Grandma, I wish I could have taken the time to tell you how one of a kind you truly were. Always full of love and laughter. Such a family oriented woman always caring for those near your heart. I’ll always cherish the memories we had at the cottages, jays games , or even just spending time at your house. We will miss you deeply. Say hello to heaven my angel . Sending our love to you and grandpa up there , and to all the family and friends who knew you. Rest in piece xoxo
When i think of this lady ,I have nothing but glowing fondness and love. I first met her when i was 12 years old 53 years ago. I at that time was running wild . As the years passed by she became my 2nd mother who would twist my ear and set me straight and make sure i was full. I have only seen her a few times since i moved away in 1976 but when i did see her it was oh so sweet. I have always loved you lois and will continue to love you for the rest of my days. To the family I am so so sorry for your loss and i love you all.
My love goes out to all of the family of this beautiful lady. Loving mother grandmother and friend. A beautiful lady she was and seemed to love everyone. Sorry I can’t be there. It’s the same day as my brother in laws brothers memorial. Please accept my love and apology. I would of loved to be there to give you alla hug. Many blessings .
I have known Lois since i was 12 years old , so 53 years. She would always treat me like one of her own. No matter what I did over the years I would still get that little smile and a hug and get a snack. I moved away in 1976 and seen her a couple times over the years, maybe 4 or 5 times..Always a hug and a laugh .It is one lady i will never forget.. RIP To the Taylor family ,I,m so sorry for your loss and I love you all

My mother, my friend, a person who I could talk to everyday on the phone, a shoulder to cry on when I needed to. I'm going to miss those calls and your shoulder. I learned a lot from you. We'll miss you dearly. oxoxoxoxo

Mrs T. Where to start? A mom to more than just her own kids. She wasn’t afraid to tell us how it was either. I have memories of Coppercraft, huge zucchini’s from her gardens, ball room dancing , many birthday celebrations and always her laughter. So grateful that I knew her. She’ll be missed and remembered. She was a special lady.

We knew the dreaded day would come when you would leave us to dance in the heavens but it sure doesn't make it any easier. Mom you have been such a strong inspiration in my life for everything you were and shared with me and your family. I have soooo many wonderful memories I could write a great book!
As a child I loved helping you at our huge vegetable garden, & flower gardens, & crafting...
I loved all our family time as you always made every occasion special.
I loved taking you on the road with me while working across Ontario we shared great meals, explored neat stores and had fun in the hotels, I did get work done as well, you were awesome company!
Train trips, balloon ride, visiting relatives, cottaging, concerts, Florida, BC, so many fabulous memories to cherish.
I was so proud of you when you were awarded a medal from the Govenor General "Serving Sister" for all your volunteer work with St. Johns Ambulance
I was so proud of you at your Lions meetings right up into your 90's you were helping out your community
I was so proud of you when you sold jewelery, coppercraft.... winning trips and every incentive possible you won.
I was so proud of you ballroom dancing across the world, your eyes shone like the diamonds, and your smile was radiant!
All of our staff and customers loved you at my cafe and you cooked great meals for everyone, I will cherish the guest book with all there comments on you!!!
I am so proud of the wonderful, strong, wise, compassionate, interesting, talented woman you were and thank you so much for being a fantastic mother. You will be greatly missed everyday but I know you will be by my side. There is comfort in knowing you lived life to the fullest right to the end and didn't have to suffer.
Rest in Peace Mom
Love you Forever
