After a courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness we announce the passing of Marie Teresa Taylor (Hynes) on July 30, 2012 at the Dr. Leonard A. Miller Centre, surrounded by family and friends. Marie had just celebrated her 80th birthday with all of her children present. Marie, or Mrs. Taylor to most people, was born June 3, 1932 in Port au Port to Harold and Maime Hynes but called St. John’s her home. Marie was widowed in 1981 by Cyril Theodore Taylor; she carried on her life with great strength and the love of her seven children. She is survived by her seven children: Dolores Jamieson (David), Colleen Faulkner (Wayne), Mario Taylor (Susan), John Craig Taylor (Rosann), Laurie Cantwell (Tim), Ken Taylor (Jennifer), and Brenda Buckle (Scott) and her seven brothers and sisters: Arthur (Mary), Barbara, Brendan (Theresa), Collette (George), Don (Patricia), Jeroma (Wannie) and Kyran (Mary); predeceased by brothers: Albert and Harold and sister Dolores. Marie had nine grandchildren whom she adored: Mark, Mandy, Jason, Sarah, Lauren, Danielle, Scott, Samantha, and Jonathan and four great-grandchildren: Declan, Xander, Cole and Maëlle.
