Marva Perry Taylor passed away peacefully at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center July 14, 2000.

Born July 21, 1917 in Mapleton, UT to Parley Pratt and Ardilla Gallup Perry. She grew up on the family farm, attended Mapleton Elementary School and grad-uated from Springville High School in 1936. She married Leonard Burt Taylor, her high school sweetheart, April 27, 1937. The marriage was solemnized in the St. George Temple. She was active in the LDS church, serving in every organization; Springville community and auxiliaries, loving her work as a volunteer at the art gallery. But her life was centered around family. Her mind and hands were never idle. She did beautiful handwork and was an avid reader. She started her own business, a clothing store in Springville, which was expanded into a family business known as Store 224. She was active in the business for over twenty years until moving to Provo under the name Taylor's Bench. She will be missed by many, but always remembered by those who have survived for her honesty, industry, generosity, support and love.

Preceded in death by her parents; two brothers; two sisters; a great-grandchild; and her husband, Burt. Survived by her children, Patricia (Richard) Clyde, Orem, UT, Alan (Cheryl) Taylor, Orem, UT, Diane (Dale) Wright, Twin Falls, ID, and Craig (Kathie) Taylor, Mapleton, UT; 18 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; a sister-in-law, Alene Perry; and many nieces and nephews.

Services will be 11 a.m. Wed. July 19, in the LDS chapel at 355 E. Center, Springville, UT. Family and friends may call 6-8 p.m. Tues. at the Wheeler Mortuary, 211 E. 200 S., Springville or at the Church one hour prior to services. Burial, Springville Evergreen Cemetery.
