Petty Taylor

May 7, 1950 — Dec. 29, 2012

Peggy Virginia Taylor was born Peggy Virginia Starkey on May 7, 1950, in Greenville, S.C., to James Timothy and Delphia Lela Starkey. She left this world to be with her lord after battling health issues for several years on Dec. 29, 2012. She was preceded in death by her parents, “JT” and Dolly (as they were known); grandmother, Ada Starkey; and half-sister, Shirley. She leaves behind her loving husband, Bill; sister, Barbara and husband, Don of Kentucky; cousins, Marvin and wife, Faye; great-aunt Ethel; aunts, Lucille, Virginia, Irene and Peggy; and uncles, Alvin and Raymond of South Carolina.

Peggy was a transplanted southern girl, graduating from Norwalk High School in 1969 and going on to earn a bachelors degree at Cal State Long Beach. She also began working at All State Insurance after high school and spent 43 years in the insurance industry at various positions of claims adjusting. She was very proud of her work. In late 1989 she moved to Placerville, where several months later she met her husband, Bill. They married in 1991 and moved to Camino in 1996, where they enjoyed the mountain life until her passing.

Peggy became involved with the Humane Society in early 1992 and over the years rescued numerous cats, dogs, birds and just about any creature in need. It became her passion. She had a flare for painting was an avid reader. She enjoyed baseball, road trips, exploring new places and things, camping, stock car races, going to movies and watching TV. In her last year she joined Women in Recovery, where she made many new friends and found loving support. God bless all of you ladies. She will be sorely missed by many but most of all by her loving, devoted husband, Bill.

A memorial of her life will be held at the Chapel of the Pines, 2855 Cold Springs Road in Placerville, on Saturday, Jan. 26, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers or gifts please make a donation to Humane Society United States at in her name, or mail donations to 2100 L St. NW, HSUS Dept. MEMIT9, Washington D.C. 20037. She would love to know she was still doing something to help animals.
