In memory of Kari Taylor, Addison parent

Monday, August 15, 2016 - 7:48pm

Dear Addison parents and community, I am writing to share the very sad news that Kari Taylor, an Addison parent, passed away last week after a battle with cancer.

Kari leaves behind a daughter entering 4th grade and a son entering kindergarten, as well as her husband and two older children.  This is an overwhelming and extremely difficult time for Kari's family, and I know that the Addison community will join together to help in any way possible.

There are two immediate ways you can help the Taylor family:

1. The family would greatly appreciate help with dinners.  A very user-friendly meal system has been set up at - simply follow the instructions on this site and sign up to bring a dinner to the Taylor family.

2. A fund has been set up at to help ease the financial stress on the family during this time.

Kari's memorial service will be this Friday at 1 pm at Alta Mesa, which is located at 695 Arastradero Rd, Palo Alto, CA 94306.

Addison is an extremely generous and supportive community; let's do all that we can to help Kari's family during this difficult time.

Please contact Jamie Merkel ( or Jessica Lee ( of Helping Hands with any questions.
