She was born April 22, 1943 to William N. and Ozell Wells Taylor in Lincoln County Tennessee. She was a member of the Baptist church and worked as a clerk at several stores over her lifetime. Lavern was devoted to her family. She focused on caring for her children and then helping them take care of their families. She shared all she had with them. Her cooking was amazing and she took pride in teaming up with her son-in-law, Tommy Ables, and grandson, Josh Goosby, to feed “everybody” any chance she could. She would supervise Tommy and Josh’s garden each year and took joy in giving her friends and family vegetables from it. She loved her pets and had fur babies for as long as anyone can remember. Princess and Buster will miss her greatly.
She is survived by her son, Greg (Sherri) Parks and daughter, Margie Ables.
Her sisters, Tricia (Johnny) Tucker, of Portland, TN and Joyce Law of Meridianville, AL.
