Dorothy Stokes Taylor Walters, 100, passed to her eternal reward on July 15, 2017 at Bon Secours Maria Manor, where she has resided since 2011. She was the daughter of William and Catherine (MacIsaac) Stokes of Brooklyn, NY. In 1940 she married Horace N. Taylor, Jr., who preceded her in death in 1947. She moved to Coral Gables, FL with her three daughters, Susan, Barbara, and Peggy from Harrison, NY in 1948. Dorothy married Walter M. Walters who represented the Pan American Division of the U.S. State Dept. in Miami, and as such they traveled extensively to South America and Europe. She was active in the Junior League, Girl Scouts, art museums, and many school and church activities held at the Church of St. Theresa the Little Flower in Coral Gables. Dorothy was appointed a Eucharistic Minister in 1978 and was an active member of the Legion of Mary. She moved to Sun City, FL in 1985 where she became active in the Prince of Peace Catholic Church, and then moved to St. Petersburg in 2000. Walter Walters preceded her in death in 1960, daughters Margaret Taylor-Gomez in 1978, Susan Taylor Yannoni in 1996, and son John Christopher Walters in 2013. She is survived by daughter Barbara Taylor Hartog, 10 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren. The family wishes to thank the staff at Bon Secours Maria Manor for the loving care given to Dorothy over the years; may God bless and keep each and every one of you who made her life full of humor, enjoyment and love. Brett Funeral Home in St. Petersburg is in charge of arrangements. On Saturday, July 22 a Mass will be offered at 11:00 at Bon Secours Maria Manor on Gandy and 4th Street N in St. Petersburg.
