Taylor Ashley Plaud

May 14, 2020


Taylor Ashley Plaud, 21, gained her angel wings unexpectedly, Thursday, May 14, 2020, at her home in Fairhaven.  She was born April 27, 1999 in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the beloved daughter of Kelly Tadeu and Matthew Plaud.

She attended Fairhaven High School and graduated from Puyallup High School in Washington state, class of 2017.  Following graduation she returned to her hometown of Fairhaven.

Taylor was a funny, creative soul.  She was passionate about music, listening to nearly every genre, and playing her favorite songs on her own guitar.  She loved to travel, visiting places like Puerto Rico, New Hampshire, and Florida with her family.  She moved cross country only to fall in love with the Pacific Northwest where she dreamed of returning one day.  Cosmetology was Taylor’s creative outlet.  She could create magic with just a few brushes and some paints.   

Taylor loved her family and had deep faith in their infinite love for her.  She is survived by her parents, brother Aiden Leonardo, sisters Kasey and Kylie Plaud and Violet Leonardo, her devoted grandparents, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and stepmother.

‘Compared to your eyes nothing shines quite as bright…. You are not alone’.  Your family lives on in the hope that although your dreams will never be realized here on Earth, you have finally found your peace elsewhere.  Your Nirvana.
