TAYLOR, Jane (née MCLEAN) - Passed quietly at home in Oakville on September 28, 2023.
She was 90 years old.
She never forgot her Scottish origins, and celebrated her morning tea until the last.
She married Donald W. Taylor in 1954, and together they raised four children and many dogs before his death in 1995.
Their children grew up in Buffalo, where Jane was an avid volunteer, giving her time to many causes including the hospital gift shop and her children's schools.
She always regretted having to leave school early, and showed her children the importance of education when she earned her GED while they were young.
Jane was an avid reader, interested in many diverse topics, but especially fascinated with Judaism.
Jane was a staunch fan of CBC Radio, even getting a shortwave radio to keep it playing in the house the entire time they lived in Buffalo.
In her later years, she became a snow bird, wintering in Osprey, Florida where she has many friends.
She is survived by children and grandchildren: Bruce, Mark, Marguerite Freeman, Suzanne, Georgia (Rosario), Quinn, and Tegan.
She is also survived by nieces and nephews here and in the UK, and by her beloved and devoted Havanese, Lily.
Visitation will be held at Glen Oaks Funeral Home & Cemetery, 3164 Ninth Line, Oakville on Friday, October 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Services will be held in the chapel on Saturday, October 14 at 1:00 p.m. Reception to follow.
