Marilyn Mae Taylor,
Age 93,
Died of Natural Causes at her residence in Hemet, CA on August 21, 2020.
Born July 14, 1927, in the State of New York, to Charles and Jesse Munson.
She had three brothers, Howard Munson, Stewart Munson, and Don Munson, an older sister
Jeannette Wright and sister Patricia Romaine Maanao.
She attended schools in Jamestown through High School, then the family moved to Vista, CA
where she attended Palomar College.
She met Roy Taylor in Escondido and married in 1949. Roy was a Navy serviceman which
meant they never stayed in one location long. Marilyn loved being a Navy wife and enjoyed the
adventure of these frequent moves. They lived in San Diego, Alameda, Pensacola, Guam,
Memphis, Vista, and finally settled in Escondido. They spent their retirement years in San
Jacinto, and after her husbands death, Marilyn moved to Menifee, then to Hemet.
Three sons were born to them, Paul, James, and Ron.
Marilyn worked at various part-time jobs including her favorite and longest at the Greyhound
Bus Station in Escondido.
Marilyn was active in her church as a youth worker, Sunday School teacher, piano and organ
player, and Awana leader. She traveled when she could visiting Alaska, the Caribbean, and
Hawaii, with additional travels in an RV across most of the US.
She is survived by her brother Don Munson, her sons and extended family including Paul and
Debbie Taylor of Escondido, James and Celeste Taylor of Menifee, Ron and Laurie Taylor of
Escondido, and Bill and Sharon Thompson of Escondido. Grandchildren include Rebecca
Hurbon of Vista, Jen Hernandez of Escondido, Erin Taylor of Escondido, Kim Anaya of Valley
Center, Ann McNiece of Menifee, Carrie Consalvi of Menifee, Brad Wagner of Sacramento,
David Taylor of Texas, and Christian Taylor of Orange County.
Great-grandchildren include Caleb, Rachel, Simri, Alisa, Kylie, Padgett, Peter, Corrigan,
Teadora, John, Jackson, Olivia, Elijah, Wesley, Miles, Logan, and Hudson.
There is no service planned and her arrangements are to be buried with her late husband at
Riverside Memorial Cemetery. No visitation or graveside service.
Murrieta Valley Funeral Home is making all arrangements. If necessary, call 1-951-696-0626

Dear Family,
We found out today that Grandma was received by Riverside National Memorial Cemetery on September 2. I asked how long it would be until the new memorial marker was placed at the site and they weren't sure. I will let you know when I find out. Groups are not allowed to gather but I'm pretty sure they would receive smaller family groups. Another thing we can find out and will post.
I've enjoyed reading the posts on the memorial page. Please feel free to revisit as often as you feel like it.

I will forever be grateful to Mom for her loving and gracious acceptance of me as her daughter-in-law.
She also referred to people as Esmeralda and Hezekiah! :) And we still use the words "finsome snoose" in our home. I do not know the proper spellling and doubt that they are really Swedish, but Mom used them and so do we. Lots of fun memories! Love you Mom.

Toward the end she answer, "Whoopty Do" to just about any new thing you told her.

Things I will always remember about Gramma:

- How she always had cookies waiting in the cookie jar when we'd visit her in Hemet
- Her calling me Dilbert
- Her asking me if I was, "Still playing that git-fiddle?"
- Playing her organ and that old game on her computer (Gapper?)
- Those statues in her house of Japanese men cutting fish
- How her swamp cooler was always breaking and my dad was always fixing it
- Picking strawberries in her little garden by Grandpa's workshop
- How if I sat down by her at family stuff, she'd always pull me close and put her hand on my knee when she spoke

Especially when I was young, I remember her creating an environment of love and welcome when we would visit her. When I got older, I remember her as a quiet presence who would surely tell me something interesting if I just went and sat quietly with her.

Love you, Gramma.

Oh my goodness yes - Gapper and the swamp cooler! And the iced tea. I still drink Lipton powdered iced tea to this day because of her!

She called everyone a Dilbert. I don't know if it was a term of endearment or saying that you were being a Dilbert.

She's gonna get your gizzard!

Oh yes, I remember this!

Dear Family,
We are sharing this sight so we all have opportunity to share our memories of Grandma Marilyn. Please take a minute to look through the picture and enjoy, as well as add some words and pictures of your own. As Jim and I were probably the last to talk and pray with her, I can share that her daily wish was to go home to Jesus and I am happy that that wish is now fulfilled.
