Juanelle graduated from Floydada High School in 1944 & attended West Texas State College until she met the love of her life, B.C. Taylor. They married on May 2, 1945 & opened B.C. Taylor Service Station in 1947. Juanelle worked side-by-side with B.C. in the mom and pop service station for over 40 years, pumping gas, washing windshields and visiting with customers. The Taylors supported community organizations and helped many travelers who ran out of gas or money. Living in the family business provided a wonderful way to raise the Taylor’s two children, Larry & Lorraine.
Although most of Mrs. Taylor’s time was spent in the family business, she also enjoyed growing beautiful roses and making delicious meals and fabulous candy for family and friends. Mrs. Taylor was a member of the First Baptist Church in Canyon.

The family also wishes to thank the thousands of customers who passed through B.C. & Juanelle Taylor’s Service Station during the 40 plus years they were in business.
