The Taylor's left Oregon in 2008 and settled in Marysville Washington where Kathy spent the remainder of her beautiful life.

I’m so thankful for the time that I got to share with you. Looking back I cherish the time spent with you and Mike growing up as a young child at dads house. Having you baby set us through elementary school and schooling me on music while cruising around in the station wagon, I still think of you when a Shania Twain song comes on. I loved and appreciated how real you were. I’m going to miss your humor and talking with you. The love that you shared is a true testament of your character and that will live on forever. I love you and am great full to know your at peace. I know that toughness that you possessed will be passed down to your amazing girls and your love will continue to make your family strong. Here’s to all the good times and to seeing you again.

Kathy you were such an amazing woman. I admire you and your love for my brother and the girls. You had the biggest heart, you were honest and kind. You impacted everyone you met. I could talk to you about anything you always listened and gave me good honest advise, wether it was what I wanted to hear or not. I will miss our girls nights out were we would get ornery togther, rock out in the car and laugh so much we cry. You mean so much to me! You were so much more to me then just my brothers wife. You are forever a woman I admire, I adore, one of my best friends and my sister. Continue to look out for me Kat, I am heartbroken and sure could use one of your hugs ♡" I'll see you again...."♡
Forever loving you ~Mar

Kathy is my cousin via the only uncle I knew...my father's brother, Bob. It was unfortunate that I did not see her (or Cousin Tracy) often, but when I did, I knew the hugs were comin'! It baffled me that these two girls would be so excited to see me/us but that explains their heart...full and overflowing! For everyone! Mike, Jessica, Cindy--that kind of love will not be cut short! You can be sure your mom (wife) will always love you and she can't wait for the day when she can wrap you up in one of her great bear hugs! God be with you while you wait for that day. With all my love, "Cousin Leslae."

We can’t believe that you’re gone, you were such a light in this family!, to say that you will be missed is an understatement, I wish I could bring you back, you will never be forgotten!❤️💐.

You will be terribly missed sweetheart. All of us feel a bit empty now. You took a very large part of us when you left, but this is not goodbye. This is "to be continued".... ❤

You were always a joy to visit both at your home and while we worked. It was a great part of my day when I got to go and tease you over at the parts office and joke around with Myke. Your easy laugh and love will be forever missed.
