Watson-North Funeral Home is honored to be of service and ministry to the family of Mrs. Betty K Taylor age, 98, of Winchester, TN. 

Mrs. Betty Keith Taylor, age 98, passed from this life, on December 10, 2017 at Horizon Health and Rehab in Manchester, TN. She was a native of Franklin County and was born to the late Moses and Mary Keith.

Mrs. Betty Taylor was born on October 9, 1919 and was a homemaker and had proudly attended 12 years of school.

If Mrs. Betty could speak to us today, she could perhaps give each of us a lesson on life. Living 98 years, we are certain that she witnessed several changes over the course of her years. We are certain that she would share the many ups and downs, the struggles and the victories that one would encounter in over 98 years of living.

History reflects a few of the following in October 1919. Perhaps, her grocery list looked something as follows;
½ lb. bacon - .21
1 doz. eggs - .61
1 lb. butter -.66
½ lb. oleomargarine or lard - .18
1 lb. cheese -.41
14 qts. Milk- 2.10
1½ pks. Potatoes- .77
2 lbs. onions - .13
3 lbs. cabbage -.14
2 lbs. dried beans- .23
3 qts. Apples- .27
3 oranges-.12
4 bananas -.15
12 lbs. bread-1.28
2 lbs. flour-.16
3 lbs. sugar-.33
1 pt. molasses -.12
¼ lb. tea-.15
½ lb. coffee-.23

She is survived by very distant relatives, but, leaves to mourn her passing, a caring physician, Dr. Glenn Davis of Manchester, and her longtime caregivers/adopted family at Horizon Health and Rehab. She will be remembered for her sweet and gentle soul, one who loved gospel music, being read to and humming to the tunes on a Karaoke.

Visitation will be on Friday from 12:00- 2:00 p.m. The funeral service  will be conducted from the chapel of Watson-North Funeral Home at 2:00 p.m. with Josh Jackson officiating. Interment will follow in Watson-North Memorial Park with Volunteers serving as pallbearers.

The public is invited to join us as we celebrate the life of and mourn the passing of this sweet lady.
