Pamela "Pam" Pearl Taylor

July 7, 1956 ~ November 3, 2022 (age 66)


Pamela Pearl (Pam) Taylor, 66, passed away surrounded by her family on Thursday, November 3, 2022 at 10:40pm at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She was born in Wabash, Indiana to Thomas Maggart and Marie Bolin on July 7, 1956. In 1982, she met Ernie, who would become her husband on May 9, 1986. Pam worked many years at Marsh Supermarket, formally Mace Foods in Peru. One of her biggest passions was hunting for bargains at garage sales and thrift stores. Pam had the biggest heart and loved helping others. Recently, she worked at Ida’s New Beginnings, where she got to love and spoil the kids there.

Pam mothered several children and they survive, Dawn Adams of Kentucky, Bryan Maggart and spouse, Alicia of Peru, Krystal Maggart of Peru, LaDemma Burns and spouse Patrick of Twelve Mile, Ernest Taylor Jr. of Edinburgh, Scott Taylor of Peru, and Ricky Taylor of Peru. Pam is also survived by her siblings, Carolyn (Sis) Alexander, David Maggart and spouse Sherry, Gary (Mikey) Maggart and spouse Judy, James Maggart, Timothy Maggart and spouse Sue, Jeff Maggart and spouse Karen, Chris (Choochie) Wheeler and partner Tammy, and Lynn Devivo and spouse Scott. She was Nanny to Kristen and spouse Ryan, Mitchell, Aerion, Vincent, Jakob, Mason, Rylee, Hayden, and Wyatt. Most recently she became a Great Nanny to Asher. She had many nieces, nephews, and cousins. To say that she had a large family is an understatement.

Pam was preceded in death by her parents, and two brothers Larry and Steve Maggart.

She will be greatly missed by her family.
