OBITUARY - WAYNE LEROY TAYLOR

Wayne Leroy TAYLOR, youngest son of James Riley and Nellie (FIGGINS) TAYLOR, was born February 26, 1915 and passed away on March 26, 2002. He died in the home where he was born and had lived his entire life.

Wayne grew up in a large family and attended Grace Country school north of the farm. He later graduated from Diagonal high school with the class of 1932.

Wayne's family was the center of his life. He especially enjoyed hearing his daughters and grandchildren sing. He logged many miles on his car, traveling from one musical event to another.

He was very proud of his farm and its heritage, taking over the family operation when his parents retired and moved to Diagonal. He loved his home and his farm.

Throughout his life he enjoyed hunting, fishing, dancing, restoring antique cars and caring for cattle.

Wayne always had a sparkle in his eye and was known for his quick wit and mischievous ways. He rarely complained and had a ready smile.

He served as a director of the rural school district and on the Diagonal school board. He was an upright man, respected by the members of the community.

He was united in marriage to Rowena LaRue EIGHME. Five daughters were born to this union who survive him: Roma Jean (Jeannie) HALSEY of St. Joseph, Missouri, Dixie LINKEY and husband Jim, Twyla BRECKENRIDGE, Debbie CUPPS and husband Ron, all of Kansas City, Missouri and Annie JENSEN and husband Clark of Grinnell, Iowa.

Also surviving are 10 grandchildren: Doug TAYLOR, Bobbi KELLER, Angi McCOLLUM, all of St. Joseph, Missouri, Shawn PERSELL, Tami LINKEY and Evan HIMMELBERG of Kansas City, Missouri, Ashley and Abby BRECKENRIDGE of Des Moines, Iowa and Geoff and Whitney JENSEN of Grinnell; eight great-grandchildren: Brian, Preston and Chelsea TAYLOR, Adam and Brycen McCOLLUM, Carson KELLER and T. J. and Anna PERSELL; and sisters, Velma AVERY of Des Moines and Verla Dean TAYLOR and husband Clyde of St. Joseph, Missouri and Lorabel TAYLOR of Diagonal.

Two special people who loved and cared for him, Freda CORBIN and Annabel WALKUP, also survive.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers, Forrest, Floyd, Clifford and Harold; sisters, Rena Belle TAYLOR, Frances PARKER and Bessie PERRY.

Funeral services were held Friday, March 29, 2002 at United Church of Diagonal in Diagonal with Reverend Karen GARRISON officiating. Judy NEWTON was the organist and vocalists were Bobbi KELLER, Angi McCOLLUM, Shawn PERSELL and Brycen McCOLLUM. Casket bearers were Doug TAYLOR, Ashley BRECKENRIDGE, Bobbi KELLER, Abby BRECKENRIDGE, Angi McCOLLUM, Geoff JENSEN, Shawn PERSELL, Whitney JENSEN, Tami LINKEY and Evan HIMMELBERG.

Wayne was laid to rest in the Diagonal Cemetery, Diagonal. Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home was in charge of the arrangements.
