Elaine Taylor passed away on June 4, 2020, at the age of 89, after a brief illness. At the time of her death, she was a resident of Ashleigh at Lansdowne in Leesburg. She grew up in Chicago, IL, and married her high school sweetheart, Arthur E. Taylor Jr., after his graduation from West Point in 1952. Art’s Army career had them moving 22 times over the course of 30 years. Everywhere she went, she made it home, and she never met a stranger. Elaine is survived by her daughter, Camille (Gary) Zornjak of Leesburg, VA; her grandchildren, Michael Zornjak of Arlington, VA, Kelly Thomas (Bryan) of Clarksville, TN, and Jennifer Zornjak of Chicago, IL; and her great-grandson, Levi James Thomas of Clarksville, TN. She is also survived by many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends who loved her dearly. Memorial donations may be made to Boulder Crest Retreat, PO Box 117, Bluemont, VA 20135.
Her funeral Mass was held on Monday, June 15, at 10 a.m. at St. Theresa Catholic Church in Ashburn, VA. Internment with her beloved husband of 41 years, Art, will follow at West Point, NY.
