Karen S. "KT" Taylor Obituary
Karen S. "KT" Taylor, 66, of Fairview, passed away after a courageous battle with brain cancer on Friday, October 21, 2016, at Pleasant Ridge Manor.

Karen was born August 3, 1950 in Erie, a daughter of the late Charles and Nancy (Platz) Taylor.

She attended Fairview High School and later went to work at Copes-Vulcan in Lake City until the closing of the plant. She traveled with her late husband, Michael MacFarlane in the horse racing circuits, traveling in several states, where they worked at the race tracks. She later returned to the Fairview area where she began her dog grooming business, "Grooming by KT" in 1993.

She was a member of the Fairview American Legion Post #742 Auxiliary for many years, participating in many of their events. She was passionate about animals and loved her pets.

KT enjoyed camping in the area and enjoyed her permanent sites at local campgrounds, most currently at Evergreen Campground in Conneaut, Ohio.

She will be greatly missed by her family which includes her two sisters, Barbara Taylor (Roger Matthis) of Girard, Faythe Chevalier (Dennis) of Erie; two brothers, Alan Taylor (Darci) of Erie and Brett Taylor (Tracy) of Cleveland and several nieces and nephews, including a special niece, Kimberly Flynn Mierke (Pete).

Friends may call from 4-7 p.m. Monday at the Edder Funeral Home Inc., 309 Main St. East, Girard, and are invited to attend services there on Tuesday at 11 a.m., with Rev. Mark Droll officiating.

Burial will be in Fairview Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to ANNA Shelter, 1555 E. 10th St., Erie, PA 16511, honoring Karen's great love of animals.
