Marion Taylor

July 29, 2018


Marion Taylor Marion Taylor Marion E. Taylor, 90, of Little Meadows, PA, passed away on Sunday, July 29, 2018 at Endless Mountains Health Systems in Montrose after a short period of declining health.

Born on March 5, 1928 in Windham, PA, Marion was the youngest daughter of William S. and Florence (Finch) Jackson.

She was a graduate of Rome High School, Class of 1946. On Oct. 27, 1946, Marion married Harold W. Taylor and together they celebrated 65 years of marriage until his passing on Jan. 22, 2012.

After their honeymoon road trip to California in 1946, they took over the family farm in Rome until 1966 when they bought their dream farm along the Susquehanna River in Unadilla, NY. They farmed there until retirement. Then they spent many years enjoying winters in Florida.

Marion was the traditional farmer’s wife, a good cook and baker, whose big meals and gatherings with family and friends are a source of many good memories. Besides all the chores of running a big household, she was also able to work in the hayfield when necessary. She was a lifelong NY Yankees fan and listened to games on the radio, later watching them on TV until her passing. Camping with Harold, family and friends in campgrounds in the area for many years brought her life many fun times.

Marion is survived by her children, Deborah A. (Dale) Grover of Laceyville, Diane M. Cecil of High Point, NC, Dr. Philip H. Taylor and his wife, Elizabeth of Milford, OH, and Jeffrey Taylor of Little Meadows; five grandchildren, Amy Spunar of Throop, PA, Tim (Nikki) Grover of Rushboro, PA, Todd Cecil and Stacey Ceil, both of High Point, NC, and Whitney Taylor of Ithaca, NY; five great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband, Harold; her sisters, Junia P. Duffy, Marjorie L. Barnum and Betty Jean Boldman and brothers, John T. Jackson and Walter F. Jackson.

Marion’s cremains were interred with her husband’s at the Rome Cemetery in Rome at a graveside service held on Aug. 2 with the Rev. Dr. Karen Ballard of the First Presbyterian Church of Rome officiating.

Arrangements were entrusted to the Sutfin Funeral Chapel, 273 S. Main Street, Nichols, NY, with special thanks to Jody Cooley.

Those who wish may kindly consider a memorial contribution to your local Hospice Care Center in loving memory of Marion E. Taylor as she greatly appreciated their kindness and help in Harold’s time of need. Also consider in celebrating the life of Marion doing a good deed for a friend or stranger.
