Published 3-19-13

ENID, Okla. — Funeral service for Wilbur L. Taylor will be 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 20, 2013, at Zion Lutheran Church, Fairmont, with Rev. Timothy Dorsch officiating. Burial will follow in Zion Lutheran Cemetery. Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangement. The family will receive friends from 6-7:30 p.m. today at Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home.

He was born to Volney and Louise Polwart Taylor on the centennial family farm in Fairmont, Okla., on Sept. 6, 1925. He passed away to his heavenly home on Friday, March 15, 2013.  

Wilbur was a lifelong member of Zion Lutheran Church in Fairmont, Okla, where he sang in the choir and held a number of offices during his membership, which spanned some 80 years. Wilbur sang in a quartet on numerous occasions.

On Aug. 14, 1949, he married Imogene Nobis at Zion Lutheran Church. This past August, they celebrated 63 years together.

Wilbur worked and retired from the Garfield County District 1 bridge crew after 30 years. However, his love was farming, where he raised wheat, cattle, pigs and three daughters.

He also was an avid softball player. In his youth, he played on the Fairmont Softball team. He passed that love on to his daughters and grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife, Imogene of Fairmont; daughters, Annette Mason (Kirk) of Ringwood, Nancy Nelson (David) of Carrier, and Lorraine Brainard of Enid; nine grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and numerous other family members.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and a brother Tom Taylor.

Memorials may be made to Zion Lutheran Church Building Fund with Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home serving as custodian of the funds.
