Ruth Taylor

Ruth Chandler Taylor was given life by her Creator and was born on January 20, 1936 to John Bertram Frederick Chandler and Marjorie Gaythwaite in Edgware, Middlesex, United Kingdom. She received the gift of Holy Baptism and became a child of God and confessed her baptismal faith in the rite of Confirmation and was admitted to the altar to receive the medicine of immortality, Christ’s life-giving body and blood.

God blessed Ruth’s life with many special people as she served God in her vocations at home, at church, at work, and in the community. She was educated in a Christian school. Being a “Leggy” student, she was interested in sports. In her teenage years, she entered nurses training for approximately two years. In 1956, she met an American airman named Rondo Taylor, courting, and love was to follow. In October 1957, they became engaged and on April 7, 1958 were married. A honeymoon was in store, and they flew to the British Chanel Islands just off the coast of France. On return they took residence in the village of Pinner, Middlesex until Rondo’s tour of duty in Great Britain was finished. Ruth entered the United States as an immigrant, and along with Rondo took up residence in the town of Pipestone, Minnesota, Rondo’s hometown. In September 1962, they moved to Del City, Oklahoma. In 1975, they moved again, out into the country this time. Ruth loved the country life, as did Rondo, and there they stayed. In later years they acquired a larger acreage, or small farm, where they continued to enjoy and remain until
Ruth’s death.

Finally, on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, God blessed Ruth with a holy death and took her to rest in the arms of Jesus.

Ruth is lovingly remembered by her husband, Rondo, of Choctaw, Oklahoma; one brother, William Chandler of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; two nephews, John Chandler and James Chandler; and one niece, Rebecca Chandler; brother-in-law, Clarence J. Taylor; sister-in-law, Lynette Taylor-Kremer; and other family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Marjorie.
