Maxine Taylor

Maxine Taylor, 91, of Burley, passed away Wednesday, July 31, 2019 surrounded by her family.  

Maxine was born December 30, 1927 in Burley, Idaho, the oldest child of Edgar Eugene Price and Ada Smith

Maxine married her high school sweetheart, Cloyd Derlin Taylor on October 22, 1946 in the Idaho Falls Temple. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  She held many callings including Jr. Sunday School teacher, Primary teacher, Counselor in the Primary Presidency, Dance Director with Cloyd; but her favorite callings were Relief Society President at Highland Estates and Compassionate Service leader.  Maxine loved to serve others.  Whether it was family, church members, neighbors, or friends, there was always a handwritten card, some goodies, or a visit.

Maxine’s greatest joy was being with her family.  Her spunky spirit, smile, and love will truly be missed.

Maxine is survived by her children, Cheryl (Ray) Koyle, Derlin (Nancy) Taylor, Russell (Karla) Taylor, Brad Taylor, Bolfin Lavarreda, adopted son Dusty (Therryl) Anderson; her siblings LuDean (Vern) Worthern, Vergene Tanner, Roger (Patty) Price; Twenty grandchildren, Seventy-one great-grandchildren; and eight great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband Cloyd; her parents; and one brother-in-law.

The family would like to thank Harrison’s Hope Hospice, especially Barbara, Kathryn, and Kippy for their devotion, love, and friendship to us and our mother.

Funeral services were held Monday, August 5, 2019, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Unity 1st Ward, 275 S 250 E, Burley, Idaho with Bishop’s counselor Ryn Beck officiating.  Internment was at Gem Memorial Gardens, Burley.  Arrangements were under the direction of Morrison Funeral Home, 188 South Hwy 24 in Rupert.
