Taylor Ann Denny
Heartbroken, the family of Taylor Ann Denny, born April 5, 1996, announces her passing after a tragic car accident on a snowy North Dakota bypass on October 5, 2018. Taylor was just twenty-two years old.
Taylor graduated from Verrado High School in May 2014. With great ambition and a zeal for creativity, Taylor pursued a career in cosmetology while still attending high school, graduating from West-Mec days later. She enjoyed a successful career with Great Clips where she was named “Stylist of the Year” in 2016. Most recently she styled for a loyal client base at Keep It Cut. Taylor was well loved not only by her clients but also by her many friends, as demonstrated by the massive outpouring of their kind words. The tragedy of Taylor’s death has revealed her short life was lived full of love for others, and in return, she was loved immensely.
Taylor’s memory will be cherished always by her parents, Wade Denny and Julie (Frazier) Denny, and her three younger brothers; Kolton, Logan, and Joshua. She is survived by the biological daughter she adored, Jana Renee, who by Taylor’s gift of adoption lives to be her greatest legacy. Taylor is treasured by her large extended family including her three living grandparents; Kathleen Denny and Jim and Delores Frazier, and dozens of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Taylor is predeceased by her grandfather, Charles A. Denny, Jr.

We so sorry for your loss and pray you will feel surrounded with love from friends . Thinking of you, wishing you hope in the midst of sorrow, comfort in the midst of pain.
Wade and Julie, I am so very sorry for your loss. I remember when Taylor was born. I am sorry I did not know Taylor, I know I would have
liked her as I did you and Janet in school. I remember you both so well in school. Your parents were great friends also. I remember the
delicious peanut brittle that your mother made and sent to me.
Julie, I had not heard from you in a few years so I wasn’t sure if you still lived in Goodyear.
My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
Mr and Mrs. Denny, I did not know your beautiful daughter, I read her obituary in the paper. I am a total stranger to you but I would like you to know that I am so sorry for the loss of your Taylor. So tragic and so young.
May God give you peace as you go forward.
I did not know Taylor as an adult, but am very saddened about your loss. My love and prayers are with you. I am so glad you have the support of your family and friends.
On behalf of the entire West-MEC Staff and Governing Board we offer our deepest condolences. Taylor was a success story and we were very proud of her.
Our hearts are with you at this time of great loss.

Mr and Mrs. Denny, my deepest condolences, I did not know your daughter, but as a distant Mounts cousin who lives in Peoria, I wanted to let you know how sorry I was to read about her passing, as were many of Myra Nell Mounts Denny’s cousins here in AZ.
