(Bonnie) Morgyn Taylor January 29, 1925 ~ July 25, 2014 August 9, 1951 ~ July 9, 2014 E.G. “Butch” Manry left this earth on July 25, 2014, to be with his loving wife of 67 years and into the loving arms of their savior, our Lord Jesus Christ. Butch was born on January 29, 1925, in Salem, AR to Fred and Lula Manry. He had one sister, Eula May, and one brother, Bob. He finished high school in Arkansas. Then, in 1941, moved to Washington with his family. In 1943, he enlisted in the United States Navy and finished basic training in Farragut, ID. After that, he went to Palo Alto, CA for advanced training and then to the Admiralty Islands, where he served until 1946. In 1945, Butch went home on leave and met and married the love of his life, Geneva Copeland, to whom he was married for 67 years, until her passing in August, 2013. He spent some time on a ship in Discovery Bay, then Pier 91 in Seattle, before being honorably discharged in 1946. After being discharged, Butch and his wife came back to Wenatchee to start a family. He worked on Rock Island Dam, then Bennit’s Garage, before owning and operating Doneen Garage and Parking. He then went to work for Joe Welty Ford as the Sales Manager until he retired in 1985, to spend time with his wife, who had medical problems. When he retired, he and his wife leased out their home for a year, purchased a travel trailer and went to Florida. Along the way, they made many special stops to visit old friends and family. Butch loved to play golf and for many years played with three special golf buddies, who sadly all preceded him in death; he continued to play until he physically could no longer do so. Butch also loved to fish and bird hunt. Many times he would get up early in the morning and go fishing, and still be back in time for Sunday service. Butch was a member of Wenatchee Valley Baptist Church for 50 years. He served as a Deacon of the church for 35 years, and Church Treasurer for 25. He was also a Sunday School Director, Teacher, and did other ministries during his membership. Butch also served a four year term on the Executive Board of the Northwest Baptist Convention. Butch was a devout Christian, a caring loving husband, a wonderful father and a terrific friend. He will be missed by all, but we know that he is truly in a better place. He is now pain free, and happy in the arms of his loving wife and our Lord Jesus Christ. Butch is survived by three children, Gloria Osborn of Wenatchee, WA, Patsy Vail of Oak Harbor, WA, and Randy Manry of Wenatchee, WA; ten grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren. Preceding him in death is his sister, Eula May Kelly; and his parents, Fred and Lula Manry. A Committal Service for Butch will be held Monday, August 4, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. at the Wenatchee City Cemetery Mausoleum. There will be a time of sharing after at 1636 Meadow Ridge Drive, Wenatchee. Arrangements are by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee, WA. B. (Bonnie) Morgyn Taylor, 62, a kind, intelligent, loyal, and beautiful soul, passed away much too soon, on Wednesday, July 9, 2014. Morgyn was born on August 9, 1951, and raised in Cashmere, WA, by her mom and dad, Lois and Bill Forte, and her special Gramma, Mabel Taylor. She grew up in her family’s beloved house on the Wenatchee River, a place where she came back to visit many, many times throughout the years. Upon graduating from Cashmere High School in 1969, she moved to Seattle, WA to attend the University of Washington — forever a proud Husky! Soon moving to Los Angeles, CA, she became a respected businesswoman in the field of finance, working 35 years for the same company. Morgyn loved traveling and also spent many happy times on Maui with the Ballinger family. She was an avid theater fan, often going to New York to see the latest production. Morgyn looked forward every year to attending the Monterey Jazz Festival. Christmases were either spent with her family in Cashmere, where Morgyn loved being embraced by both sides of the large Stoltenberg family, or in California with her other family, the Ballinger’s, who also considered her part of their family! She was loved by many. Another favorite holiday in the Taylor-Forte family was Memorial Day. Beginning with Gramma Mabel, then Lois and Bill, Morgyn continued to carry the torch for American Legion Post #64 in Cashmere. Rain or shine, Morgyn would help and/or simply just be there to honor the veterans on Memorial Day at the Cashmere Cemetery. Walking through the flower-decorated cemetery later in the day, tiny American flags waving in the breeze, was a time honored tradition with Morgyn. She was so very proud of her dad, “Big Bill,” who served at Pearl Harbor during WWII. When he was ailing, Morgyn was by his side, loving him and fighting for the best medical care available. When Lois could no longer live on her own, Morgyn was by her side, loving her, and again, searching for the best alternative. She gave devoted attention to her mom and dad, sometimes from afar in California, but also on extended visits to Cashmere. Although extremely independent, Morgyn was fierce in her love and loyalty for those she cared about. And, being forthright (often with wit), she didn’t hesitate to tell you so if need be! Recently, Morgyn came to Wenatchee to be with her mom, Lois, who was ill and who then passed away on May 7, 2014. Still in Cashmere, and not feeling well herself, Morgyn soon received a terminal diagnosis, passing away on July 9, 2014. Her last weeks were spent in Palm Springs, CA at the home of dear friends, John Ballinger and Rod Davis, where she was lovingly cared for during this time. You will be dearly missed Morgyn. Morgyn is remembered by family and friends: Nancy Bruehl, Suzanne Hoskinson, Teri Johnson, Flo Stoltenberg, John Ballinger, Rod Davis, Jan and Ric Evans, Julie Armstrong, Mike Oliphant, Jesus Anaya, and Juan Jimemez, along with many others. Please join us to celebrate, honor, and remember together, the lives of both Morgyn and Lois on Saturday, August 9, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. at the American Legion Hall in Cashmere. In lieu of flowers, we think Morgyn would appreciate, if you desire, a donation in her name to the American Legion, Revlon Breast Cancer Foundation, or a local non-profit that helps women recover from violence.
