In November 2021, Taylor disclosed that she had terminal lung disease and was given a life expectancy of only one to five years. In the same Facebook post, she stated that, given her long history of smoking, she had prepared herself for the diagnosis.
In 2022, as she continued to struggle with lung disease, the drummer entered a hospice.
The drummer underwent brain surgery in 1989 due to a brain aneurysm she suffered from, in addition to her lung ailment. She made it through the emergency medical situation, but following the operation, she began having seizures.
Taylor’s family has not yet announced the specifics of her funeral or memorial service. The plot is still unfolding.
