On May 28, 2015, our beautiful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt, Sharon Taylor Stroud, returned home to her Father in Heaven.
Sharon was born March 19, 1940, to Glade and Edna Taylor in Salt Lake City. Later moved to American Fork and then Loa. She loved growing up in Wayne County with her brother, LaVaa and sisters, Trudy, Clara, and Jeanine.
Sharon married Keith W. Stroud on August 25, 1961, in the Salt Lake City Temple. They have been best friends and sweethearts for 54 years. They were blessed with seven children: Sherri Lee Dove (Daniel), Susan Belnap (Val), Gary Keith Stroud (Tammy), Sandra K. Shannon (Roland), Greg Taylor Stroud (RaQuett), Stacy Barnes (Timothy), Stephanie Pace (Eric). She loved each of us, profoundly.
Sharon was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She served, ever faithful, in many church callings. She especially loved serving in the Relief Society. Many were blessed by her countless acts of service, good meals, encouraging words and through her prayers. Her thoughts were never far from her Heavenly Father, His Son, Jesus Christ and His Gospel. Her faith in eternal families gives us all hope that we can be together forever.
Her parents, Glade and Edna Taylor and her brother, LaVaa Taylor, precede Sharon in death.
She is survived by her children, (listed above), twenty-eight grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren.
She leaves a legacy of love, service, hope, and faith.
MOM, we love you and will miss you everyday, until we meet again.
