Patricia Emily Brown Taylor (age 82) passed away with her family by her side Thursday evening, September 29, 2022.
Patricia was born to Robert Alfred Brown and Virginia Edith McKendrick on January 21, 1940 in Salt Lake City, Utah. When she was young she took classical ballet and was able to perform in the Nutcracker. Later, as an adult, she began snow skiing, enjoying time with friends at Brighton Ski Resort.
Pat attended South High School from 1955-1958. She loved her school years and excelled in her studies, but her most favorite part was meeting the love of her life, Alfred Taylor. Pat was involved in many extra-curricular activities: Jazz Appreciation Club, Swimming Club, Bowling Club, Social Arts Club, Assembly Committee, and the Indian Exchange Participant’s Program. After graduation Pat moved to Provo, Utah to attend Brigham Young University. After one year she decided that college was not for her and she returned home to continue her life with Al. She also began working for State Savings and Loan and enjoyed it very much!
Pat and Al were married May 12, 1960 in the Salt Lake Temple. Their first home was in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1976 they built their dream home and settled in Cottonwood Heights, Utah.
Pat had many talents, she was a “Domestic Goddess!” She was an amazing seamstress, sewing anything from doll clothing and dress up costumes to beautiful clothing for her and her children. She helped publish a sewing magazine while attending South High School. She was an incredible cook and loved having family and friends over for celebrations and holidays. Her sugar cookies were famous and cannot be duplicated! Pat wrote beautiful poetry, she started a card making business and people loved them so much that she could hardly keep up with the demand! For several years Pat worked as a bank manager at Prudential Federal Savings and Loan.
Pat was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved the church and served faithfully wherever she was called. She was the Relief Society President for 6 years and whole-heartedly loved her calling and the people she served! Pat was also an active member of Daughters of Utah Pioneers, serving in her Camp’s leadership for many years.
Pat was a loving daughter, sister, mother, wife, and grandmother! She was a devoted companion to Al. They enjoyed traveling the world together making memories and creating life-long friendships. Pat was the most loving, caring, and dedicated mother and grandmother. Her family was truly her greatest joy!
She was a wonderful friend and was loved dearly by all who knew her!
After years of longing to be with Al, they are finally together again in a joyous reunion! Pat is survived by her son, Michael Jon Taylor, Sandy, Utah; her daughter, Kimberly Harames, Mountain Green, Utah; and four grandchildren: Nicholas, Austin, Taylor, and Emily.
