Taylor Wood Obituary
Taylor Linn Wood


Heaven gained an angel when Taylor peacefully passed away on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at the age of 17. Taylor was born on March 28, 1997 in Lansing, MI to her loving parents Roger and Lisa (James) Wood.

If one word had to be chosen to describe Taylor it would be heart. When it comes to her character there is no one else with as much deep seeded passion for helping others as much as she.  Taylor strived in both school and extracurricular activities. She averaged a 3.8 GPA, was a member of DECA, and a 4 year Varsity letter Lacrosse athlete, earning academic honors each year, all while working 2 jobs and volunteering for Sparrow Hospital's Cardiatric Care department. She was fiercely competitive always giving 100%.Taylor always saw the best in people and never past judgement upon another. She could make you feel better by just being around her. Taylor truly had a joy and spirit for life, always living each day to the fullest. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.

Taylor is preceded in death by her grandparents, Clifford and Shirley Wood and an Aunt, Joan Wood. She is survived to cherish her memory by her parents Roger and Lisa, her brother, Jordan Wood, her grandparents, Lynn (Judy) James and Sharon (Jim) Yonkers, 10 uncles, 9 aunts, 27 cousins, and many of her loving friends and classmates.

The Rite of Committal will follow in Maple Ridge Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 1:00-4:00 and 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Sunday at the Palmer, Bush & Jensen Family Funeral Home, Holt Chapel.
