Nadean Taylor Obituary

Nadean Taylor was born to parents, Robert Ervin Henshaw and Lillian Henshaw on April 11, 1932 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1934 she moved with her parents to the Yuba Sutter area where she met and married her childhood sweetheart, Elvin Taylor, to whom she was devoted for 70 years; together they raised two daughters. Nadean passed away peacefully on December 13, 2017, at the age of 85; her family was what mattered most in her life.

In addition to her roles as devoted housewife and loving mother, Nadean was a self-taught interior decorator and custom home painter as well as an excellent seamstress and upholsterer; all of these talents were well known in her community and sought after by many. Together, she and her husband moved to Roseville, CA in 2015 to be closer to their daughters.

She is survived by her husband Elvin Taylor, her daughters Karen Taylor Doran (Steve) of Sacramento, CA and Denice Taylor French (Andy) of Roseville, CA, sister Evelyn Henshaw Holverson (Rex) of Battleground, WA, grandsons Chris Brown of Granite Bay, CA , Matt French (Lisa) of Granite Bay, CA, Sean Doran (Andrea) of Elk Grove, CA and five great grandchildren, Saylor French, Logan Macedo, Ethan Macedo, Aubrey Doran, Zoe Doran and Posie French.

Nadean was preceded in death by her parents and brothers Harold Henshaw and Eldon Henshaw.

It is at Nadean's request that services be postponed until her beloved husband joins her in heaven at which time a joint celebration befitting their eternal love will be announced.
