Lynette L. (Ceaser) Taylor, age 45, of Boxford, formerly of Wilmington, passed away Saturday, October 6, 2012, at the Kaplan Family Hospice House, surrounded by her loving family, after a long, courageous battle with brain cancer. Born on July 6, 1967 in Woburn, Lynette was the cherished daughter of William and Karen (Scott) Ceaser. She grew up in Wilmington and attended Wilmington Public Schools. Lynette was a graduate of Wilmington High School, Class of 1985.

Lynette was a very outgoing person. She made friends very easily and could get along with anybody. She had a strong faith in God. This faith was evident in recent years, with everything that Lynette had endured, when most people would have given up, she still kept a positive attitude and continued to fight her battle to the very end.

Lynette reconnected with her high school sweetheart, Jim Taylor, several years back and the couple were married on August 9, 2008. The family was very involved in their community of Boxford. Lynette also loved to visit their vacation home on the coast of Maine, it was the place where she could spend the most time with her family.

The most important thing to Lynette were her children. Her three daughters meant everything to Lynette. She was a devoted mother to them and loved to spend time doing whatever activities they were involved in. Her love for her family is incredible and she will forever be greatly missed by them and by all who knew and loved her.

Lynette was the beloved wife of Jim Taylor of Boxford. She was the devoted mother of Makayla, Jacquelyn and Kylie Scalli of Boxford. She is survived by her parents; William and Karen (Scott) Ceaser of Wilmington. Lynette was the dear sister of Deborah MacLellan and her husband William of Bedford. She was the daughter-in-law of Maryellen Taylor of Stoneham, sister-in-law of Kerrin Mazzola and her husband Paul of Londonderry, Ray Taylor and his wife Laura of Braintree. Lynette was the loving aunt of Olivia, Nicole, Jessica and Ryan MacLellan, Gina and Jillian Mazzola, and Lily Taylor. Lynette is also survived by Ann Scott, Bobby and Debbie Scott, Ellen Blackburn and their families, along with many other Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends.

  13. Andreas Papaliolios says:

    Lynette was perhaps the single sweetest and most memorable person I ever knew. 35 years and 3000 miles later, I can still picture her running in elementary school gym class (2nd grade, I think), as the only girl wearing a skirt, and having to hike it up as she ran.

    Please remember her always, as I shall.

    Dear Deb and Family,

    My deepest condolences on your loss. I have been at a loss for words since learning about Lynettes passing. I haven’t been in touch with her for many years, but she always held a special place in my heart. The years that I spent growing up with Lynette (Lyndy as I knew her) were filled with happiness, and she was one of the main reasons for that. After reading some of the other posts here, I see that she continued with that magical way of hers to light up a room whenever she entered.

    I will never forget you Lynette…you will be deeply missed.

    Deb, Bill, and Karen,

    I’m still in shock, my heart goes out to you as well as our prayers for the Lord’s peace to be upon you in this time of mourning.

    Jim, Makayla, Jacquelyn and Kylie,

    I had the privilege of growing up with your mother and was able to watch as she grew into a caring, young, virtuous women. Although I have never met you girls, and was unable to stay in contact with your mother, I know that she must have been a wonderful role model for you to aspire to be like. As you all grow into adulthood, you can keep your mothers memory alive by living your life for the Lord with the integrity your mother has instilled in you at an early age. Your mother was a wonderful women, we are honored to have known her.
