I have fought a good fight… I have finished my course…I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me that day (II Timothy 4:7-8)… Mother Jannie Taylor earned her crown on Thursday, December 12, 2019 at her home on Bay Road in Britton’s Neck, SC.
