DOW, Taylor Eden


∼ August 15, 1992 – May 5, 2016 ∼
It is with the greatest sorrow that I announce the passing of a beautiful and vibrant soul – my daughter Taylor, at the young age of 23.

Survived by so many including her incredible sons Dallas aged 6, Denver aged 4, her step dad Jeff Thomas and her mother (Mum) Leanne Dow.

On her mother’s side Taylor leaves behind Grandma (Elizabeth Dow), Grandpa (Thomas Dow), Aunt Karen (Jeff Hexamer), cousins Guy (Cindy) and family, Meghan (Zack) and family, Kyle, Daniel, Lars, Aunt Tracey (Bill), cousins Adrian (Felicia), Alex (Caroline) and family, Andrew, Uncle Eric,  Aunt Tammy, cousins Margaret and Morgan, Aunt Marilyn cousin Joshua, Aunt Michelle, cousins Brandon, T.J. and Callum.

Taylor was predeceased by her father Richard Randall Misener (Randy) in 2001 and by her Uncle Del in 2014. On her father’s side she leaves behind Aunt Shelley, Uncle Robbie, cousins Billy Jack and family, Kimmi and family, Angie and family, cousins Alex and Austin, Uncle Tony, cousins Silas, Karissa, Johnny, Kyleah, Auntie Cassie (Dave), cousins Courtney (Reau) and family, Chris, and Aunt Sarah (Bo). Taylor is also survived by Great Aunts Linda (Bill) Straton and family, Aunt Janet and family, and Aunt Ginger (Larry) Stanely and family.

Taylor is survived by an extended family including Grandma Betty Anne Cameron, Gail and Len Kelly and family, especially step dad Shane, stepbrother Craig Kelly and Auntie Dawn.

An extra special thank you to Karl Jensen a man we have been fortunate to encounter throughout Taylor’s journey. With an incredible passion and dedication for the tortured souls of addicts, Karl taught me patience, understanding and most of all compassion which helped me to have a better relationship with my daughter. The world is a better place with people like Karl who dedicate themselves to helping those who cannot help themselves. Thank you Karl, from the bottom of my heart.

Taylor’s bubbly personality was succumbed with pain. Pain so intolerable, that she sought relief from narcotics. My beautiful daughter spent five years fighting addiction until she lost her battle on May 5th.  The only solace of her death is in knowing that she passed while in caring hands and is finally at peace. We thank all the staff at SAH, especially the emergency, surgical and intensive care units.

Taylor gifted us with two beautiful boys. There was no public service. This disease had my child for five years……it was time she came home.

There is a memorial site on the Beggs Funeral Home web page ( and Facebook.

We ask that donations be made to any rehabilitation centre, T.A.A.G. (The Animal Assistance Group 705-575-7030) or to her sons, In Trust For Dallas and Denver, care of Leanne Dow at the Northern Credit Union.
