Marjorie M. Taylor
May 11, 1931 - July 21, 2014
Marjorie M. Taylor, 83, of Kuna, Idaho, passed away July 21, 2014 at a local care home. A service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Monday, July 28, 2014 at Central Valley Baptist Church with Pastor Rocky Mason officiating.
Marjorie was born May 11, 1931 in Glenmary, Tennessee to Raymond and Pearl Young. The family led a hard life but they were close and protective of each other. When Marjorie was 17, before graduating from high school, she met the love of her life, Wiley Taylor. When he would "come courtin'" Marjorie's mom would try to chase him away with a broom.
Marjorie and Wiley married on August 7, 1948. A year later came their first son, with four more children to follow. Marjorie followed Wiley to many states hauling kids, furniture and pets to wherever they needed to be, without any complaints.
Marjorie was a joyful member of the quilting group Nita's Needlers. She looked forward to their monthly get togethers. She shared a unique friendship with the other members. She loved "showing off" her latest creations with everyone.
As the kids got older, Marjorie began working at various jobs. She worked at several shoe stores, then found the job she dearly loved. She worked for many years at Joan's Fabrics. Her job gave her the love of quilting and making beautiful things for her family and close friends. We're sure the back room of the store had a shelf of "fabric on hold" with her name on it!
When Mom could no longer stay home alone, she moved to The Kuna Living Center. There she made many friends and called them her brothers and sisters. Most of all she loved the beautiful young ladies that cared for her with love and affection. The family appreciates everyone that is there.
Our family would like to thank her doctors, Lisa Dockter, Dr. Silva, the wonderful staff on the 4th floor at St. Luke's Meridian and the caring team from United Hospice.
Mom's greatest love was her family. She especially loved Christmas - giving presents and having the drawing for the Christmas Quilt. Mom had great joy watching us in all our achievements. Her grand and great-grandkids brought her much happiness. She looked forward to quilting with her granddaughter Steffani.
Marjorie is survived by Mike (Gail) Taylor of Boise, Bridget (Ron) Watson of Meridian, Rhonda (Ken) Heaven of Nampa, Keith (Julie) Taylor of South Dakota, thirteen grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, sisters Shelby, Mary, and Ethel in California and her brothers Buddy of California and Ralph of Las Vegas. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Wiley, her son Buster, a great-granddaughter and two grandsons.
We will all miss our Mom greatly, but we know where she is!
