Catharine Anne LeGros Taylor

Catharine Anne LeGros-Taylor of Summerlin, Las Vegas, passed away suddenly on September 19, 2018. She was 40 years old.

Katie was born and raised in Swarthmore. She graduated from Strath Haven High School in 1996, and from West Virginia Wesleyan with a degree in Sociology in 2000. In 2003, she married Matthew Ian Taylor, then a medical student at Drexel University Medical School. After his graduation, they moved to Minot, North Dakota, where he served in the Air Force. They later moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where Matt trained at the Cleveland Clinic and Katie graduated from Cuyahoga Community College with a Certificate in Massage Science. In 2012, they moved to Las Vegas, where she gave birth to two beautiful children.

Katie is survived by her husband Matthew and children Brooklyn and Maverick; her brothers Robert P. LeGros of Rochester, N.Y., and Paul P. LeGros of Swarthmore; her mother Susan Packard LeGros of Swarthmore; her father Robert R. LeGros and stepmother Barbara Franzoso of Portsmouth, N.H.; and her in-laws John and Darlene Taylor of Hermitage, Pa.

A memorial service and celebration of gratitude for Katie’s life will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at Swarthmore Presbyterian Church, 727 Harvard Avenue, Swarthmore, PA 19081, followed by a reception in Fellowship Hall.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to Sunrise Children’s Hospital, 2795 East Desert Inn Road, Suite 200, Las Vegas, NV 89121.
