ELLA TAYLOR, 59, of Warsaw, passed peacefully into the loving arms of Jesus on Monday, June 11, 2018, at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne. She was born March 29, 1959, at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, a daughter of Jewell Timmons (Dawson). She graduated from Paul Harding High School in Fort Wayne, and went on to get an Associate's Degree in Nursing from Purdue University. She was proud to serve her community as a nurse for 40 years at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne before an early retirement to spend more time with family. Family was of the greatest importance to Ella, second only to her devotion to God. She was passionate about art and known by many as a talented artist. She was a care-provider for anyone who needed a helping hand, and was even credited with saving the life of a girl who had drowned in Fort Wayne. She always stayed active and put her heart into everything that she did. She home schooled her children while working full-time and always made the most of holiday and birthday gatherings. Surviving are her children, Vanessa Meza (Taylor) and Justin Taylor, both of Warsaw; also her mother; two sisters, Melbra Welch and Evelyn Timmons Petrosky; three brothers, John Timmons, Wade Timmons and Fritz Timmons; and her beloved pet Bird; five grandchildren whom she adored, Isaac, Damian, Malina, Braxton, and Kalista. She was preceded in death by her son, Jason Taylor; and her grandma, Vivian Wrightsman. Memorial service is 7 p.m. Thursday, June 14, 2018, at Warsaw Community Grace Brethren Church, 909 Buffalo St., Warsaw, (IN 46580). Burial will be in Oakwood Cemetery, Warsaw. Arrangements by Heritage Funeral & Cremation Services, Warsaw, Ind. Online condolences may be left at www.heritage-fcs.com.
