Obituary

Mary Elaine Taylor, born on June 15, 1934, passed peacefully in her New Smyrna Beach, Florida home, surrounded by love, without illness.

She leaves behind a legacy of family, joy, and cherished connections. Mary is survived by her devoted children: Michael and Kim Richardson of New Smyrna Beach, Susan and Ronald Shane of Fisher Island, Florida; Linda and Douglas Proulx of New Hampshire; and Diane Coston of Vermont; as well as 7 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind nieces, nephews, and many longtime friends who were touched by her warmth and kindness.

Originally from Laconia, NH, Mary spent her younger years in Nashua and Merrimack, NH. In 1991, she settled in New Smyrna Beach, where she volunteered at Bert Fish hospital for 19 years. Mary was a cherished member of the Eastern Star for over 60 years. She married Robert B. Richardson on Jan 10, 1952, who passed away 5 years and 2 days before Mary’s passing. Her sister, Marion Taylor Halgren of Pennsylvania, survives her. Mary found joy in simple pleasures, her most recent being watching Blue Bloods. Her memory lives on in the hearts she touched.

    Mary was the sweetest lady, she use to come to our shop to get her hair done. My friend worked beside me and Mary came to her . We had lots of great conversations with her. Her husband also waited on her,and they would go to Dairy Queen when they left. Sorry for your great loss.Fondly
