Porterville Recorder - - THE RECORD -

Alice Lu­cille (Kin­ney) Tay­lor, beloved mother, grand­mother and great-grand­mother, was born in Akron, Ohio on Oct 20, 1925 and passed away on Thurs­day, Nov 9, 2017, in Porter­ville, Cal­i­for­nia.

Alice grad­u­ated from Univer­sity of Akron, where she met Charles Tay­lor, to whom she was mar­ried to for 23 years. Fol­low­ing his grad­u­a­tion from med­i­cal school, they moved to Porter­ville in 1954. She spent the next 20 years rais­ing her chil­dren be­fore re­turn­ing to school to earn her RN de­gree in nurs­ing. She was em­ployed by Sierra View Hos­pi­tal from 1974 un­til her re­tire­ment in 1989, work­ing as a nurse in the op­er­at­ing room. Re­tire­ment didn'’t suit her, so she re­turned to work part­time in the phar­macy.

She had a great love for mu­sic and the out­doors, which she shared with her friends and passed along to her fam­ily. In her 70’s, she taught her­self to play the ham­mered dul­cimer, and joined a Celtic band. This added to her in­stru­men­tal reper­toire, which in­cluded vi­o­lin, trum­pet, French horn, and har­mon­ica. She was a mem­ber of Crack of Dawn Dancers, a linedanc­ing group, un­til she was 90.

Alice was a mem­ber of Porter­ville Nazarene Church.

She is sur­vived by her five chil­dren, Janet (Robert) Goon of Bak­ers­field, Nancy Dames of Visalia, Jill (James) Mc­crory of Ca­mar­illo, Thomas Tay­lor of Visalia, and Donna (Robert) Stei­gleder of Porter­ville, 8 grand­chil­dren, and four great-grand­chil­dren.

A me­mo­rial ser­vice to cel­e­brate her life will be held Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 15 at 11 a.m. at the Porter­ville Church of the Nazarene.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions may be made to Yosemite Con­ser­vancy.
