She is survived by her husband of 21 years, Steven Rollins; children, Taylor, Steven II, and Ellyanna Rollins; father, Danny (Loretta) Taylor; brothers, Cory (Jess) Taylor and Christian (Jessie)Taylor; and many other loving family members and friends.

Steve, Dan, Cory, and Chris,
Billy and I send our deepest condolences for your loss and are holding you and your families in our prayers. Its funny all of the childhood memories that keep popping into my head of her. I think my favorite was when we were in an outhouse screaming because her brothers were dropping grass and insects on our heads in the dark. There is a special bond in our hearts for our neighborhood friends, through all the good and bad. I know how terribly she will be missed by you all, especially her children. But I know she gave her heart to the Lord Jesus and we can see her again in our eternal life and never have to say goodbye again. One thing I know for certain is that she loved you all deeply with everything in her. Keep sharing that love with each other until you see her again.
Sending virtual hugs and continued prayers.

Praying for all of you're family in this terrible time. I remember all the fun times we had growing up playing at Lawndale on the playground, you was always there for me when i needed a shoulder to cry on, you was always there when i needed to "run away" and always knew what to say. I was just 15 when i had paige and you had just had Taylor momma. We would take the girls to do things together and we created a special bond between those two girls, that they still share to this day. They know no matter where life takes them they will always be able to turn to their childhood friends. And i Thank you for that. I know momma sue and my mom we're waiting with open arms for you. I hope you're family will be able to find peace in knowing you touched so many people's lives. You was definitely one of a kind. The warmest heart and you always found joy in helping others. You will be deeply missed by all that knew you. May you finally be at peace Nikki. Untill we meet again RIP.
