FOX23 reported Monday that 20-year-old Taylor Witcher died after a car wreck near 71st and Elwood streets. The two others in the car with Witcher are showing signs of improvement.
As police investigate the wreck, Witcher’s friends are remembering the person she was. They said Witcher built her life around three things: family, friends and her faith.
Ashley Martin and Aubrey Hall had tears in their eyes as they looked at old pictures. Still, they couldn’t help but laugh.
“She changed the atmosphere of a room when she walked in and when she would smile and laugh,” Martin said.
They described Witcher as the life of the party.
“Taylor would stay the night at my house all the time and it was like having a sister because I didn’t grow up with one,” Hall said.
They said Witcher loved to watch football with her dad and shoot fireworks with her friends. While she liked to have fun, Martin and Hall said her life was also full of meaning.
“She was confident in who God created her to be,” Martin said.
“Taylor loved us so much that wherever we were she wanted to be a part of our lives,” Hall said.
They said Witcher was a person of intention and one of the most selfless people they’ve ever known.
“Whatever it was she just wanted to be sitting there with you. No matter if it was her sitting at my soccer games in 120-degree heat. She showed you how much she really did love you with her time,” Martin said.
Witcher worked in the athletic department at the University of Oklahoma but was studying to go into public relations.
Witcher’s family has set her services for 10 a.m. Friday at Asbury United Methodist Church.
