Obituary

Steven Thomas Knight

 
Steven Thomas Knight

Steven Thomas Knight was born to Margaret Ann Knight and the late Joseph Earl Knight in Willingboro, NJ on July 3rd, 1966. Steven grew up in Burlington City and also graduated from Burlington City High School. Following High School, Steven went on to serve in the United States Navy (USS Shasta) for four years followed by another four years in the United States Army (Sergeant Knight). 

 

Steven was a true Dallas Cowboys Fan and his nickname for everyone he encountered was “Boom Howard.” He loved sharing his navy and army stories with any and everyone that he encountered. To know Steven was to absolutely love him. His smile was contagious and he had a heart of gold. 

 

Steven was known to many, if not all, as “Uncle Steve.”  Not only was he a son, but he was also a father, a grandfather, a brother, a nephew, an uncle and a friend. One of his favorite mantras was, “I tell you one thing,” and he loved nothing more than to stick out those three fingers when trying to explain himself. If you knew Steven then you knew what those three fingers looked like and what they meant. 

 

Steven “Uncle Steve” leaves to cherish in his memory, his mother Margaret Ann Knight, his daughter: Danicqua Knight-Chapman and his future son in law: Troy Edmondson Jr., four grandchildren: Jaykwon Edmondson, Tanzania Edmondson, Amari Edmondson and King Edmondson, six siblings: Carla Warren (Zachary Warren), James “Pete” Knight, Lisa Knight, Andrea Knight, Sylvia Knight and Maurice Harris, a host of nieces (great nieces) nephews (great nephews), cousins, his childhood friend Rodney “Tip” Williams, a few close friends “Dan Dan” Hawkins, Michael Hawkins and Curtis Tooles, and his longtime friend Reverend Torrance Lamar Mitchell whom he served alongside in the U.S. Army and a host of other relatives and friends who he loved deeply. 

 

Steven departed this earth on 3/16. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

Tyron Isaiah Hoggard-Thomas

Tyron Isaiah Hoggard-Thomas was born on May 5, 1997 to Michael D. Hoggard Jr. and Tayrn Harris (Thomas) in Willingboro, NJ. Tyron was suddenly taken from our lives on Wednesday, March 18, 2021 at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware at the young age of 23.

 

Tyron graduated from the Burlington County Institute of Technology (BCIT) West campus in 2015, where his major study was Culinary Arts. Upon graduation he enrolled in Burlington County Community College where he completed two years, majoring in Criminal Justice.  Tyron then went on to become a Hornet at the HBCU Delaware State University, where he continued his Criminal Justice major. Tyron was currently in his senior year.

 

Tyron was a special person to all that knew and loved him. Even though he only stood 5’3” tall whenever we would ask him how tall he was, he would reply, “6’9”.  He was the definition of confidence. Tyron developed his love for sneakers at a young age and became a “sneaker head” while in high school. He would attend sneaker conventions and begin trading & selling the latest and most hard to find sneakers. His love for sneakers landed him jobs at Champs, Finishline & JD’s. Tyron’s current place of employment, NIKE inc, was his dream job. Even though he was majoring in criminal justice he always envisioned himself working for the Nike corporation.

 

Tyron always went after what he wanted out of life and never let his struggles with his asthma stop him. He played baseball and wrestled through his childhood and through high school. Tyron was very competitive and loved to talk about how he would beat you on the basketball court and even possibly dunk on you.

 

Tyron had a heart of gold and was always willing to lend a helping hand, as long as it didn’t involve him getting his hands too dirty. He hated having dirty hands. Tyron would always stop by and check on his friends’ parents/grandparents and was constantly calling his siblings and friends to make sure they were good or asking for a “cashapp” blessing.  He was always checking on his 4yr old Niece, Aviana, whom he referred to as “Baaabyyyy”. Even though at times she would tell him she was too busy for him.

 

Tyron leaves to cherish his memories, his mother, Tayrn, his two fathers, Mike and John, his sisters Tiaja and Tyzhe, his brothers, John “Marseph” and Mikal, Eric and Rob. He also leaves behind his grandparents, Mark “Pop’s” & Margie “Youngin”, Mike “Duke” and Wanda and Bettie.  Tyron also leaves to cherish his memories a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

 

Remember Tyron lived his life to the fullest and never let his asthma or anyone stop him from doing so.

 

Celebration of his life will be held 11AM Tuesday, March 30, 2020 at the Restoration Station, Edgewater Park, NJ Family and friends may view 9AM until time of service and Monday evening 6pm-8pm at the TL Hutton Family& Friends Funeral Services 869 Beverly Road, Burlington, NJ.

Obituary

Joan Elizabeth Taylor

Screen Shot 2021-03-29 at 12.52.19 PM.pn
 
Joan Elizabeth Taylor

Joan Taylor was born in Westampton New Jersey on May 20, 1944.  She was called home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March12, 2021.  Joan was the tenth child born to the late Antonio and Pauline Rogers.  She attended the Mount Holly Public Schools and graduated from Rancocas Valley Regional High School in 1962.  After graduating from High School, Joan entered the work force before enrolling as an undergraduate student at Montclair State College in 1970.  She successfully completed her undergraduate studies in 1974; receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology.  Joan continued her education at Rutgers University where she received her Master’s Degree in Social Work on January 20, 1976.

Joan married the late Jesse Taylor in 1963. She was a very dedicated mother to her three children; Jesse, Manuel, and Cathy.  She doted her children almost to a fault; but she evidently knew what she was doing.  She was immensely proud of them as they grew into responsible and productive adults.  Her children indeed did rise up and called her blessed.

Her doting didn’t stop with her children; it continued with her grandchildren.  She simply adored them; and her adoration was reciprocated. Her love affair with her grand-children, and their special relationship was truly something to behold.  Joan did everything within her power to make sure her children and grandchildren were raised to reverence, obey, serve, and worship God in the beauty of holiness.

 

Joan’s educational, professional, and vocational careers covered a wide spectrum.  Her professional career in Social Services took her through various facilities in New York and New Jersey.

In 1987 Joan moved her family to Jacksonville Florida where she expanded her work in the Social Services field.  Never one to just settle for the “status quo”, Joan spent the last 30 plus years impacting the lives of men, women, and children throughout the Jacksonville area.  Whether it was teaching in a public school, a private Christian school, tutoring a young boy or girl Joan impacted the lives of so many!  This continued right to the very end.  When she became ill, she was actively involved in a young boy’s life, tutoring him as she cared for him.  His parents were so comfortable and impressed with Joan’s character and values, that on more than one occasion they asked her to join them as caretaker of their son when they travelled.  Not willing to be away from her children and grandchildren for a prolonged period of time, each time Joan graciously declined their invitations. 

As passionate as Joan was about her vocations and advocations, her real passion was faith and family. They went hand in hand as she prioritized her life activities.  Everything Joan did, however, was dictated by her faith and belief in the Word of God. Studying God’s Word was a huge part of Joan’s life.  On November 14, 2020 she sent a text message to one of her siblings related to a testimony she heard years ago that prompted her to read through the entire Bible for herself.  The following is an excerpt from that text.  “I am now reading through it (the Bible) for the fifth time, and it has been such a blessing.  I take my time and read it at my own pace, looking to know God better and to guide me through life’s ups and downs.  It is invaluable to me.  I love you, Joan”

Joan suffered through the most tragic experience a mother has ever had to endure when her youngest son Manuel was senselessly murdered on October 22, 1993.  She repeatedly said that the Word of God and her faith in God enabled her to endure this tragic and heartbreaking experience.

It was not surprising that Joan would not allow this tragic event to define Manuel’s death.  She made sure that his death would not be in vain; and made sure that the public would know that Manuel Taylor was not just another young black man that was shot and killed. 

She began a passionate campaign against violence and a passionate campaign as an advocate for victim’s rights.  She worked tirelessly and passionately with law enforcement and government officials in her campaign for justice and the recognition that “Life Is Valuable”.  In 1996 Joan was presented the “Citizen Of The Year” award for her “Outstanding Leadership On Behalf Of Victims Of Crime And The Citizens Of Jacksonville, Florida”.

 

Joan’s brothers and sisters will be forever grateful to her for the birthday celebrations she organized each year.  No one was invited except for the brothers and sisters and their spouses.  No exceptions! Joan said that God had given her that vision.  We are all convinced that indeed that vision came from God.  Each year starting with Joe, then Minerva, then Gene, then Barbara, then Marie, then Norman, then Luis, then Brenda, and finally Ronnie.  There were lots of laughs and lots of tears as we celebrated and reminisced our lives growing up together.  Those priceless moments together would have never happened, had it not been for Joan.  It was mentioned to Joan on more than one occasion that we never had a similar birthday celebration for her.  She simply said that she didn’t want us to do it because it was not part of the vision God had given her.  That was Joan being Joan.

 

Yes, Joan was passionate about her relationship with her family and special friends.  But this passion was epitomized in her relationship with her children Jesse, Manuel, and Cathy; and her grandchildren.  She was so proud of them; and they are so proud of her.  It is worth repeating, their love affair and special relationship was incredibly special and something to behold.  And now, her children (and grandchildren) do rise up and call her Blessed!!

Joan leaves to mourn her loss, and celebrate her life, her son Jesse Taylor, her daughter Cathy Taylor, and her grandchildren Manuel Strong, Christopher Strong, Miguel Strong,  Jesse Taylor Jr., Al Cola Twigg, Byron Taylor, and Jessica (Nikki) Taylor.  Also mourning her loss and celebrating her life are her brothers and sisters Eugene Rogers (Beverly), Barbara Perez, Marie Caldwell, Norman Rogers (Lola), Luis Rogers Sr (Mary), Brenda McDaniel, and Ronald Rogers (Pamela); special friends, Gwen Taylor, Donna Neil, Harriet West, Janet Reed, and Barbara Johnson-Thomas; and a host of in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and friends.  Preceding Joan in death were her older brothers Joseph Rogers and Thomas Rogers and her older sisters Minerva Bell and Catherine Rogers. 

Joan was such an unselfish and caring person.  She already is and shall continue to be missed.  Our loss is Heaven’s Gain.

Jannie L. Paige

Jannie L. Paige

REFLECTIONS

THE LIFE OF JANNIE LOUISE CUTTS PAIGE

 

Jannie Louise Cutts Paige, daughter of the late Louise Owens Benn and Raymond Cutts, was born in Winter Park, Florida on February 5, 1928.  She peacefully passed into glory on March 15, 2021 at the age of 93, with loved ones by her side.  

 

Sister Paige and her baby brother who was the apple of her eye, Dr. Raymond Cutts, Jr., walked in mutual love and admiration throughout their lives even as they moved later in life from their birthplace to locations north -  he to Potomac Falls, Maryland, and she to Willingboro, New Jersey.  Sister Paige graduated from Hungerford High School in Eatonville, Florida where she was a soprano in the gospel choir.  Thereafter, she attended Virginia Union University where she was on the Honor Roll, and graduated with a degree in Primary Education.  While at Virginia Union, she was a member of the Jubilee Chorale where her glorious operatic soprano voice continued to blossom, uplift and give God the glory through her rare vocal gift.  She also proudly pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, the oldest Greek-letter organization established by Black college-educated women. 

 

Following college, Sister Paige moved to Washington, D.C. and took a job with the National Security Agency (NSA) where her role at the intelligence/counter-intelligence agency helped to protect the national security of the United States. The exact nature of her work with the Agency will forever remain a mystery to her family and friends given she refused to answer questions about, or otherwise discuss, the work she did while employed by the NSA! 

 

It was in Washington, D.C., on June 15, 1955, that the lovely Jannie Louise Cutts married the love of her life, the debonair Roy Blair Paige of Washington, D.C.  The soon-to-be life-partners would remain devoted to one another through 53 years of marriage, building a wonderful life and loving home for themselves and their three children - Darryl, Billy and Royce.  The earthly bond was broken between Jannie and Roy only upon his transition to Heaven on December 15, 2008.  

 

Sister Paige’s commitment to, and love of, the Lord were cultivated from a very early age.  She accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior when she was a young child in Florida, and remained anchored in the Lord and the church throughout her life, most recently as a member of St. John Baptist Church in Camden, N.J. and previously as a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church in Burlington, N.J.  One of her favorite songs is “Stand” (by Donnie McClurkin).  Sister Paige often recounted that her grandfather, Minister Enoch Owens, regularly preached on and talked with her about standing on the Word of God.  Do your best (ordered steps must be poised and ready to move!), maintain unwavering faith and let God do the rest.  As the lyrics to the song declare - “just stand!”  That’s the way Sister Paige lived her life, and in particular how she pressed on following the death of her beloved husband, Roy.  

 

Following her stint with the Federal government, Sister Paige shifted her career focus to pursue her true passion of educating children.  She would thereafter become, in essence, a lifelong educator, teaching first grade for 30 years, dedicating most of those years to students in the Willingboro School District.  An authentic nurturer (who, despite this virtue, never suffered foolishness, from children or adults) with a keen intellect and a seemingly endless reserve of fortitude, confident dignity, compassion and empathy, she was blessed with the ability to connect with young hearts and minds, positively impacting forever the lives of those she touched.  Although Sister Paige retired in 1992, her family continues to hear from former students extolling the virtues of, and sending warm regards to, “Mrs. Paige, my first-grade teacher!”

 

God used Sister Paige’s gracious spirit to touch the lives of countless young people not only in the classroom, but also in her own home by speaking-life into and inspiring her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, as well as their friends and neighborhood young people who spent hours in the Paige home interacting with Mrs. Paige and her husband, Roy B. aka the “Mayor of Willingboro.”  Great conversation (from the serious to the sublime), good-eats, lots of sports on the television and plenty of laughs were on tap for those who hung out at the Paige home.  Little-known fun fact about Sister Paige - she had a great (sometimes wicked) sense of humor, and she loved to laugh.  Her reserved demeanor belied that fact for those who may not have known her well.  Also, if you swung by the Paiges’ home on any given Sunday, you best believe you were in for a healthy serving of Mahalia Jackson on the turntable - Sister Paige loved Mahalia!

 

Sister Paige loved deeply, consistently and loyally.  She was fiercely devoted to her family, and took the utmost delight in spending time with them, especially spoiling her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Many enduring family traditions originated at “Nanny and Pop-Pop’s” house, a family favorite of which was “Friday Night Spaghetti” - spaghetti was one of Pop-Pop’s culinary specialties.  Nanny relinquished the kitchen to Pop-Pop after he retired and she continued working.  This suited Nanny just fine, even after she retired. 

 

We count ourselves blessed to have been touched and impacted by Sister Paige’s steadfast faith in the Lord, as well as her boundless and consistent capacity to love, nurture, uplift and guide throughout the years.

 

To cherish her precious memory and carry on the proud Paige legacy, Sister Paige leaves behind children, William A. Paige and Royce A. Warrick; son-in-law, Bryan A. Warrick; daughter-in-law, Margaret L. Paige; 10 grandchildren - Darryl A. Paige, Jr., Taryn M. Paige, Tajuana N. Paige, Julian T. Paige, Blair A. Warrick, Jordan N. Paige, Sheree E. Paige, Jasmine A. Paige, Taylor P. Warrick, Peyton M. Warrick; five great-grandchildren - Anaia N. Paige, Makayla P. McKinney, Brayden A. Paige, Isabella A. Paige, Ronald C. Conner, Jr.; daughters-in-love - Rosalind Davies, Chantal Paige, Daisy Paige, Patricia Paige; sisters-in-law Mary Frances Brooks and Carol Cutts; brother-in-law Russell E. Brooks, Sr.; and a host of nieces and nephews and other treasured relatives, loved ones and friends.  For those loved ones who pre-deceased Sister Paige, including her husband, Roy Blair Paige; son, Darryl A. Paige, Sr.; Mother, Louise Owens Benn; Father, Raymond Cutts; brother, Raymond Cutts, Jr.; Step-Father, Leonard Benn; Mother-in-law, Maudina Brooks; Father-in-law, William Paige; sisters-in-law, Rebecca Brooks, Ellen Corbin and Rosa Tate; brother-in-law, Alfred Corbin, Sr.; and nephew, Alfred Corbin, Jr. surely there was rejoicing in Heaven as they met Sister Paige just inside the gates

Jannie L. Paige, departed this life on Monday, March 15, 2021. Celebration of Life for family only will held Monday, March 22, 2021 11am at the TL Hutton Family & Friends Funeral Services, 869 Beverly Road, Burlington, NJ.  Family & friends may participate in a walk through viewing 10am -11am.

Deacon Lloyd Eric Griffith Sr.

Deacon Lloyd Eric Griffith Sr.

His Directive

Deacon Lloyd Eric Griffith Sr. was born April 14th 1931 in Triopath, Saint Andrews Barbados to the late Osbourne Wilkinson & Clarice Alinda (Gill) Griffith.    He was the 3rd oldest of seven children born of this union.  He was married to his late wife Mattie Griffith for 52 years.  Lloyd would recount his younger days and how he lovingly remembered his mother and how she would tenderly share with her neighbors and family what little they had.  Those values and love were represented and taught within the Griffith household.  Our father worked 7 days a week and sometimes 10-14 hour days to provide for his family.   To say that he was a hard worker does not even begin to capture his dedication and commitment to his family.  He worked for several years at Glidden Paint Company before moving onto Sybron Chemical Company where he retired.  Even after his retirement, he took a position with Buttonwood Hospital and worked there for several years before permanently retiring.  As children growing up, if you ever heard “Wait until your Daddy gets Home”, you knew that you were in deep trouble.  However, He disciplined us with great patience and wisdom.  On one such example, he used the representation of the chicks or baby birds and how they were dependent upon the parents to bring food back to the nest.   He likened that to our Mother and gave us guidance in respecting her and loving her for all that she did for us.  That was his way, simple but profound with always a reference to GOD’s great love.   Similarly, he took Mom to church every Sunday morning and they would pray together before anyone else arrived.  Even after her departure, he would still open the church up every Sunday morning and pray and get it ready for the parishioners.   Even now, he has paved the way to show us how to be more loving, caring, patient, forgiving, respectful, and dependent upon HIM, that is able to keep us from falling.

Dad leaves behind to cherish his memory four brothers, Ruben, Leonard (Yvonne), Ronald, and Samuel; eight children, including three sons, Frank Davis Jr. (Tameko) of AL, Lloyd Griffith Jr., and Samuel Griffith (Belinda), of NJ; five daughters, Laverne Henry (Harold-deceased) of FL, Gwendolyn Griffith-Marrero (Joseph), Francina Kemp of NJ, Shirley Griffith of HI, and M. Cathy Griffith of NJ.  In addition, he leaves eighteen grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren, one great great granddaughter and two great great grandsons: and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends

Life Celebration services will be held on Saturday, March 13, 2021 10 AM at The St. Mark Baptist Church, 545 Lakehurst Road, Browns Mills NJ.

Robin Lynn Hallett

“Ms. Fabulous”

Robin Lynn Hallett was born October 22, 1959 in Princeton, New Jersey to the late Pearlymae Wright and Leroy K. Hallett Jr. To most, she was known as “Robbie,” “Boobie” or “Aunt Robin“. She entered Heaven’s gates on March 5, 2021. She was preceded in her death by her mother, Pearlymae Wright, her father, Leroy K. Hallett Jr., step-father, William C. Wright, her grandmother, Hannah “Grady” Spearman, her brothers, Kevin and Leroy Hallett, one sister, Alrita Bennett, and one niece Erica Rucker.

She retired from the State of New Jersey in 2015. She also had a love for crafting and event planning.

Robin had a vibrant personality and a heart of gold. She was always the most fabulous person in the room and truly dressed to impress.

She graciously helped anyone in need and always went that extra mile to make her family and friends feel special.
