Jaime-Lynn Taylor-Danner

Age: 35 • Williston

Jaime-Lynn Elizabeth-Anne Taylor-Danner was born on February 19, 1980, in Marlton, New Jersey, to Brenda LaVigne and Lawrence Taylor (Rose Staples). Jaime-Lynn passed away peacefully on August 24, 2015, in Williston, Vermont, after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. Jaime-Lynn graduated from Winooski High School, and received her Bachelor of Arts from Johnson State College. Jaime-Lynn worked for many years as a paraeducator at SD Associates, and was recently promoted to Human Resources Coordinator within that company. Jaime-Lynn was an avid supporter of Stand Up 2 Cancer. She was also a vocal supporter of Native American rights and the protection of gray wolves.

Jaime-Lynn's sparkling personality lit up any room she entered, attracting numerous friends that she considered family. A purveyor of fashion, she loved to shop for outrageous and glamorous clothing, particularly corsets and costumes. One of her prized possessions was her eclectic wardrobe, and she wanted to be sure that Brenna, her niece and kindred spirit of fashion and music, inherited it. She hated pants, and only wore them if she had to. She loved Marilyn Manson, the Spice Girls, horror films, romantic comedies, fantasy literature, fairies and anything Celtic. At the age of thirty, Jaime-Lynn decided to become a ballerina, developing a deep love and passion for dance; she showed us all that you can truly do anything if only you have the desire to do so.

She was predeceased by her paternal grandparents, Anne and Richard Taylor, and her maternal grandfather, Harvey J. LaVigne. Jaime-Lynn is survived by her beloved husband, Handsome Will Danner, whom she met five years ago and married this year, an individual as unique as Jaime-Lynn that made her ecstatically happy, never leaving her side during her illness. She is also survived by her parents, her sisters Brandy Hazen (Charles), Angel Taylor (Mark Mumley), Ashley Cordero (Keith), and Eileen Loughman (Gregg), her brothers Ricky Crawford (Shelley) and Lawrence Taylor Jr.(Debbie), her maternal grandmother Bette LaVigne, as well as a loving host of aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and cousins. Jaime-Lynn is also survived by her mother-in-love, Helen Barrett (David Indenbaum), who has continuously provided love and support to Jaime-Lynn and her whole family during this time, as well as her brother-in-love, Jesse Danner, and her father-in-love Jeff Danner. Jaime-Lynn is survived by an extended family of dear friends who truly enriched her life, just as she enriched theirs.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Stand Up 2 Cancer, or to The Vermont Respite House in Williston, VT. Her family would like to thank the compassionate and caring staff at The Vermont Respite House for taking such incredible care of Jaime-Lynn.

A memorial tribute will be held Saturday, August 29, from 4p.m. to 6p.m., at the VFW, 6 Maple Street, Winooski, VT, 05404. Following the tribute, there will be a celebration of her life. A celebration that will be outrageous, just like our fabulous JLT.

Remembering Jaime-Lynn 5 years after her passing- I mean, I think of her all the time. One of my favorite memories was in fifth grade. We shared the same desk at different times and we left a notebook in there that we would write to each other in. I remember one time she wrote "Heidi is a fruit salad with no whip topping". I don't know why but that is one of my favorite things she ever wrote to me. It's hilarious. It's so Jaime-Lynn. 30 years later I still remember exactly what her writing looked like at age 10.

Jamie-Lynn had a wonderful spirit that you'd simply pick up on from being in the same room as her. It was a blessing to have known you.

I have so many fond memories of Jamie-Lynn through the Winooski Community Theatre. But what I will remember most is how her presence lit up the stage every time she walked onto it. Her smile, eyes, and personality absolutely radiated with warmth and a little bit of mischief. :) My thoughts and prayers go to her family at this time.

Jamie was always the smartest kid in the room when we worked together many years ago; she never seemed intimidated by anything, and always seemed to find the best in any situation. An absolutely brilliant light that I'm glad I got to know.

Dear Brenda and family, What a sweet, colorful, energetic soul. Jamie-Lynn and Colleen were like 2 peas in a pod. I love her like my own. Lucky for us she left us with so many great memories. We know exactly where she is, and I intend on praying to her when we need help. Make her happy, and move on with your lives until you meet again. RIP sweet Jamie-Lynn

Jamie Lynn lived her life tailored to her personality many can not pull it off as spectacularly as she did. Such great high school memories were had and will live on in memorie as Jamie Lynn will live on in our hearts.

Jamie-Lynn... I don't know how to say how much I will miss her voice at the office, popping in.. smiling, cheering us all and making the world a better place with glitter, skirts, the spice girls and ballet. Even cancer gave her a chance at new hair styles, bravado in the face of chemo, and fairy pictures on Facebook. She is a one of a kind sort of girl. The world is a sadder, more grim place without her. Peace JLTD.

What a wonderful spirit that you bestowed on the Winooski School community - teachers, staff, and students. You were your own woman back then and from the comments I've read, you carried that uniqueness into your future. I am praying for your family in this time of sorrow,

Your career helping children with autism started the day you entered my son's classroom, and you educated, nurtured, and loved him for more than 6 years. Your life energy lives on through him. Thank you, Jaime-Lynn!
