She graduated from Parsons High School and attended Parsons Junior College. She and Murland “Mike” Taylor were married on May 8, 1949 and they spent 71 devoted years together.

She was a Girl Scout leader and a Cub Scout den mother. She had many interests. She loved playing cards, was a good bowler and was quite the dancer. She and Mike could “cut the rug” on the dance floor. Charlene was an excellent cook and an avid sports fan, but most of all a devoted wife and mother. Family was her priority and she loved spending time surrounded by kids and grandkids. She was the heart and soul of the family.

She was preceded in death by her parents and sisters Mary Kay Diskin, Florine O’Reagan and Lucille Banhart. The Funeral Mass will be at 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, with Fr. Curtis Robertson officiating. The Rosary will be prayed at 10 a.m., Wednesday, at the church just before the Mass. Burial will be in Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
