She used her talents of detail and organization at Bullocks, yardage, and bookkeeping; she even designed and general contracted her own home in Glendale, California.

She was a talented seamstress, and the kind of Mother that would stay up all night to finish beautiful dresses for her daughters. She had a kind heart and was nice to everyone she met. She especially loved and cared for her grandchildren and great grandchildren and had a personal testimony of her Savior, Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her three children; Cheryl (Mark) Lyon, Janine (Lloyd) Duff, and Blaine (Corrie) Watkins. Alfred and Doreen have 16 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and a brother, Earl Taylor.
