Betty Taylor, 91, went home to be with the Lord and the love of her life, husband, John Everett Taylor on April 24, 2018.
Born in Hambleton, West Virginia on April 21, 1927 to Bricey and Arthur Moore, she attended Parsons High School in West Virginia. She married John in a small white church just across the Maryland state line because she was too young to be married in West Virginia. Her lengthy marriage to John, before his passing in 1987, proves love knows no age limits.
Betty committed the bulk of her younger years raising three daughters and had a lifetime love of fishing, cooking, camping, and gardening. She and John were summertime residents of Clearwater Park in Hartville, Ohio, wintertime residents of Bartow and Cortez, Florida, and often spent time “down on the river” with extended family in West Virginia. She was a lifetime member of VFW Post 8975 and served as their President of Women’s Auxiliary for many years. She attended Grace Bible Church in New Franklin, Ohio for many years with her daughter, Betty.
Betty is survived by her daughters, Betty (Paul) Schuckert, Linda (Gary) Stevenson, Brenda (Rod) Reiss; grandchildren, John, Julie, Jenny, Brian, Brad, Barry, April, Aaron, and Nathan; numerous great-grandchildren; and many of her nine siblings.
In honoring Betty’s wishes, a private service will be conducted at Hecker Funeral Home in Uniontown, Ohio on Saturday, April 28th. A Graveside Service will follow immediately at Hillside Memorial Park in Springfield Township.
The family extends their thanks to all the doctors, nurses, and caregivers at Pebble Creek in Akron and Ohio Living Hospice for their loving support while Betty was a resident with them.
Betty will be dearly missed by all those who knew her kind heart.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to: Ohio Living Hospice or the American Cancer Society.
