OBITUARY:

Nancy J. (Ryder) LeBlanc Taylor of Woburn passed away Sunday evening, January 14th, after an extended illness. The beloved wife of the late Charles Taylor and the late Morris LeBlanc, she was seventy-one years of age.

Born in Belmont, she was the daughter of the late George A. and Marie H. (Roach) Ryder. Mrs. Taylor moved to Woburn at an early age and was a graduate of Woburn High School with the class of 1953. She married Morris LeBlanc after high school and together they had three children, with whom they shared many happy years together until Mr. LeBlanc passed away unexpectedly as a result of an auto accident in the early 70’s. Mrs. Taylor returned to the work force and became Office Manager at Lux Transportation in Woburn. Late in the 1970’s Mrs. Taylor met “ Charlie” Taylor to whom she was married for over twenty years.

Mrs. Taylor loved the water and during the summer months she would spend a great deal of time at the Quincy Yacht Club and Marina, where she and her family would spend hours boating in and about Boston Harbor. Often they would go to Salisbury and vacation there, but the closest spot to her heart was Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, where she and Mr. Taylor retired to.

Mrs. Taylor continued her education through out the years, taking courses in the evening and learning all different aspects of the transportation business. She was also very talented at crocheting and cross stitching. Since moving back to Woburn, Mrs. Taylor had been very active in all the activities taking place at her residence on Place Lane, particularly Bingo and cards.

In addition to her parents, her first husband, Morris LeBlanc, and her second husband, Charles Taylor, Mrs. Taylor was predeceased by her brother Kenneth Ryder.

She was the devoted mother of Marilyn L. Lage and her husband John D. of North Andover, Jacqueline “Jackie” Spinazola of Cape Coral Florida, and Mark S. LeBlanc of Woburn, the dear sister of Alden Ryder of Arizona, Janice Corby of Wilmington, David Ryder of Westford, and Priscilla Savlen of Woburn.

She was also the loving grandmother of Rachelle LeBlanc of Woburn, Peter M. and Raquel Spinazola, both of Woburn, and one great-granddaughter, Briana.
