Diane Taylor passed away at her home in Wheatland, Wyoming on Monday, June 20, 2022 after a courageous, heart-breaking battle against pancreatic cancer.

The daughter of Glendo ranchers Don and Marge (McVay) Sanborn was born in Douglas, Wyoming on Monday, February 16, 1959.  Diane graduated from Glendo High School in 1977, and then went on to attended Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington, Wyoming.  Raised on the ranch her grandparents homesteaded 100 years ago, Diane learned a lot about cows, horses, family, and life.  Along side her mom, Diane was a life long member of the American Legion Auxiliary, John Price Unit 15 in Glendo.

In 1981 Diane married, David Taylor, who worked for the Wyoming State Parks.  Diane found herself living in South Pass City St. Historic Site, then Medicine Lodge St. Archaeology Site in Hyattville, Wyoming, before they retired to Wheatland.  When living in South Pass Diane worked as a vet tech in Lander, Wyoming and then at Hyattville she worked as a cowhand for the Hyatt Ranch, the Mercer Ranches, and fed bum lambs for the Hamilton’s.  While living in Hyattville she and her friends entered many pig wrestling contests, and also formed a bowling team that went to the National Bowling Center in Reno, Nevada.
