Taylor, Jessie "Jay":

Passed away peacefully on July 26, 2020 at Campbellford Memorial Hospital at the age of 96.
Beloved wife of the late John D. “Jack” Taylor.
Devoted Mother of Greg (Mary), Grant (Yolanda Peralta) and Lana (Gordon Mills).
Predeceased by her daughter Sharon (Ron) Mitchell.
Loved by numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Jay was a sweet lady who greeted everyone with a smile, thus touching the hearts of so many. She lived well with a wonderful sense of humour and a lot of energy, teaching many much younger friends that you are never too old to do the things you love. She will always be remembered for her unwavering faith in Jesus and missed for encouraging all to live “one day at a time”.

A private family service will be held at Woodland Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 519-749-8467.

As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to World Outreach Ministries or Freedom Life Church would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home).

The family would also like to thank the nursing staff at Campbellford Memorial Hospital for their compassionate care during the last weeks of Jay’s life.

Jay was a lovely, adventurous woman who had trained Arabian Horses and Maltese dogs! She loved to laugh, worship, and sing. She was totally in love with her Jesus! She loved listening to worship music or the CD's of the Sunday services and of course her special dog "Cookie" was everything to her. Although she was considered legally blind, that didn't stop her from going places, like hopping on a city bus and going to Costco to shop. The clerks there would make sure someone helped her across the street to catch the bus home. She even beat some of the "sighted" people when we went bowling. "I can't see the pins, so just tell me which ones are still standing!" Her favorite restaurant was the Red Lobster and Sundays after church she would accompany a group of us to Angel's diner where she often enjoyed the "senior's special". She carried her take out containers with her so that whatever couldn't be eaten could be brought home. She was very humorous and would often have us laughing at the many jokes she kept tucked away in her memory! She was very resourceful. I often found her on her step stool changing her water dispenser, or after doing laundry, hanging the semi-dry articles on the door frames, or fixing a wobbly leg under her table. She would often say to me "oh just give it a 'lick and a promise' when I took her to the bank or errand and then came back to do some cleaning
A very special lady with a very special heart who blessed all who knew her!! Her favorite expression was " one day at a time".
She will be missed...... Good by dear Jay!! ~ Until we see you again ~ Carolyn Goossen
