d. March 2, 2022

Taaffe was born “a ray of sunshine” (to quote Dr. Browne Mason our pediatrician) on December 19, 1974, and passed away March 2, 2022 of heart failure caused by anorexia and bulimia. She’s the daughter of Michie McHardy Bissell and Edwin A. Stoutz, Jr. and step daughter of Tom Bissell. She’s the youngest of four children and leaves her sister, Catherine Henderson (Kenny)and brother McHardy Stoutz (Mary)and joins her late brother Clif Stoutz. Taaffe is also survived by her aunts Mary Claire Dean, Sr. Carolyn Stoutz, R.S.M., Susan Karlin, and a host of cousins. Taaffe was predeceased by her grandparents Claire Michie and Dr. William C. McHardy, Jr, Isabelle Taaffe and Edwin Stoutz, uncles William C. McHardy,III, James F. McHardy, and Charles W. Dean ,Jr. Taaffe’s giving spirit and huge heart would light up a room and led her to establish a career in caregiving. She lived in Nashville, Tennessee for many years, caring for retired Vanderbilt professors and their families until she returned to New Orleans to care for her father. Taaffe attended Holy Name of Jesus School, St. Martin’s Episcopal School, and graduated from The Academy of the Sacred Heart. She attended the University of Southern Mississippi where she was a member of Pi Phi Sorority, and later earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. She was called Aunt Fefe by her nieces and nephews, Liam, Mac, Sarah Cate Richie, and Kade Henderson, Reily and Mackie Stoutz and Emma Stoutz. She loved making them happy with gifts especially at Christmas and on birthdays. Taaffe also leaves to cherish her memory her former husband, Mark Dominguez and sister-in-law, Jill Stoutz.
