Edna Marie Taylor

Edna Marie Taylor and her twin brother Edward were born on September 7, 1932 at 1829 Mercier (home), in Kansas City, Missouri. She married Jim L. Taylor the love of her life whom on the last day of 2nd grade, she told she would marry when they grew up. They were married April 22, 1955 and stayed best friends and husband and wife for 65 beautiful years. She had 3 kids a daughter, Mary and two sons Jack and Daniel. She has 9 grandkids, and two great grandkids. She also has 3 older sisters that had gone on before her and several cousins. She was a wonderful woman, her and her husband rode their tandem bike 66,610 miles from 1994-2017. In 2019 they bought a tandem recliner trike which they rode about 300 miles, so many people on Indian Creek Trail knew and loved her. She loved watching the Overland Park Orchestra rehearse and perform (in which her husband was a part). She also loved to fly their plane with her husband. She was an extraordinary woman who was very forgiving, never remembering offenses and always kind and understanding. She will be loved and early missed!

    Mr. Taylor. We are so sorry to hear about Edna. Even though we haven’t seen you and Edna much in the passing years we want you to know how much she and you have meant to us. You made Sherrie and I feel welcome when we moved to Kansas City. We will never forget all things you and Edna did for us. The water skiing, plane rides, Sunday school classes and everything else. Visiting Raylene’s mom, and making her feel better. We can never thank you enough. We love you.

  3. Dominique Schreurs Says:

    My sincere condolences to Jim and the whole family.

    I know Jim and Edna from their great services at ARFTG conferences for many years. Edna was always very supportive and helping out with whatever she could contribute to. I picture her again at the ARFTG registration desk and ExCom meetings.

    My prayers are with you.

    Deer Jim

    So sorry to hear about Edna’s passing. I will watch her funeral on Facebook tomorrow wishing I could be there in person but we are under a total quarantine here and I can’t leave this building.

    After reading her obituary I know you two had an amazing life together. I did not know about you two flying. That must have been wonderful. Of course I can picture her at our rehearsals snd video taping our concerts. and I thank you for giving me dvds of them over the years

    God bless you and your family and I hope to see you soon at our next Overland Park Orchestra rehearsal.
