Gloria May TAYLOR

(1924 - 1988)
Gloria May CUMMING
(nee TAYLOR)
(1924-1988)
Gloria May TAYLOR was born in Brisbane, Queensland, on 15 September 1924.

TAYLOR family oral history records that Gloria's TAYLOR grandparents were standing at the port waiting for the ship to Australia in the 1800s when they decided not to leave the “mother country”. Next to them stood an Irish family called the LAMBs who wanted passage to Australia. The TAYLORs gave their tickets to the LAMBs who arrived in Australia as the TAYLORs. They were so frightened to tell people of their good fortune they retained the name TAYLOR to this day. The truth of this is unclear, and is obviously extremely difficult to evaluate!1

Gloria died on 21 August 1988 in Brisbane, Queensland, at age 63. She was buried at the Buderim Cemetery, 405 Mooloolaba Rd in Buderim.2
