ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Beatrice Taylor, one of Rockford's oldest residents, passed away last week at the age of 108.

Taylor was celebrated by the Ethnic Heritage Museum just last month as the African American Women in History honoree. She also cast a ballot in her 20th presidential election last November.

Taylor enjoyed watching the Bulls and White Sox, going to the river boat in Joliet, and spending time with her family. She attributed her longevity to healthy choices and enjoying life.

Services were held Friday at Pilgrim Baptist Church.
