She was born Oct. 15, 1917, to Lawrence and Marguerite Ross, in Clark County. She was the third of five children. She was a gifted singer, doing much solo work as a young woman and in her church choir at First United Methodist Church in Charlestown. She taught Sunday school for many years, was active in UMW Circle and held many church positions through the years. She was a member of the Psi Iota Xi Sorority. She had a sweet, patient, and generous nature coupled with great business acumen. During World War II she worked at the Charlestown Bank as a teller and bought and fixed up old homes. When Taff returned from Naval Service, they developed Taff's Gas Service, where she worked in sales and bookkeeping through the 1970's. She was an avid gardener and baker who enjoyed sharing her flowers, produce, and pies. Her priorities were her faith in Jesus Christ, her family, and her friends. One of the "Great Generation," she will be deeply missed by those who knew her.
