(Marjorie Lucille) Taylor
March 15, 1934 –
June 17, 2012
On June 17th our caring and generous mom passed away in Edmonton, Alberta and is now reunited with her loving husband Archie (Slim). A former long time resident of Saltspring Island, mom was known for her volunteerism and active membership with the Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion, as well as an astonishing cook for Friday night suppers. Our mom was an avid believer of making post secondary education available to all and started the “Legion” bingos in order to award bursaries to Salt Spring students. This fund later was named the Jean Taylor Bursary Fund.
Mom leaves to mourn and celebrate her life, her children; Heather (Glen), Shelly (Scott), Allen (Rose) and Cathy (Gord) as well as grandchildren Kristy (Donavan), Jamie, Rob (Karin), Teihl (Marco), Zachary, Joshua, Maggie and Tess. She was known as Gigi to her great grandchildren Cohen and Aaliyah. She was an attentive mother and mentor to several more children who were in need of some love, guidance and attention throughout our childhoods. Always willing to take in, protect and shelter those kids that were experiencing tough times.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Jean Taylor Bursary Fund would be appreciated, care of the Ladies Auxiliary, Royal Canadian Legion, Ganges, B.C. As per mom’s wishes, a memorial to celebrate her life will be announced at a later date to be held in Ganges.
You can only have one mother?Patient kind and true;?No other friend in all the world,?Will be the same to you.??When other friends forsake you,?To mother you will return,?For all her loving kindness,?She asks nothing in return.??As we look upon her picture,?Sweet memories we recall,?Of a face so full of sunshine,?And a smile for one and all.??Sweet Jesus, take this message,?To our dear mother up above;?Tell her how we miss her,?And give her all our love.
