Elizabeth "Betty" (Taylor) Tarr

January 10, 1939 — July 29, 2023

Indiana

On July 29, 2023, while surrounded by her family, Elizabeth "Betty" Taylor Tarr, age 84, lost her courageous battle with cancer and joyfully entered into eternal life with her Savior Jesus Christ. She was born January 10, 1939 in Aultman, PA to the late Samuel and Nora (Wirick) Taylor.

Her husband of 55 years and the love of her life, Phill, is left with the challenge of navigating life without Betty by his side. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her children, Dawn Dunsmore and her husband Bob (Indiana); Mike Buzzinotti (Johnstown); Sam Buzzinotti and his wife Denise (Indiana); Dave Tarr and his wife Bonnie (Blairsville); Beth Michaels and her husband Mark (Brush Valley). Nine grandchildren, Jimi (Jen) Dunsmore, Jill (Steve) Cochran, Matt (Nicole) Dunsmore, Michael Buzzinotti II, Zachri Buzzinotti, Jordan (Garrett) Gibson, Noah (Lisa) Tarr, Anthony Michaels and Amanda Michaels. Ten great-grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren completed the circle of her cherished grandchildren.

Betty loved to share with others how proud she was of her family. Just days before her passing, she was telling everyone who came into her room to care for her, how blessed she was with her family, how beautiful they were and how much she loved them.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her nine siblings and two grandsons, Glenn and Chad Wisner. Betty was the last remaining sibling in her family and was looking forward to a glorious reunion with them in Heaven.

During her lifetime, Betty was employed at Blairsville Machine. Betty and Phill loved to travel and see the world. She and Phill took an adventure-packed motorcycle trip to Alaska, went to Paris, France and traveled from the east coast to the west coast stopping to see various sites. They enjoyed spending winters in Florida.

Family and friends will be received Tuesday from 1-3 and 5-7 PM at Bowser Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Inc., Homer City, with funeral services immediately following at 7 PM at the funeral home. Her son-in-law, the Reverend Robert Dunsmore will be officiating.
