TAYLOR, Marilyn Louise (Hurley), age 87, of Willoughby, Ohio, departed on Saturday, June 25, 2022. Marilyn was born on July 1, 1934, in Willoughby to Ross G. and Aloha L. (Miller) Hurley. She was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Robert and William; and her husband, Richard H. Taylor, Jr. She is survived by her sons, Dick Taylor (Kim) and Brit Taylor (Susan); grandchildren, Bethany Taylor (Scott O’Brien), Justin Taylor, and Krista Taylor (Justin Beblo).
Marilyn had a lifelong love of fiber arts, including spinning, weaving, and knitting. She was involved in many fiber-centric groups and activities throughout her life. Marilyn always had a knitting project (or 8!) underway. She was an avid reader, whether in the printed form or as e-books on her tablet. She was never without something to read (or knit) and was happy to share her knowledge of books, e-readers, or hand-crafts with anyone who asked. Marilyn loved her church, Grace Episcopal Church in Willoughby, where she served in various leadership roles for many years. Her hands were never idle, her friends were never far, and her laugh and smile will be remembered always.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday August 13, 2022, 1:30 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church, 36200 Ridge Rd, Willoughby, OH 44094. Marilyn’s family will greet visitors beginning at noon. Interment in the Grace Memorial Grove will follow the service. Please join us for an ice cream social, Marilyn’s favorite treat, at the church following the service.
In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Friends of the Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library (https://we247.org/) or Episcopal Relief & Development. (https://www.episcopalrelief.org)

I have great memories of Mrs. Taylor. We all lived on Wood St. She was always so nice to all of us kids. Thinking of Dick and Brit…
We.are.so blessed to have known “M” and be a part of her family. She raised a fine young man who is our “son-.in-love”. Thank you for that. We know that angels lead your way as you rose in glory and rest in peace.
Cousin Marilyn was one of the most patient, kind, warm, and generous people I have ever known. I feel honored to have known her.
Sending much Aloha to Dick and ohana/family. Your mother is someone who brought you into this world and The Lord has decided her work here is done. Sending prayers to you for peace in your heart at the Home Going of your dear mother. Looking forward to meeting her in the next life in Heaven.
