It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Anne Taylor on Tuesday, September 20th, 2016, in her 108th year. She was born on the homestead farm in Benson, SK on March 31st, 1909, the third child of William and Melina Menard. Anne went to a country school for her former years and also attended the convent school in Forget, SK. The family was raised with strong Christian values. She loved her faith, which was an enduring source of strength in her life. In 1935, she married Sidney Taylor in Lampman, SK. They had one son, Donne. In 1942 they moved to Moose Jaw, SK. Anne worked at Steen & Wright Furriers for 20 years.

Memories are treasures no one can steal
Death leaves heartache no one can heal
No longer with us in life to share
But in our hearts she’ll always be there.
