Taylor, 67 of Grove City, died Friday, December 1, 2023 at her home near Grove City.  Funeral services will be 2:00 pm, Tuesday, December 5, 2023 at Paynesville Evangelical Free Church near Paynesville.  Visitation will be 4-7:00 pm, Monday at the church and for one hour prior to the services.  Burial will be in Burr Oak Cemetery near Grove City.  Arrangements are with the Johnson Funeral Home in Paynesville.

Patricia Marie Taylor was born November 29, 1956, in McLaughlin, South Dakota, the daughter of Donald and Geraldine (Schmidt) Hlavinka.  She attended Presho High School graduating in 1975.  She continued her education at Oak Hill Christian College in Bemidji, graduating in 1980.  While attending college she met her future husband, Steven Taylor. They were united in marriage on April 4, 1981, at the Oak Hills Christian College Chapel. This union was blessed with four sons (one deceased) and a daughter.  They settled down in Minneapolis for several years before moving to Grove City in 1990. The family relocated to Somerset, Pennsylvania in 1997, where they lived for twelve years. In 2009, they were on the move again, this time making their home in Fulton, South Dakota before finally returning to Grove City in 2017.

Patty was a faithful member the Believers Fellowship Church.  She enjoyed children (babysitting frequently), along with gardening, and being surrounded by plants and flowers. She thrived in her kitchen and made excellent pies and cookies. She loved spending time with her family and especially enjoyed being “Nana” to her six grandchildren. She will be remembered for her special ability to make a house a home.

Patty is survived by her husband of 42 years, Steven; children, Ryan (Rhoda) Taylor of Vaughn, MT, Derek Taylor of Rapid City, SD, Annamarie (Olbin) Martinez of Mitchell, SD and John Taylor of Mitchell, SD; grandchildren, Dontae, Winston, Nevaeh, Dylan, Liam, and Alaina; and siblings, Theresa (Stan) Singery and David (Mindy) Hlavinka.  She was preceded in death by her parents, infant son, Zachary and sister, Peggy Schmidt.
