Leave a Lasting Impression.  Here's How.
Taylor Family Endowments

Keeping alive the memory of our loved ones is important. Even more so, is knowing that their wishes will be honored forever. 

The endowments established by Ken and LouAnn Taylor are a meaningful reminder for daughters Terrie and Jodee. With endowments supporting community health, women's leadership, and more, their parents' kindness continues to touch the hearts of those in need. 

By giving it forward, we can honor the past and ensure a vibrant tomorrow for lives in our region.
