nancy is survived by her sister, Fontilla (Taylor) Halstead of Simi Valley, California; a host of nieces & nephews who adored their Aunt D, and many special cousins & close friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2024, at 11:00 a.m., at the Snowball Baptist Church.

Cremation interment is in Snowball Cemetery,

We lost a special one when God took Deanna home. She was beautiful inside and out .
I know she is rejoicing in heaven with all of our family who is in heaven with her now.
She was a special cousin to Daddy and she loved her family. We were blessed to have her.
