Ada Louisa Taylor passed peacefully away from the Menno Home in Abbotsford, B.C. on Thursday, February 28th at the age of ninety years.
Predeceased by her husband Art Taylor and sister Ethel. Leaving to cherish her memory sons Kenneth (Doris), Doug (Lorlie), Jim (Vanessa), eight grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, brother Arthur Rose, one niece and three nephews, including John and Don ( Pat) Macdonald, and other relatives and many friends.
It is with both sadness and relief that her family marks her passing.
She was a wonderful mother, an encouraging friend, an avid gardener. Mom was an excellent listener, interested in chatting with everybody she met, learning about their life and struggles and successes, never letting on that she might have some challenges of her own.
Mom thoroughly enjoyed the fellowship of choir and church members. Her life was an example that “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.”
Her family is sad that the physical life of a remarkable person has ended.
Especially during her last eighteen months, Mom’s body, but not her spirit, progressively deteriorated. Osteoporosis wreaked havoc with her spine; pain became her constant companion, her strength diminished. She became reliant on others for daily needs. Communication became increasingly difficult. The outcome was certain.
Her family is relieved that her earthly struggle is finally over. Not one day longer would we have it continue as it was.
Sharing whatever you could was important to Mom. Whether it was an encouragement, a skill, a blessing, a meal, someplace to live for a while, a compliment, a wonder about the world we live in, a moment in time, Mom was convinced that sharing made the world a better place.
So as you reflect on the life and values of Ada Louisa Taylor, give some thought about how you could share a kindness or a blessing or whatever you can with those who are in need.
The family will be celebrating a private graveside ceremony in remembrance.
