She was preceded in death by her parents, Pete and Ruby Taylor; grandparents Milton and Rosa Gray and Jake and Maude Taylor; two uncles and two aunts. 

A memorial service is planned at Pilgrim Rest Church at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 20 with Bro. Jeff Thompson officiating. Visitation will  follow the service in the  fellowship hall. 

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Cancer Research, Baylor, Charles A Sammons Cancer Center, 3410 Worth Street, Dallas, 75246 in memory of Mary Ann Taylor Smith, or to a charity of choice.

Thanks for all of the prayers; she will be greatly missed.
