In Celebration of

Nancy Taylor

April 17, 1949 -  October 10, 2018

It is with profound sadness that we announce Nancy’s passing, which happened peacefully at Hospice Care Ottawa, May Court Hospice on October 10th, after a recent diagnosis of cancer.

Nancy was the daughter of the late Berenice and Leonard Webber of Guelph, Ontario. She is lovingly remembered by her husband John, daughter Stephanie Coughlin (Ryan), son Timothy (Caryn), and sisters Kerrie Bras and Maureen Webber. Nancy’s grandchildren Thomas, Elly, Gwen and Ava will all greatly miss their ‘Nana’.

Although Nancy made many friends during her time in Guelph, Winnipeg, Mississauga and most recently, Ottawa, her special place will always be Norway Bay, Quebec, where the Taylor family has enjoyed summers since the late 19th century.

A reception to celebrate Nancy’s life will be held at Beechwood National Memorial Centre, located at 280 Beechwood Ave., in Ottawa, on Friday, October 19th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. At Nancy’s request, please “park your tears at the door” and bring your sense of humour. A private internment will take place at a later date.

The family would like to thank the caring team at the May Court Hospice, for their dedication and excellent level of care. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Hospice Care Ottawa - May Court.

I just wanted you all to know that we’ve been sending love throughout the journey. We’re so sad to hear of her passing. But we know that she’s in a place now that has endless diy projects to keep her surroundings beautiful until we all join her.
