In Memoriam: Professor Shirley Taylor
February 20, 2007
Queen's flags were at half mast to remember Shirley Taylor, associate professor and Distinguished Faculty Research Fellow in Marketing, who passed away February 13 after a two-year battle with cancer. She died peacefully at St. Mary's of the Lake Hospital in Kingston.
Professor Taylor taught market research at the School of Business for 17 years. Her own research has been published in numerous marketing journals including the acclaimed Journal of Marketing.
At Professor Taylor's request, there was no formal service. Memorial donations can be made to the University Hospital Kingston Foundation; Providence Continuing Care Centre; St. Mary's of the Lake Hospital, Palliative Care Unit; or the Kingston Humane Society.
Queen's School of Business is in the process of establishing a scholarship in Professor Taylor's name.
