"All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother." -Abraham Lincoln
Jaleen Savage Taylor, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend, passed away on May 22, 2013, following her daughter Darlene in death by just four days.
Jaleen was born in Salina, Utah, on Oct. 28, 1928, to Leah Maud Baker and Jesse Raymond Savage. She was the third of five children. She grew up on a farm in Bicknell, Utah, riding horses and milking cows alongside her two younger brothers. She loved dancing and spending time with friends.
At just 17, she met the love of her life Arnold Taylor. They married and started their eternal family on June 27, 1946, in the Manti LDS Temple. In their early married life, they lived in Virginia, Texas and throughout Utah while Arnold served in the military. They eventually made their home of 55 years on Crockett Avenue in Logan. Jaleen's greatest joy was as the doting mother to four children: Darlene, Linda, Karen (died as infant) and Doug, and loving grandmother to nine grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren, each of whom will remember her laughter, kindness and loving service. She made friends easily and was always willing to help someone in need or simply share a laugh.
Jaleen worked for many years on the surgical floor at the Logan LDS Hospital. She also devoted her time to working in the Logan LDS Temple and serving in various callings in her ward and stake.
She loved working with her hands and spent many hours crocheting, canning, baking and making candy. She spent countless hours teaching these skills to her kids and grandkids.
After the death of her sweetheart in 2009, Jaleen lived with her daughter Darlene, who took loving care of her for three years. For the last year, she lived at Legacy Village in Taylorsville. Her family could not have asked for better care by loving hands. She will be dearly missed by family and friends.
She is survived by brothers Jesse Kent Savage and Shyrl Ben Savage (Joan); daughter Linda Stander (J.R.) and son Doug Taylor; nine grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Arnold; daughters Darlene and Karen Taylor; and sisters Roween and Thelma Savage.
Funeral services for both Jaleen and her daughter will be Friday, May 31, at Allen Hall Mortuary, 34 E. Center
Street, Logan, Utah. The viewing will be from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., memorial services at 1 p.m., followed by interment at Logan Cemetery. Condolences may be expressed online at www.allenmortuaires.net.
