Sybil Taylor

April 8, 1923 — June 1, 2024

Sybil Varner Taylor died June 1, 2024 at the age of 101 at her home in the Bold Spring Community of Franklin County.

Sybil was born April 8, 1923 in Franklin County and was the daughter of the late Frank and Flora Rice Varner. Sybil attended school in Franklin County and continued her education at Rabun Gap College for two years and transferred to Lincoln Memorial University where she graduated in 1944. While in college, Sybil met the love of her life, Guy Lawrence Taylor. After they graduated, Guy was drafted and served in World War II. They married when he returned home in August of 1945 and began their life together.

After graduating from college, Sybil began her career as a teacher. She was an accomplished educator and enjoyed teaching students, but also enjoyed learning. She continued her education throughout her career and changed positions several times. She taught high school, home economics, eighth grade Georgia history, served as elementary school librarian and finished her teaching career as a kindergarten teacher after obtaining her masters degree from West Georgia College.

After retiring from teaching, Sybil and her husband Guy returned to Franklin County and built a home on her family farm. Sybil was a lifelong member of the Methodist Church and was actively involved in the Women's Group at each church she attended. She also had an avid interest in family history, genealogy, and tracing family connections. This led to her involvement in the Franklin County Historical Society. Sybil was a member of the Franklin County Retired Educators. She enjoyed gardening and working in her yard. Her goal was to have something blooming each month of the year. Sybil was a loving and devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.

Sybil was preceded in death by her beloved husband Guy L. Taylor, her parents Frank and Flora Varner, and her brothers Pierce, Wayne, Dwight, John, and Fred Varner. Sybil is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Susan and Richard Martin, granddaughter Ann Martin and her fiancé Keever Turner, sister Edith Copeland, sister-in-law Janet Varner, and many nieces and nephews.
