Tribute: Nancy Ann Taylor

Nancy Ann Taylor

Sept. 18, 1937 – Aug. 2, 2023

Nancy Ann Taylor passed away on Aug. 2, 2023, surrounded by her loved ones.

Nancy was born on Sept. 18, 1937 in Los Angeles, Calif. She graduated from Creswell High School in 1956 and married Dean Taylor on July 26, 1957. 

Nancy is survived by her husband, Dean Taylor, of Creswell, Ore.; her son, Mike Taylor, of Reedsport, Ore.; her son David Taylor, of Creswell, Ore.; and her daughter, Julie Brown, of Redmond, Ore.; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and one great-great-granddaughter. 

For many years while their children played sports, Dean coached and Nancy was the stat keeper and team mom. Each summer they would take the ball team to Oakridge to the yearly tournament and camp out for the weekend with the ball team. 

Nancy enjoyed all sports that their three children played (football, baseball, basketball, softball, volleyball, motorcycle racing, and car racing) along with camping, fishing, hunting, and traveling in their RV. 

Nancy was a stay-at-home mom until the kids reached school-age and she then worked at the Creswell Telephone Company for many years. The family later moved to La Pine, Bend, Burns, and eventually back to the family home in Creswell, Ore. 

A celebration of life will be held at a later date to be determined.
