Maryann Taylor Rhine, 74, passed away at Logan Health Care on Aug. 12, 2021 from Covid-19 complications.

Maryann Taylor Rhine was born on Jan. 5, 1947 in Dinuba, California. Maryann was raised in Squaw Gap, North Dakota. She attended grade school at Leland elementary and high school in Sidney, Montana. As a child she spent most of her years with Aunt Mary Umback and Uncle Roy Reddrick from the age of one years old. She lived with them until they passed away when she was 18. In 1965, she then moved to Missoula to live with her mother Alice Bailey, five sisters and one brother. She then had a daughter in 1966 and a son in 1968. She married Thomas O. Taylor on Sept. 12, 1968. That same year they moved to Columbia Falls. She then had another daughter in 1970 and one son in 1972.

Maryann was lucky to meet another love of her life that she spent the remainder of her life with, William E. Rhine. They married May 16, 1998. They loved to camp and four wheel as much as her little body would allow.

Maryann is preceded in death by her parents Alice Bailey, John Raymond Erickson; one of her loving husbands Thomas O. Taylor; precious son Thomas G. Taylor, and a much loved grandson Mike Wilcutt, and three sisters, Della, Carrie and Suzie; and one brother Raymond.

Maryann is survived by her husband William Rhine and children Elizabeth Willcut, John Taylor, Kimberly Stratton; stepchildren Terry Rhine, William Rhine, Lavita Vineyard; sisters Sarah Crouch, Roxie Post; and many amazing grandchildren, great-grandchildren and beloved in-laws.    

Fly high our spunky little lady.

A celebration of life will be held later this fall. Columbia Mortuary in Columbia Falls is caring for the family.
