TAYLOR – Fay Marilyn Elizabeth

January 11, 1943 – November 25, 2009

It is with great sadness that we announce that Fay Marilyn Elizabeth Taylor of Calgary has passed away at the age of 66 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Fay is survived by her loving son Dennis (Britta); daughter Corrina (Steve); brothers, James (Mary), Steve (Sheila), Dwight (Sue), Peter (Sue); sisters, Mona (Ron) and Lily (Velmer); and mother Irene. One of her greatest joys was spending time with her four loving grandchildren, Samantha, Michael, Thomas, and Jack.

Fay was born on January 11, 1943 in Danford Lake, QC and moved to Alberta in 1974. During the course of her lifetime, Fay took on a variety of diverse and challenging roles ranging from owning a restaurant to operating heavy equipment. Most recently, she served as a valued member of the support team at the University of Calgary Medical Clinic at North Hill.

Fay leaves behind a legacy of love and strong relationships with family, friends and co-workers. More than anything, Fay will be remembered for how much she truly cared for those around her. She was loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure.

Family and friends are invited to a celebration of Fay’s life at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Tuesday, December 1, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences can be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

  8. Do not stand at my grave and weep;
    I am not there, i do not sleep.

    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow.

    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.

    When you awaken in the mornings hush,
    I am the the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in cicled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.

    Do not stand at my grave and cry.
    I am not there, I did not die.

    Thinking of you guys and sending lots of love and prayers.
    We love you Aunt Fay…….

    Dear Corrina, So very sorry to learn just today of your mother’s passing although we’ve been thinking of you this past month as we knew she was seriously ill. Having read many of the condolences, it’s obvious she was a much loved and beautiful person, and how fortunate you are to have had such a wonderful Mom. I’m sure you have many lovely memories of her and may they sustain you during this trying time.

    Much love to you all,
    Barb and Bill
