Patricia Lynne Taylor
May 27, 1944 – June 18, 2020
Pat Taylor, 76, passed away at her home in Burbank, California on June 18, 2020. She was born on May 27, 1944 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to the late Donald Callahan and Gloria Smith. Pat was the oldest of three, now survived by her brother Larry and her sister Vicki.
Pat graduated in 1962 from John Muir High School in Pasadena, California. Shortly after, Pat turned her passion for vintage clothing into a career, and became the sole proprietor of Hubba Hubba! located on Magnolia Blvd in Burbank for 35 years. Pat was highly admired by her eye for her vintage clothing and her unique way with people. Besides her successful business, Pat supported her local theater community by attending several plays a month and enjoyed writing her weekly reviews as a columnist in the Tolucan Times.
Pat will be dearly missed by her daughter Dana and her son Jeffrey, as well as her grandchildren; Keegan, Kassidy and Kye and her two great-grand children.
Pat left a long-lasting impression and will be remembered fondly by her community, friends and family. We are hoping to have a Celebration of Her Life held in the near future.

I'm so incredibly sorry to hear of Pat's passing. I first met Pat back in the mid 80's when I was with our band Animotion. Pat was always so wonderful to us and we just loved the hell out of her and her store Hubba Hubba! Pat was always such a fabulous firecracker of a girl and I loved how she lit up any room she entered. To say she'll be missed is an enormous understatement. God bless her. Please know I send my best thoughts and love to her family.

I knew Pat from her store and working at the newspaper. Never met anyone like her. She was definitely one of a kind. I always envied her energy and her natural ability to talk and get to know anyone she met. My niece purchased a dress at her store one time and Pat quickly picked out the perfect accessories to go with it. She was a multi talented woman. Sincere condolences to her family.

My condolences to Pat's family.
I met Pat in the early 70s when I lived on Fairview. I babysat Dana and Jeff and thought Pat was the coolest hippie ever. May you rest in peace Pat.

How can I describe my 50 year friendship with Pat Taylor? Lots of laughs and lots of music amidst talented people would be at the center. That being said..she was always in the center of it all. She was a force of nature plain and simple.
She lived life on her terms and I was privileged to be part of it.
Thanks for the ride dear one.
See you on the other side.

Pat was one of the most "colorful" characters around! It was always great to see her attending many of the theater plays that would perform in the Los Angeles region. She was also an expect in vintage clothing, always ready to assist an art director or costuming designer picking out outfits for the many period TV series and feature films that was being shot around town!
She will be dearfully missed!

I am heartbroken to hear of one my best, true friend, Pat Taylor's passing. I have so many unforgettable memories of her and the wonderful times we have had together for years. I met Pat and her Mom years ago while I was singing with my brother Richard at the Smoke House years ago. We became instant friends and hung out together, shopped together, traveled together, laughed and cried together for years. I know she has not been well for some time, and my only consolation is she is no longer suffering. I will miss her beyond words... Pat has left me a trail of beautiful memories which I will always cherish. My heartfelt condolences to Dana, Jeff, and family. Rest in Peace my dear special friend.

Pat was one of the craziest and most vivacious women I had ever met in my life. I knew Pat because I worked at the newspaper for many years. She was unabashedly honest, funny, loud, but cared about people to their core. Unfortunately due to Covid, I had been unable to visit but I would call and we would talk for a little. I’m sad that she is gone but I know she had been struggling for a while, and had not been feeling well, so she’s no longer afraid, and that gives me peace.
I will never forget Pat, and I send condolences to her family, especially her daughter and granddaughter. 💕

I have too many memories to share. Pat was my second Mom. I met her when I was 15 years old. She saw the less than ideal home situation I was in and took me under her wing. We were friends for 30 years. We went out, laughed, saw plays, went to events, watched movies at her house, went to great restaurants, or just sat at her kitchen table and talked about life. She was more than a friend, she was my mentor, mama, and life guide. I will miss her greatly.
Pat was a ball of fire. I can't tell you how many dinners out we had where half the folks at other tables would end up at ours. She was in her element in her store. That when Pat was Pat. She was the best salesperson on earth. But she also wanted you to look great. She was one of a kind. I love you Pat.

A friend of Pat’s invited me along with Pat to an opening night of a production of the Rubicon Theater in Ventura. This included attending an Opening Night Gala at great restaurant in Downtown Ventura.
The play was excellent, as Pat had predicted. Her informal commentary between acts was spot on. Her expectation that it would be excellent overall was confirmed.
At the post production gala, she made sure that I felt included, even though I was new to her, and to the Rubicon insiders.
I met her just that one night, but I left knowing that she was both a great person and a talented critic of live performance.
Bon voyage, Pat. I know your next journey will be as blessed by you as the one you are leaving.
