Beverly R. Taylor (Jillett), 84, died unexpectedly late Friday night in her home in Gun Lake, MI.

Beverly was a lifelong member of SS. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church where she taught CCD for many years. She was the Wayland Township Clerk for 20 years. She loved reading, knitting and crocheting, jigsaw puzzles, her afternoon soap, and spending time with her loved ones and friends. She really enjoyed eating dinner with her family at the Blue Dragon restaurant in Caledonia.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Beverly’s family asks that flowers not be sent. There will be an intimate graveside service held at a date to be determined.
