Daria Taylor Obituary

COLUMBIANA – Daria ‘Dee Dee’ Taylor, 79, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, March 30 at Salem Regional Medical Center.

Dee Dee was born on May 16, 1944, in Salem, a daughter of Harold and Virginia (Rohrman) Burkle. A 1962 graduate of Columbiana High School, she attended Bowling Green State University and also Chicago Institute of Design, where she met her future husband, Sherwood Taylor II.  They got married May 2, 1964 and together they raised two children. 

Dee worked as a loan officer at City Loan Financial in Columbiana.  After retirement, she worked as a caregiver to adults and children, while helping Sherwood with his floral business.

Dee Dee was a people person, who loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She enjoyed giving them gifts and Easter baskets, cooking for crowds and baking for Christmas.  She would talk anyone into a game – bingo, triomonos, cards, yahtzee – while making everyone laugh. She still attended her high school class reunions and stayed in touch with classmates.  Dee also took care of her garden, and loved nature, flowers and animals.  A reader, she often visited the Columbiana Public Library. 

She leaves to cherish her memory her daughter Tara (Gary Franko) Taylor of Pittsburgh; two granddaughters Morgan (Scott) Stich of New Castle, PA and Malory (fiancé Evan) Taylor of Columbus; four great-grandchildren Bostyn, Luke, Lincoln and Liam; sister Lana Moff of Columbiana, niece Donette (Terry) Falk; three sisters-in-law Sallye Trobaugh, Cindy Persinger, Machele McCalister; and her two precious cats, Punkin and Baby.

Dee Dee was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Sherwood, who passed away November 5, 2014, her son Todd Taylor, who passed away December 26, 2022, her granddaughter Shelby McKay Taylor, nephew John Moff, and brothers-in-law Jack Moff and Donald Smith.
