Sharon L. Taylor, 79, of New Philadelphia passed away suddenly on Monday, March 13, 2023, in the Park Village Health Care Center at Dover.

She was born on October 1, 1943, in Dover to the late Donald and Thelma Borden Prosser. Sharon was also preceded in death by her husband, Bruce M. Taylor on August 7, 2022, and a sister, Marsha Porter.

In her spare time, Sharon enjoyed reading, working in her flower garden and being with her childhood friends, Carol King, Linda Marburger and Janet Liggett.

A wonderful and loving mother and grandmother, Sharon will be sadly missed by her children, Michael (Lori) Taylor of West Virginia, Amy (Ned) Nicholson of South Carolina; grandchildren, Amanda and Hannah Taylor, Ben and Taylor Nicholson; and her brother, Paul “Dave” (Cathy) Prosser of Canton.
