Patricia A. Taylor, 83, of Piedmont, OH, died May 12, 2014, at her home.

She was born June 6, 1930, in Bethesda, OH, daughter of the late Sara M. Frizzel.

An amazing woman, she was a loving, devoted, and hardworking mother, grand mother, and great-grand mother. Because of her loving nature, she was a “mom” to all. She is described as the “rock,” the foundation, of her family.

In addition to her mother, she was preceded in death by her husband, C. Dale Taylor, and her son, Bruce Taylor. Bruce’s famous words to his mom were always, “Now, Mom.”

Patricia is survived by her daughter, Deborah A. (Bob) Forster of Ocala, FL; son, Paul W. Taylor of St. Clairsville, OH; daughter- in-law, Paget Taylor of Piedmont, OH; grandchildren, Jason, Nathan, Heather, Zachary, Courtney, Robert; great-grandchild, Mason and his mother, Tracy; nieces and nephew, Carol, Rusty, and Mary Jo; and close friends and neighbors.

Patricia’s request was there not be any visitation and a private service conducted at the convenience of her family.
