Beth Ann Taylor

Faithful and humble servant, loving wife, mom to 4, sister, daughter, and friend. She was the best “Grammy” imaginable to her 8 (almost 9) grandkids. Beth was born and raised in a large family in Wooster, Ohio and loved her life and home here. She graduated from Wooster High School in 1968 and received a degree in elementary education from Wittenberg University. She was happiest with her family, enjoying the simple pleasures of life. She started and ended her busy days with her favorite person, her husband and best friend, Greg, together for 57 years.

Beth was a light of Christ, following His command: Love God and Love others. She made God her first priority and had an unwavering faith that was evident in all that she did and encouraging to all those around her. Beth always put others above herself. She anticipated others’ needs, and happily made every task in which she could give of herself, a joyful one. She counted her blessings, found joy in little things, and praised God while valuing each moment.

Beth loved to serve and provide for others. She volunteered with her Church (Sunday school, childcare, church council, vacation bible school, church camp), Meals Together, Master gardening activities, PEO, and the list goes on. She always made time to enjoy great friendships and treasured her siblings as her closest friends.

A retired grade school teacher, Beth never stopped learning or teaching. She was always filled with joy, adventurous, self-less, happy in all things, kind, caring, loving, and positive. Beautiful inside and out, Beth’s constant smile and laughter were contagious. She loved to get her hands dirty, always creating beauty around her. Beth was a “hub” that brought and kept others together. Her happy greetings, loving heart and open door policy made everyone feel valued and welcomed.

Beth is the best of us!  We all are thankful for the love and faithful example she gave us. She planted more than flowers and the blooms will continue to grow.

Beth’s parents were; J.Clyde and Lucy Breneman. Her family includes husband, Greg Taylor; mother-in-law, Betty Mosher; children, Joy Taylor (Katie), Andy Taylor, Kara (Jacob) Melrose, Lori (Jon) Lee; grandchildren, Anna, Roy, Maggie & Lucy Melrose, Cora, Maxwell, & Vivian Lee, and baby Jaide; siblings, Linda (David) Bush, Paula Abrecht, Bob (Amy) Breneman, Jeff (Amy) Breneman, Ben (Sherria) Breneman; siblings-in-law, Tim Taylor, Beth (Tony) Hart, Matt Mosher; and a large group of loving nieces and nephews.
