Julie Taylor – ‘Granny-Can’

On 7th March 2022, suddenly in hospital, Granny-Can, aged 63 years of Great Harwood. The dearly loved wife of Peter, much loved mum of Joanne and Andrew, loving step-mum of Lizzie, amazing Granny-Can of Sam, Brodie, Macie, Georgia, Tommie, Megan, Eva, Ellarose and Alfie, loving sister of Linda and David, also a dear sister in law and auntie.

Julie and Peter ran the Royal Oak in Clayton-le-Moors for a couple of years and then Julie worked in various factories and warehouses. She was hardworking and committed to doing her very best and thrived on the banter on the shop floor. Julie loved her work so much that she would scan items in her sleep. She adored her holidays throughout Europe, adoring the sunshine. She always had her suitcase packed weeks in advance. Once seen, never forgotten, she was the life and soul of every party and could always be found dancing and singing. Julie lived each day for the day and was always happy and smiling. Her ‘Keep Fit Kit’ was beer, scratch cards and cigarettes. She leaves her family a host of wonderful memories all sprinkled with love and laughter. They can’t help but smile when thinking about their lovely mum.

Please wear brightly coloured, casual clothing (no black) and those with painted nails – the brighter the better.
