Mildred Taylor

1921 - 2015
The family of Mildred Taylor were blessed with her presence until her 95th year. She left us quietly at home on Sunday, December 20. Mildred was born in Salmon Beach, N.B., the only daughter of the late Robert and Esther (Knowles) Miller. Her father passed away when she was six months old.
She is survived by: Donna (Doug) Baker of Riverview, Judith (Boyd) Case of Ottawa, Vernon (Pauline) Taylor of Miramichi, Cindy Taylor of Barrie and Paula (Bruce) Crandall of Moncton; her grandchildren: Lesley Baker, Ian Baker (Crystal Jones), Janice (Garrett) Reid, Randall (Shelly) Case, Daniel Case (Kate Williams), Steven Taylor (Stephanie), Jordan (Lindsey) Taylor, Benjamin Taylor (Jennifer Ann Delahaye), Jason Worrall (Amber Milmine), Madison Taylor (Rob MacIntyre), Lindsey Worrall; 14 great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and their families.
Mildred was predeceased by her husband, A. Vernon Taylor (1960) and her step-father, Jack Norton (1968) and by her brothers and sisters-in-law: Claude (Veda) Miller, John (Lillian) Miller, and Wayne (Elsie) Miller.
A lifelong resident of Salmon Beach she was a member of St. Alban’s Anglican Church where she was a member of the Ladies Guild. She volunteered with the home and school associations for many years. Mildred was a former president of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Herman Good VC Branch 18 of the Royal Canadian Legion, Bathurst; an active volunteer with the poppy fund and blood donor clinics and enjoyed her shuffleboard group.
Mildred was a very proud mother and grandmother who loved to have her family close by and whose life was devoted to their care and wellbeing. She cherished her home and loved to care for her flowers. She was an avid cribbage player who was always ready for a spirited match. Mildred travelled to spend time with her children in Moncton, Riverview, Ontario, Alberta and Newfoundland but was always happiest to be back in Salmon Beach. Mildred was able to remain in her own home until the age of 87 with the help of family, neighbors, and friends in Salmon Beach especially nephew, Alan and Marielle Miller, and Dorothy (late Ronnie) Knowles to whom the family will always be grateful.
Visitations were at Elhatton’s Funeral Home (www.elhatton.com). Funeral will be at the funeral home chapel on December 23, 2015 at 2 p.m.
The family extends thanks to the staff of McNair Manor, Riverview and Dr. Chris Telfer for their friendship and care of Mildred over the past two and half years. Also to Rev. Chris VanBuskirk for his many visits and support.
For those who wish to make a memorial donation the family suggests the West Bathurst Cemetery Fund or St. Alban’s Anglican Church or a food bank near you.
