Patricia Frances (Guastamachio) Taylor
February 9, 1937 - December 6, 2020

Patricia Frances (Guastamachio) Taylor, age 83, passed away in New Port Richey, FL on Sunday December 6, 2020 with her daughter by her side after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was a true warrior. Born on February 9, 1937, in Hartford Connecticut, she lived in Orange Park FL for many years before relocating to New Port Richey to be near family after losing her husband Wayne. Pat loved children and ran her own day care business for many years. She loved Christmas and crafting, selling her crafts to buy toys as well as running toy drives for less fortunate children. She received several awards for her generosity. Pat was very sociable and made an impression on everyone she met. Her door was always open. She was loved by so many and will be missed greatly every day.

Survivors include her daughter Gail Casalini, son in law Michael Casalini and their dog Penny, six grandchildren, Cory Tippins, Arthur Genovese III, Chaila Genovese, Gina Carraro, Obed Genovese and Nicole Genovese, three great grandchildren, sisters Jacqueline Caglioni and Linda Cappelli, brother Joseph Guastamachio and many nieces and nephews. Pat was preceded in death by her husband Wayne R. Taylor, her son Arthur Genovese Jr. and her daughter Janice Genovese, mother and father Joseph and Josephine Guastamachio.

There will be no services due to the current pandemic. Please say a prayer for her to wish her well on her new journey.
If you wish you may donate a new toy in her honor and memory to your local toy drive. She also donated to St. Joseph’s Indian School and to St. Jude Children’s Hospital

    So sorry Gail. I loved talking with her when I visited mom. Mom said she was her best buddy at Angels. I’m sorry that we didn’t get the chance to visit the two of them together, before the pandemic. I know they would have enjoyed that.

    I am very sorry for Mom/Grandma’s loss. I remember our trip to Florida, she took Chaila and I on my first trip to Disney, it was a memory I will never forget. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    I consider it an honor to have known Pat. She was a unique person and she brought some wonderful people into this world. Her memory will stay with us in our hearts and minds. She may no longer be here in person but she will never be forgotten. “You may not see the bird but you can still hear it sing”

    My Aunt was truly the most beautifully unorthodox person of my lifetime! Her offbeat, unconventional personality won me over at 7 years old, and her influence on my life shows to this day.
    God bless you Gail and Michael, you were there for her the whole way! Love to you from the Eppersons.

    Aunt Pat was always the cool Aunt. She was the life of the party and so much fun. When I was little I remember she always smelled so good to me and as a teenager I bought the same perfume she always wore, White Shoulders. I love you Aunt Pat and I hope you and Uncle Wayne are having fun??
