ARMSTRONG - Mrs. Robert Taylor, 56, was found drowned yesterday morning in a pond near her farm home northeast of Armstrong.
--Mr. Taylor, who discovered his wife's body, said she apparently left the house early in the morning before any of the farm chores were begun. She had been in ill health for some time.
--Dr. W.A. Bloom, Howard County coroner, states no inquest will be held. Mrs. Taylor had suffered a nervous breakdown and the death was not accidental, Dr. Bloom reports.
--Mrs. Taylor, the former Velma Patton, was born Nov. 5, 1898, the daughter of the late Carson Patton of Clifton Hill, and Mrs. Patton, who resides at the Taylor home. Mrs. Taylor was married to Mr. Taylor on Thanksgiving Day in 1918, and had spent her entire married life on the farm near Armstrong.
--Besides her husband and mother, she is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Bill Trester, Jr., of Kansas City; a brother, Joe Patton of Clifton Hill; three nephews and two nieces. One child died in infancy.
--Mrs. Taylor was a member of the Baptist Church. Services will be conducted at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the Ralph Carr Funeral Home in Fayette by the Rev. J.M.
