Susan and John began their family in Medford, before set- tling in Rumson in 1974. Always known to be outgoing and welcoming to all, Susan spent her years enjoying the beach and being part of the local community.
She was predeceased by her brothers Horace Furness Taylor III and Timothy Dwight Taylor as well as her sister Mary Elizabeth Taylor Borel. She is survived by her beloved husband of 53 years, John; their loving children, John F. and his wife Arleen and Elizabeth Kelleher and her husband John. Also surviving are her brothers, John Taylor and his wife Linda, and J. Steven Taylor and his wife Hollis; her sister, Ann Laverty and her husband Michael; her adored grandchildren, Drew, Will, Taylor, Kyle, Jack, Grace and Nicole; many nieces and nephews; and her brother-in-law, Scott Borel.
