Marion A. Taylor


     On Thursday, March 30, Marion (Kolasinski) Taylor of Silver Lane in Sunderland, died peacefully at the New England Health Center.   Her family knew her as Tiny, earning this nickname because of her low birth weight when she was born on the Ninth of October, in 1932. She was one of ten children and spent most of her young life in Shutesbury.

She was a graduate of Amherst High School in 1951, entering the Army as a hospital orderly, spending most of her two years of service in Korea. She then spent time working at Frank’s Nursery, and Goodwill both in Hadley. Her final place of employment was in Sears as a sales clerk until her retirement.

She is survived by her son Robert and Grandson Cory.   She is also survived by three of her ten siblings, Robert Kolasinski, James Kolasinski and Doris Prim.

She was predeceased by her parents, David and Veronica Kolasinski and six of her brothers and sisters, Sophie Kinder, Lois Lambert, Frank Kolasinski, Dorothy Kimball, Veronica Lessard and David Kolasinski.

Her love of cats was evident when she found 2 adult cats hanging around her house, Trouble and Critter. She welcomed them into her home, both living to the ripe old age of 15.   For the past several years, she and Robert have been blessed to have Fred the monster 20 pound cat living with them.   He will miss Marion’s love and attention.

   Please forego flowers as she would be much more comfortable if donations were made to: Dakin Humane Society, P.O. Box 6307, Springfield, MA 01101-6307. Thank you.

Services will be at Wrisley Funeral Home later in the week, with burial at the Mass Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1390 Main Street, Agawam, MA. When arrangements have been secured with the cemetery.
