Irma V. Tyre Taylor, has gone to be with her Maker. Irma was 84 years young. Her wonderful wit and great sense of humor will be missed by all who knew her.
She was born April 5, 1927, in Boxley, Georgia, to Benjamin L. and Agnes Lona Thornton.
Irma loved the outdoors. Her interests were fishing, cooking, reading Louis Lâ€™Amour books and watching her family grow as the years passed. To be able to see her great-grandchildren was a gift she always cherished.
Irma worked as a real estate person and was a Notary Public. She worked as a construction superintendent, and ran her own cleaning business. â€śHave Broom Will Travelâ€ť was her calling card.
She enjoyed her work with the LDS Church. Irma and Haroldâ€™s marriage was solemnized in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple in 1975.
Irma was preceded in death by her husband, Harold Dean Taylor, Sr.; her parents and some of her brothers and sisters. Irma was one of 13 children. Her remaining family mostly live in the Southern States.
She is survived by her daughter Linda and her husband Donald (Romrell) of Blackfoot; son Harold â€śButchâ€ť Dean Taylor, Jr. and his wife Mary Ann (Brewster) of Boise; five grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held at 11a.m. on Thursday, May 12, 2011, at Hawker Funeral Home, 132 S. Shilling Ave., Blackfoot. The family will meet with friends and family from 10 to 11 a.m. prior to services at the funeral home. Irma will be laid to rest alongside her husband Harold in Dayton Cemetery, in Dayton, Idaho.
Her family wishes to thank the nurses, doctor and all the caregivers at the Harbor Care Unit of Boise, Good Samaritan, Boise, for their loving care and concern for our mother during her six-year stay in their care, especially their compassion toward the last days of her life.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial contributions be made to Good Samaritan Society, Boise Village, 3115 Sycamore Dr., Boise, Idaho 83702 or to the Alzheimerâ€™s Association, 1111 S. Orchard, Ste. 200, Boise, Idaho 83705.
