Betty Taylor

In Loving Memory

Taylor, Betty

October 15, 1931 - April 26, 2024

Beloved wife of Bill Taylor (deceased 2024) and Bob Haralson (deceased 1984), peacefully departed on April 26, 2024, at the age of 92, knowing she was deeply loved by her family.

Betty is survived by her three children: Barbara (David-d.) Thompson, Diane (Bill) Rademacher, and Laura Haralson as well as her step-children; Bill (Donna) Taylor, Pat Taylor, Linda Taylor, Helen Reid (Vernon Hatridge), and Susie Taylor Murphy. She will also be missed by her grandchildren Shannon (Derek) Morgan, Stacey (Christian) Taylor, Nathan Thompson, Anthony (Karen) Beisel, Mary Rademacher (Sam Knuth), and Hannah Rademacher, as well as Adam Nassif (Stephanie Gerstacker), Allison Nassif, Lauren (Luke) Ferraro, Ryan (Amanda) Chambers, Kurt (Andrea) Chambers, Bill (Katie) Taylor, Kimberly Taylor, Will Murphy, Danny Murphy and 19 great-grandchildren.

Betty was born in Sparta, Illinois, on October 15, 1932, and grew up near there as well as in St. Louis. She and Bob Haralson lived in St. Louis where they raised three daughters. They were married for nearly 35 years at the time of his passing in 1984.

After several years she met Bill Taylor, and they were married in 1987. Together they enjoyed travel, time with family and friends and nearly 36 years of marriage.
Betty remained active in her church, walking club, having fun with friends and enjoying a long, well-lived life. She will be missed by those who knew her, but we will all consider ourselves fortunate to have had her touch our lives.

A celebration of life will be held at Concord Trinity United Methodist Church on Saturday, June 15 at 10:30 AM. There will be a period of visitation followed by the service at 11:00 with a luncheon immediately following. (Please note there is an elevator for those who may need it.) The church is located at 5275 Lindbergh Blvd, St. Louis, Missouri.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice.

A private service for family will be held with interment at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.


1 thought on “Taylor, Betty”

  1. I will always remember Betty and Bill when they hosted the Christmas Cookie Social; with Betty making hundreds of unbelievable cookies for Missouri Walkways members. They also hosted the summer watermelon social also for Missouri Walkways. Betty and Bill were part of my St. Patrick Dinner, a small group of about 8-12 Walkways members. Betty always enjoyed the corned beef and colcannon. Betty was always a joy to be around and missed by many.
