Janet A. Taylor

“Loving wife, mother, (great) grandmother, daughter & sister.”

Janet A. Taylor, 78, of Coudersport, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on September 12, 2019.

Born March 3, 1941 in Galeton, to the late Lester J. & Virginia M. (Knickerbocker) Burrous.

She married the love of her life in 1958, the late Harold “Dick” A. Taylor of 51 years, where they resided in Coudersport.

She was employed and retired after 33 years from Pure Carbon in Coudersport. To many she was known as a hard, dedicated worker with a great sense of humor and wit, with a love for her family & friends. Janet had a heart to love many in her life and in her home. Her and her husband, Dick, for many years took in Fresh Air children during the summers and many say you never drove by the house in the “Tannery” without seeing someone else’s child playing in their yard from the community. Her favorite pass time was doing crossword puzzles and visiting with anyone that just stopped in.

Janet is survived by her children: Lester A (Della) Taylor of Coudersport; Steven M. Taylor of Coudersport; Thomas H. (Crystal) Taylor of Coudersport; 12 grandchildren & 15 great-grandchildren. In addition to her children; sisters: Marie Sutton of Eldred; Ruth (Gary) Soule of Gaines; Mary (Jan) Shope of Galeton; Margo (Mark) Germino of Galeton; Faun (Mike) James of Westfield; and several brothers: Lenny “Red” Burrous of Round O, S.C.; Seth (Sue) Burrous of Galeton;  Scott (Pip) Burrous of Wellsboro; and Chester (Pam) Burrous of Knoxville; and many nieces & nephews.

In addition to her parents, and her loving husband, she was predeceased by her son, Jerry J. Taylor and a daughter, Sheri M. Taylor and several brothers: Judson J Burrous, John J. Burrous, Ronald L. Burrous & Dell R. Burrous.

A private graveside ceremony is being arranged by Fickinger Funeral Home of Coudersport for immediate family.
