Right on


Alice Ann Nelson Taylor of Honeyville, Utah, was born September 16, 1932, in Tucson, Arizona, to Thomas George and Alice Ann Kimball Nelson. There she was raised on a farm along with ten other siblings: George Kimball, Andrew Hyrum, Olive, Martha Grace, David Eugene, Mary, Omer Dean, Ruth, Elaine, and Thomas Delbert.

They were a hardworking and close family. Ann, as she was known, was very smart and graduated from Binghampton High School with top honors and many scholarship offers. She gave that all up to marry her sweetheart, Joseph David Taylor, whom she met at a church activity. They were married December 5, 1950, in the Mesa, Arizona Temple and later raised 11 children together.

They lived in Wilcox, Pomerene, and St. David, Arizona; Barstow, California; and Honeyville, Utah, where Ann loved and served in various capacities in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her children were raised in a gospel-centered home and together they rise up to honor her. Ann was well-known for her breadmaking, canning, and quilting skills, which have been passed down to much of her posterity.

All her children, grandchildren, and hundreds of others were blessed with quilts of their own to treasure. Ann loved music and played the piano and organ for church and choirs for more than seven decades. She was proud to have many accomplished musicians among her children and grandchildren. Ann was also an extremely hard worker.

One of the wonderful accomplishments of which she was most proud was rebuilding and finishing walls, closets, and cabinets in her 100+ year old Honeyville home. She worked hard to make it a place that welcomed, sheltered, and fed all her family, loved ones, and even strangers. Ann was preceded in death by her son, Joseph Aaron (1971), her husband Joseph Taylor (2000), grandson, Joshua Martin (1990), three granddaughters, Monique Delobel (1980), Sarah Asay (2020), and Rebecca Cowley (2021), and two great-grandsons, Stephen Taylor (2015) and Charles Elias Story (2022).

She is survived by one sister, Elaine Tolman, of Honeyville, and ten of her children: Catherine (and Joseph) Martin, Dennis Taylor, David (and Cindy) Taylor, Sharon (and Sam) Shimp, Karen (and Andrew) Asay, Kumen (and Connie) Taylor, Rama (and David) Cowley, Thomas (and Jamie) Taylor, Olive (and Michael) Layton, and Earl (and Michelle) Taylor, as well as 59 grandchildren and 72 great-grandchildren. Ann passed away peacefully on August 26, 2023, surrounded by some of her children, at the Maple Springs Care facility in Brigham City, Utah.

We thank the people there for the excellent care they gave her. Her services will be held at the Honeyville 1st Ward Chapel, 2620 West 6980 North, Honeyville, Utah, at 11:00 a.m. on September 8, 2023. The service will be recorded and uploaded to her online obituary later. Viewings will be held the night before on Thursday, September 7, 2023, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

and prior to the service the next morning from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m., both will be at the church house. Interment will be in the Honeyville, Utah Cemetery. To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Alice "Ann" Nelson Taylor, please visit our floral store.
