Obituary for Jeannick M. Taylor

Jeannick M. Taylor, age 85 of Eden Prairie passed away on April 23, 2018 at The Colony in Eden Prairie, MN after suffering from a sudden stroke.

Jeannick was born on November 7, 1932 in Rennes, Brittany, France the daughter of Jean and Marie (Lecomte) Pariset. She married Jared Taylor on Dec 3rd, 1955 after meeting him in Paris where he was stationed as a sailor. They moved to Rice Lake, Wisconsin in 1958 where they raised their four children.

Jeannick’s proudest accomplishment was raising her 4 children and grandchildren. Though she held the important title of housewife, she wore many hats, keeping busy in the community;

• creative director in the Rice Lake 4-H group where she directed plays
• taught French out of her Rice Lake home to local children
• started KIKI manufacturing – a children’s clothing line sold at Dayton’s Department store
• started a Fast Food Restaurant in Rice Lake called “Bon APPETIT” with a specialty of French food recipes on the side
• participated in the Twin Cities Military round table discussions at Fort Snelling, Minneapolis, describing what it was like being a child in France during WWII
• Deeply religious, she was involved with the Catholic Church, the Evangelical Charismatic Movement, worked as a Spiritual Guidance counselor and had hoped to someday create a public spiritual event entitled, “The Festival of LOVE”.
• She loved people, flowers, gardening and painting.
• She had a delicious sense of humor, a delightful giggle and will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

Jeannick is survived by her loving husband of 63 years, Jared; children, Jennifer (Garry) Henderson of Chicago, IL, Veronique (John) McMillan of Minneapolis, MN, Jacques (Joii) Taylor of Atlanta, GA, Patrick (Jean) Taylor of Rice Lake, WI; grandchildren, Riley (Amanda) Henderson, Lily (Greg) McNally of Chicago, IL, Jared, Kristina, & Anna Taylor of Rice Lake, WI; siblings, Christiane (Philippe) Jacquet, Jean-Francois (Veronique) Pariset, Herve (Marie-Claud) Pariset, Catherine (Bernard) Drevillon, all from FRANCE; nieces and nephews, Emmanuel, Patrice, Anne, Isabelle JACQUET, Servane, Gwennaelle, Marion PARISET, Soazig, Goulven, Gildas DREVILLON, Gaud, Yannig PARISET, all of FRANCE.

She is preceded in death by her parents Colonel Jean L. PARISET and Annick M. LECOMTE, her brother Jacques PARISET who was killed in Algeria, at 22 years old while serving in the French military, step-mother Marguerite M (HERISSET) PARISET, and stepmother Louise R. (COULON) PARISET, all of FRANCE.
