TAYLOR, Lynn (Boreanaz)
TAYLOR - Lynn (nee Boreanaz) Age 54, passed away in the comfort of her family on Saturday morning, January 30, 2016 at the Vermont Respite House in Williston, VT following a valiant six year battle with cancer. Born in Buffalo, NY on May 29, 1961, she was the daughter of Patricia (Sansone) Boreanaz and the late Harold J. Boreanaz. On September 12, 1987, Lynn married William W. Taylor in Buffalo. Lynn was a 1979 graduate of St. John Neumann High School in Buffalo, continued her education at Buffalo State University and also later took courses at the University of Vermont. Following college, Lynn moved to Stowe where she worked in the food and beverage industry for several years before embarking on a career change. Lynn went into Real Estate sales, first working for the former Vermont Realty Exchange, later Century 21 Realty both of Waterbury, and then started and became part-owner of New England Landmark Realty in both Waterbury and Stowe. Active in the Waterbury community, Lynn was a member of the Revitalizing Waterbury board of directors, worked on the Capital Campaign Committee for the Waterbury Train Station restoration, served on the Waterbury Recreation Committee and was a volunteer EMT for the Waterbury Ambulance Service for eleven years. In addition, Lynn coached the Waterbury Rapids Swim Team and volunteered as a part of the youth girls soccer program. The true focal point in Lynn's life has always been the people she surrounded herself with; spending time with her husband, children, large extended family and many friends enjoying times exploring the Vermont outdoors, listening to live music, sharing stories around the bonfire, star-gazing, cooking and traveling. She is lovingly remembered for her bountiful and beautiful vegetable and flower gardens, which she took great pleasure and pride in. Lynn is loved and mourned by her husband of 28 years, William W. Taylor of Waterbury; their daughters, Megan F. Taylor of Waterbury, Carly P. Taylor of Burlington; her mother, Patricia Boreanaz of Buffalo; her siblings, Laurie Carra and her husband Charles of Buffalo, Harold Boreanaz of Waterbury, Brian Boreanaz and his wife Cheryl of Buffalo, and Robert Boreanaz and his wife Lucille of Buffalo; as well as nieces, nephews and extended family.
