Marion Kolasinki Taylor

My gram, Marion Kolasinki Taylor of Sunderland, left this earth on March 30, 2017. My father informed me on May 8. By then she was already buried. 

So this is what I want people to know about my gram. 

I was her only grandchild and she loved me dearly; how lucky was I? She came from a big family and talked often of her siblings and growing-up years. 

She had a love of all things nature and was an avid gardener, always had a garden.

She walked every day until she could no longer. She took bus trips all over the place but her favorite was the casino trips; she would be excited when she won.

Gram was a strong, independent woman. She rarely asked for help.

We talked often and would have lunches together. Every spring since I was small we would wait for Frosty’s to open and then would go for Frosty fries. She always made a big deal for holidays and made me feel special. 

We had our ups and downs but who doesn’t? We always came back around.

I will miss her smile, her big hugs and seeing her smiling face when I pulled up to take her for a ride. 

My gram was the best gram you could ask for. 

She is now in the arms of the Lord she loved. Rest easy, Gram, and I will see you again some day. You will always be in my heart.

Your loving grandson,

Cory Taylor
