Jeanne Michelle Taylor

August 27, 1969 — September 30, 2023


It’s with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aka Memaw, sister and loving aunt.

 Jeanne Michelle Taylor was born to Robert and Elizabeth Olsen on August 27th, 1969 and passed away September 30th, 2023. Born and raised in Shelby, she was a member of the graduating class of 1987.

 Jeanne was loving, caring and family centered. Marrying Jeff Taylor on July 16th, 1994, together they raised 3 beautiful children, Robbie, Matty, and Erin. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, teaching them how to bake delicious treats; learned from all her favorite cooking shows. She created a home for her grandkids to enjoy, always having a craft ready to do with them and ending with a dance party on the deck.

 Our memories of Jeanne will include her natural gift for music, always singing, often finishing your sentence with lyrics. She loved the Seattle Seahawks so much that even the Christmas tree was decorated with a Seahawks theme. If it wasn’t Sunday football, she had Judge Judy playing, never missing an episode. She enjoyed sitting in the sun, reading a book.

 Some of her favorite past times include time at the lake with her family or out on the golf course. Jeanne was very giving, often sharing her baked creations with friends and family, or cooking an elaborate Thanksgiving dinner. If she could help anyone in any way, she always would. 

 She was preceded in death by her parents; her mother-in-law, Gail Engel; brother, Jerry Olsen; brother-in-law, Mike LaSorte; and niece, Sarah. She is survived by her husband, Jeff Taylor; sons, Robbie (Ashly) and Matty; daughters, Erin (Tyler) and Alisha; and grandkids, Dante, Athea, Scout, and Finn; siblings, Cathy (Dave), Linda (Andy), Barb, Bob (Lois), Nancy (Lyn), Steve (Shari), David (Juanita), Chris, Patti, Nicki (Myles); brother-in-law, Jason Engel (Tearsa);  sister-in-law, Julie Olsen; many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.

 Jeanne’s contagious smile and laughter will always be carried in our hearts. “I hate to leave you, but I really must say, goodnight sweetheart, goodnight.”
