Obituary for Ms. Jakara Latoya Reed-Taylor

November 1, 1979 - July 10, 2020
Panama City, Florida | Age 40

Loving Mother, Daughter, Sister, Auntie & Friend


Ms. Jakarta Latoya Reed Taylor age 40 of Panama City, FL passed away Friday July 10th at the Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in Panama City, FL, surrounded by her loving family.
On November 1, 1979, a beautiful flower began to blossom beginning the life of Jakara LaToya Reed-Taylor. She was the youngest child of the late Arthur and Effie Reed in Panama City, Florida.
She accepted Christ at an early age. She was active member of McQueen Temple First Born Church. She later joined New Bethel Missionary Baptist church under the leadership of Pastor Parnell Smith, Sr. where she served faithfully as the Assistant Director of New Bethel Academy.
LaToya as she was affectionally known to many: was a very friendly person; always displaying a ready smile. LaToya had a love for people, a positive attitude, and a great sense of humor. To all that really knew her loved her for the beautiful person she really was. She proudly graduated from Vernon High School in 1998. After graduation, she married James Taylor II and to that union she was blessed with a loving, beautiful daughter who she cherished to her dying day. Nyra was and always will be her mother's true love.
On July 10, 2020, Jakara stepped on board the sweet chariot to be carried gently to that peaceful shore.
She leaves to cherish her memories: daughter Nyra Danielle Taylor of Panama City, Fl: three brothers: Pastor Arthur Paul (Evangelist Sigrid) Reed, Jr. of Marianna Fl: Cornelius Andrae (Kimya) Reed of Panama City, Fl: Eric (Lola) Lampley of Chipley, Fl: nine nieces and nephews Yasmine, Brian, Marcus, Destini, Keonne, Shamari, Omari, Amber and Eric; and a host of aunties, uncles, extend relatives, and friends and a devoted friend, Steve Cumming.
