History / Biographical
John Joseph Taylor (born 25 June 1915) and Marguerite Taylor (nee Grisak, 14 April 1917-1 December 1984) were married in 1940. John joined the military in November of 1942 and trained in Camrose, AB; Chilliwack, BC and Prince George, BC before deployment to France where he was injured twice on D-Day. Afterwards, he was sent to Birmingham General Hospital in England to recover from a severe arm would before his return to Canada. They had one son, Grange Taylor, born in the summer of 1943 while John was stationed in Chilliwack. While he was away Marguerite wrote “Johnny” frequently, sometimes multiple letters in a single day. She would often start by reminding him how much she missed him and then reassure him that she, and later the baby were doing fine in spite of how much they missed him. Marguerite often writes of how she prays for John and that the war will end soon. She would recount the goings on of her day and what she had done since she had last written and how she cherished his letters. Several letters mention ones that she did not send because she felt they were too sad and did not want to bring him down since he was already so far from home. Early on she writes of a fear of the doctor, but that she will go because she is pregnant and that John would want her to go. She also recounts local gossip regarding the local prisoner of war camp and the dances that she goes to with her friend Annie. She signs most of her letters with a lipstick kiss and “I love you 60 millions & millions more then last time” or something similar. Prior to his military service John was as an industrial painter working at the airports being built for military flight training that were built across southern Alberta. As a result, he developed what they would later discover to be lead poisoning from the lead-based paint. Throughout his military career he was afflicted with ill-health. He would later be diagnosed with Huntington’s Correa, as would his son Grange. Marguerite was a devout catholic and an original member of St. Basil’s Catholic Church in north Lethbridge. She and John lived in Lethbridge until 1961 when they moved to Calgary so that John could find work. While John was away with the military she lived with her family and upon his return they purchased a house through the veteran’s housing program. John was an avid photographer and artist. Included in the donation are several examples of his drawing and photography including photographs of his family and military companions and drawings from his time overseas.
