At the age of 100 and Loving Mother to four children Doris (Hudie) Taylor, passed away early Thursday morning, May 26, 2022 at her residence in Sanford with family in attendance.
She was born October 25, 1921 on a farm in rural Sanilac County, one of two daughters of the late Thomas and Hazel (Grimes) Hudie. She was an excellent example of a model American Citizen for others to follow: She lived in the aftermath of the Spanish Flu; worked on the family farm during the Great Depression helping feed many families; a Rosie The Riveter at an Aircraft Wiring Factory during World War II and then Chrysler supporting the war effort; and even battled and won her fight against COVID in 2020.
Doris was preceded in death by her wonderful husband of 54 years, R.G. Moran Taylor.
She was a member of the Marlette Baptist Church, VFW Ladies Auxiliary, and a fantastic homemaker. She enjoyed traveling; knitting; fishing; board and card games; however, most of all spending time with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.
Doris is survived by her children, Pamela (Gordon) Vasseur of Cookeville, Tennessee, Richard (Judy) Taylor of Cincinnati, Ohio, David (Diane) Taylor of Beaverton, and Jill (Monty) Wiseman of Beaverton, five grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
Special thanks to Meridian Acres in Sanford who provided invaluable care to Doris for the last few years. She truly enjoyed her time there.
Per Doris' wishes no funeral services will be held. However, it is a time to celebrate, not to mourn, this remarkable woman. Please celebrate Doris' life and your relationship with her in a way that makes you happy. Burial will be held in private. In lieu of flowers, those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider memorial contributions to the charity of their choice. To sign online guestbook, visit www.cremationsocietymidmi.com
