Helen Marie Taylor Obituary
HELEN MARIE TAYLOR peacefully passed away Thursday, May 19, 2016 at home surrounded by her family after a gentle struggle with COPD. She was born August 21, 1929 in San Diego, CA. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Taylor. My grandmother was well known throughout Hemet, CA and was cherished for her time spent in helping build our community. Many knew Helen for her philanthropic work in the Hemet Valley, laying the groundwork for many of our landmark foundations. She was a founding member of the Hemet Hospital Auxiliary in the 1950s and participated in the Hospital Foundation. Helen donated her time as an active member of Valley Restart, P.E.O., AFS student exchange program, the Community Concert series and the Assistance League. She met Robert at the Ramona Pageant in which they were active participants for over 50 years. Those close to her knew her as a very accepting, funny and creative woman. As her granddaughter, I am lucky to have lived with such a strong woman for 21 years and I honor the long and fruitful life that she lived. She is survived by her two daughters, Leslie Taylor and Sarah Chapman; son-in-law Jonathan Chapman and grandchildren Igor and Natasha Chapman and Ashley and Tristan Wettlaufer. Per Helen's request, no services are planned at this time.
