Olive Taylor Allred

Olive Taylor Allred, 34 days shy of 101, passed away March 3, 2020 in Delta, Utah.  Olive was born April 7, 1919 in Lyman, Wayne County, Utah to Platt S. and May Maxfield Taylor. Mom married Ervin L.  Allred on June 17th 1940.  That marriage was later solemnized in the Manti Temple.  Her beloved husband passed away on November 23, 1977 at their home in Delta, Utah.

Mom was one of four children, Nathan, Rayola, and Beryl, all deceased.  Mom’s childhood days were spent in McCornick and South Tract, Utah.  Mom had many stories and memories of growing up on a farm, milking cows, riding horses, climbing hay stacks, playing in ditches and drowning quimp. 

Mom was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, serving in many callings.  She served a 15 year mission at the Delta Deseret Industries, a calling she often talked about.  Mom loved to crochet and knitted several hundred hats for the church humanitarian department.

Mom is survived by her daughter Linda (Robert) Grygla; Steve; and Howard (Vickie).

A graveside service will be held Saturday, March 7, 2020 at 3:00 PM in the Delta City Cemetery under the care of Olpin Stevens Funeral Home. Online condolences can be offered at www.olpinstevensfuneralhome.com

The family would like to thank the Millard Care and Rehabilitation Center for the tender care and loved provided for mom the past 6 years.

What a wonderful lady "Grandma Allred" was. She was a grandmother of Shenagh and Greg Allred that lived across the street from us in Delta. My children, Tim and Deanna, walked the two blocks to her home almost daily with Shenagh and Greg to visit her when they were little.They loved her homemade cookies. She was so good to all of them. Sorry about your loss but know she is united with her loved ones in heaven.

Olive was a very special daughter of God and had a great impact on countless lives. She was one of the greats that I met when we first moved here. Thank you Olive! See you on the other side! Much love!

So sorry for your loss. Olive was such a sweet lady. I sure loved working with/ for her at the A&W. There was lots of fun and laughter there.
