Patricia Taylor

In Loving Memory

Taylor, Patricia Ellen (nee Franks)

May 20, 1961 - November 16, 2023

Patricia Ellen Taylor (nee: Franks), 62, of St. Louis, passed away on November 16, 2023 in her home with family by her side. She was born May 20, 1961 in St. Louis.

Beloved mother of Mark (Tiffany) Taylor and Paul (Jamie) Taylor; Oma of Russell Taylor, Beau Taylor, Briar Taylor and Baby Taylor; dear sister of Susan (Tom) Patrick; dear aunt, cousin and friend to all.

Preceded in death by her mother June Franks nee: Ortleb and survived by her father Harold Franks.

Dedicated employee of Midwest Elevator.

Her greatest calling in life was being a mother and Oma.  She enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, family and friends. Anyone who knew her would describe her as a social butterfly who felt at home at the beach with her toes in the sand. Patricia was a bright shining light who made the most of any situation she found herself in. Since the diagnosis of colon cancer, she has been nothing but optimistic while fighting until her last breath. She will truly be missed by all.

Services: Visitation at KUTIS AFFTON Chapel 10151 Gravois Saturday November 25, 10:00 AM until services at 3:00 PM.
