Marie Taylor Moise was born in (Jeremie) Haiti on August 26, 1962 to Sophonie and Favard Guerrier. She was the eight of nine children. She completed her secondary education at St. Patrick High School, and also graduated culinary school in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In 1984 aided by Victor Choute, Taylor migrated to Brooklyn New York along with her mother to join her two eldest siblings Vivian and Marie Gerald (deceased). Soon after her arrival, she gave birth to her first child, Vanessa Choute. Immediately after relocating to Stamford Connecticut, she married Jean Marie Moise and welcomed three more children. With her outgoing personality she quickly adapted to the new life in America. Taylor began working as cashier at Amazing Department Store in Norwalk CT. She then went on to complete many business certificates leading to her employment with Bank of America as a teller and later opening her first business (TelecoPlus) in Stamford CT. Not only was Taylor business savvy she was also a woman of many traits. She hosted party events and also sold holiday baskets. In 2003 she relocated once again to Bridgeport CT. Shortly after she began her career as a passionate caregiver, she worked at Honey Hill Nursing home doing what she does best, helping others. During this period, despite her hectic life, she became the voice of the Haitian Community having a talk show on a Haitian TV Channel. In 2007, Marie Taylor was diagnosed with GIST (Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor) a rare stomach cancer. Undergoing major surgery, the physicians at St. Vincent’s Cancer Center were able to remove the tumor. She went into remission for five years. In 2012, the tumor cells metastasized to the liver. She was on chemotherapy treatment for three years, struggling to maintain a normal life. During the summer of 2015 her health took a turn for the worse and unfortunately the treatment failed. By the end of 2015, Taylor was admitted into Home Hospice Care. On the night of March 17, 2016 at 8:10pm she was called home. Taylor made friends easily and was generous with her time and resources. She was generous with her advice if needed and expected it to be followed when given. If something needed organizing Taylor was eager to do so. She was a go-getter in every aspect of the word and possessed an endless amount of energy. That’s why it was so sad and frustrating to see this very active person in the prime of her life struggle with this horrendous disease. Taylor will be greatly missed by all her family and friends who loved her dearly. Marie is survived by her mother, Sophonie Moise; her four children, Vanessa Choute, Samantha Moise, Jamie Moise and Shaquille Moise; her five grandchildren, Aniya, Amiya, Armoni, Alyssa and Clifford, Jr. (C.J.); her siblings, Vivianne, Darlene, Nelia, Nadia and Fritz, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, Favard Guerrier and two brothers and a sister. Marie’s family will receive the sympathy and condolences of friends and family on Saturday, March 26, 2016 from 8:30am to 10:30am at Bosak Funeral Home, 453 Shippan Ave., Stamford, CT 06902.
