Beth grew up on a farm near Thornbury, ON, and graduated from Ontario College of Teachers and University of Toronto. Her 41-year teaching career included one-room schools, small town schools and 27 years in Toronto (East York).
She loved photography, travelling and card making. Her adventures took her across Canada, United States, Europe, Central and South America, Russia and South Africa, which included several missions trips.
She married Lloyd Taylor in 1976. On retiring, they moved to Thornbury, ON and continued to travel the globe and regale their friends, family and seniors groups with stories and pictures of their adventures. In 2005, they moved to Ste Anne's Court in Fredericton, NB where they enjoyed their beautiful apartment and entertaining family and friends.
A special thank you to the ER and 3SW medical teams at Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital and the amazing team at Hospice House who cared for her in so many ways.
