Miami Springs Pioneer, Mary Ann Goodlett Taylor, Passes Away

We are saddened to report the passing of Miami Springs Pioneer and Historian Emeritus, Mary Ann Goodlett Taylor.  Nobody in Miami Springs has ever loved our community as much as Mary Ann.

She was always sweet and full of love for our beautiful Miami Springs.  Mary Ann loved to share stories of the early development of Miami Springs.  From the horses, coconut palm groves, and stories of the wildlife roaming free, she always had time to share her stories.  And she adored talking about Glenn Curtiss and the many incredible accomplishments by our City Founder.  

Miami Springs has lost more than a pioneer.  Miami Springs has lost a cherished treasure and loving soul.  God bless you Mary Ann.  We will miss you greatly.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family during this difficult time.
