She pursued her love of music and became an accomplished pianist and organist.   She was wife, mother and homemaker as she supported her husband in their business of 40 years, Lookout Sheet Metal Company.

She is survived by her son, Larry L. Taylor (Toni) of Signal Mountain; daughter, Barbara T. Lemley (Glenn) of Hixson; grandson, Larry Taylor Hough of Knoxville; and three great-grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the staff of Hospice of Chattanooga for their compassionate and loving care in recent weeks.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Bayside Baptist Church, Harrison.
