Thelma M. (Beatty) Taylor, 84, of Export, passed away Wednesday, April 7, 2021, in the home of her son, Kent, surrounded by love. She was the beloved daughter of the late Benjamin Ezra Beatty and Margaret Ruth (Patterson Hutchison) Beatty; and most loved mother of Kent and Dean Taylor. She was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene E. Taylor; her son, Dean Taylor; her granddaughter, Courtney Speirs; and her brothers and sisters, James Beatty, David "Whitey" Beatty, Cyrus "Buck" Beatty, Milton Beatty, Lucille Luciow, Joann Smail and Patricia Kealey. Thelma is survived by her son, Kent Taylor; her grandchildren, Ryan and Jessica Taylor and Ashley Stepnick; her great-granddaughter, Rylee McCarney; her daughter-in-law, Jennifer Stokes Taylor; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was also greatly loved by Ginny and Chloe Warnock. In addition to raising her sons, Thelma worked many years at National Aluminum in Murrysville, and at Giant Eagle in Export. After her sons finished high school, Thelma returned to school and earned her GED. Thelma enjoyed gardening, and being on a bowling league for many years. She was also an amazing cook and baker. Her family was the most important thing in her life. Thelma had a kind and generous heart, and a gentle soul, and always put other people before herself. A special thank-you to Ginny and Chloe Warnock for all of your love and support. Also, a special thank-you to Heartland Hospice for the loving care you gave to Mom. You were truly a blessing.
