Allie Lee Taylor Lawler
July 25, 1927 ~ September 13, 2017
Allie Lee Taylor Lawler was born in Evanston, WY, on July 25, 1927 to Francis T Taylor, Sr. and Allie Edna Brown. She was born prematurely at seven months, kept in a shoe box on the oven door to stay warm and given eye droppers of whiskey to keep her heart going. It has kept going for 90 years! She truly had a zest for life. She grew up in Mountain View and Evanston, WY, graduating from Evanston High School.
She moved to Ogden when she was 18 and met the love of her life, William Eugene Lawler, while working at ASU PW Detachment in Ogden. They were married three months later on January 18, 1946 in Salt Lake City, UT. After his discharge from the Army, they lived in Ridgway, IL, Evanston, WY, and finally settled in Ogden, UT.
Allie held many positions over the years. She worked in the medical field, in education, as a secretary, and was always a florist/designer. She served as President of the Ogden Garden Club. She was very active in the church she loved. She taught religious education, directed both children and adult choirs, decorated the church, played the organ and sang for many of the Catholic Churches in the area for over 40 years. She served as President of the Promotors of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for four terms, was President of the Council of Catholic Woman and served three terms on the St Joseph Church Parish Council, to name a few. She received multiple religious awards, including Woman of the Year and the Pope Pius X Award.
She is survived by her greatest joys, her husband and their children, Francis (Margaret) Lawler, Teresa (Dennis) Hawkins, Joyce Hawkins, Mary (Tom) Ryan, Deana Balistrire, Geraldine Lawler-Suski, and Thongsy (Chanhday) Darasouk; 18 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren.
