MOUNT VERNON — Anne E. Taylor, 91, Mount Vernon died Wednesday, April 21, 2010.
She was born Feb. 14, 1919, to parents Harry and Louella Adams in Saxton, Pa., and later the family relocated to Mount Vernon, where Anne met her husband, Charles (Charlie) Bentley Taylor.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband and soulmate, Charlie; and son, Charles David; parents; brothers, Arthur and Earnest Adams; sister, Regna Butler; nieces, Jerry (Jim) Crunkilton and Barbara Blackford; and numerous friends.
She leaves her daughter, Kathryn (William) Glynn of Columbus; granddaughter, Marty (Rich) Murphy; grandchildren, Drake and Glendora Anne of Larkspur, Calif.; great-nieces and nephews; many friends in the Mount Vernon community and friends at Whispering Hills Care Center in Mount Vernon.
Anne and Charlie were active members of the Episcopal community for many years where Charlie served on the vestry and Anne was church secretary. After Charlie’s death in 1971, Anne briefly relocated to Columbus and worked for the Ohio secretary of state. Her love of Mount Vernon brought her back where she worked variously at Moundbuilders Guidance Center, the Mount Vernon Developmental Center, and, after retirement, volunteered at hospice services — Anne’s was a service centered career path. She enjoyed politics, reading, needlework, quilting, lively conversation, animals (particularly cats), family vacations at Harmon’s Harbor Lake Erie shared with dear friends David and Marion McCluskey and their children, and later, while Charlie was still living, summer trips to the Maine coast with dear friends the Rev. William and Ethel Haas. Her life was hallmarked by love of family, community and animals.
The family requests that donations be made to the Knox County Humane Society in celebration of her life.
A private family graveside service will be held at a later date.
