JoAnn Taylor

August 16, 1939 — October 15, 2022

JoAnn (Mohn) Taylor went to her eternal home on October 15, 2022 at Good Samaritan Society in Mountain Home, Arkansas, at the age of 83, with her family by her side. She was born to Norman and Dorothy Mohn in Natchez, Mississippi, on August 16, 1939. She was the oldest of six children.

She is survived by the love of her life, husband Glenn Taylor, of 61 years; two sons, Stewert (Toni) Taylor and Phillip (Shannon) Taylor, of Mountain Home, AR; two brothers, Terry Mohn (Sheryl) of Millers Creek, NC, and Paul Mohn of Trinity, NC; seven grandchildren - Kelly Campbell (Jed) of Harrison, AR, Mallorie Taylor, Anna Taylor, Bradley Taylor, Kinsey Taylor, and Abby Taylor all of Mountain Home, AR; and three great grandchildren - Jazlyn Porter, Jaecie Campbell, and Reagan Stone all of Harrison, AR. She left behind a host of cousins, nieces and nephews, as well as many great friends and her beloved sidekick, Bodhi.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Norman and Dorothy Mohn of High Point, NC; sister, Sue Ward of Roanoke, VA; sister, Marlette Atchley of Cleveland, TN; and brother, Norman Mohn, Jr of O’Fallon, MO.

She loved the Arkansas Razorbacks, Dallas Cowboys, and crafting with her grandchildren. JoAnn shared a love for life with everyone she met. Her famous line, “I sure do love yall!” will forever ring in the hearts of the people who knew her, especially those who were a part of her and Glenn’s 40-year youth ministry.

Growing up, she became the church pianist at the age of 13 for her father, and carried on with her beautiful, God-given piano playing and singing for many years to follow. She was a graduate of Mountain View High School, Mountain View, Arkansas. She was the captain of the cheerleading squad. She served as the Office Manager at Ozark Family Ministries in Mountain Home.
