Tahlea Claytor


Tahlea Michelle Claytor graced the world with her presence on September 8, 1975, a beautiful, sweet, brown baby girl. She took her rest on March 8, 2022, surrounded by her closest loved ones. Born to Ms. Toya Cobb, Tahlea was educated in Columbus Public Schools. A proud graduate of East High School and Fort Hayes Career Center, she graduated at the top of her class, a state tested nursing assistant. A natural and compassionate caregiver, she served in this role for 12 years.

Tahlea received Christ at an early age and was a baptized and faithful member of Higher Ground Always Abounding Assemblies. She loved church and participated in altar-call faithfully.

A true socialite, Tahlea loved and appreciated spending time with family and friends. A well-known worshipper with a big heart, knack for dominoes and a love of scratch-offs she never hesitated to lend a helping hand.

A die-hard fan of The Ohio State University, she loved supporting the scarlet and gray especially against Michigan, the favorite team of her Pops Randy. A house divided; the rivalry is one they both cherished while vigorously cheering for their beloved teams. Strong willed and self-reliant, Tahlea maintained her household independently for the last 17 years after battling multiple health challenges.

Tahlea is preceded in death by her father, Earl Eugene Wiggins; pops, Roosevelt “Pops” Cobb; brother, Frank Coleman Claytor Ingram; loving grandparents, Eddie and Bettye Jo Mayo, and Mary Coulverson.

Tahlea leaves to cherish her memory, devoted mother, Ms. Toya Cobb; special family memberts, Ronald E. (Toby Coleman) Harris, Jr., Dietra Powell, Joseph Powell, Mona Milner, and Shavon Wiggins; and a host of uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Visitation 10:00am and Funeral 11:00am Wednesday, March 23, 2022 at Higher Ground AAA, 870 St. Clair Ave.

    My deepest condolences to you and the rest of the family for the loss of Taleah. She was a beautiful and bright child who grew up to become a diamond of a young woman. GOD don’t make no mistakes sister. Just as she was tired, GOD said “no more suffering nor pain my child… go to sleep and rest until my Son CHRIST JESUS returns then so shall ye rise up to hear your name be read from the Lambs Book of Life! Love to you all, Laurie Jean ( aunt, sister,mother and friend)
