Obituary for Sybol Holmes Taylor

Sybol Holmes Taylor passed away at her home in VA Beach on December 16, 2017. She lived most of her life in Saltville and moved to VA Beach in 1993 after the death of her husband Chester to be closer to her son Barry. Sybol loved her family and her family loved her. She was a fabulous cook and enjoyed being with family and friends. She was always there to help when a loved one was in need and never knew how to cook a small meal. She would always try to feed you more than you could possibly eat. She was preceded in death by her parents David and Alice Holmes, husband Chester Taylor, brothers Carson and Berley (Hack) Holmes.
She is survived by her son Barry Taylor and his wife Beth (VA Beach), grandchildren Luke Taylor, Jessica and husband Mike Walton, Eric and wife Bethany Dryfka, two great grandsons Josiah and Grayson Dryfka, a special nephew and niece who were like a son and daughter Jak and LeAnna Holmes (Rural Retreat), two great nephews Zak and Blake Holmes who were like grandsons to her, Cora Jones (Rural Retreat) who was her sister in law and best friend for many years, nephews Dale Holmes, Darrell Holmes, Randy Holmes and niece Sandy Holmes (Nashville) Donnie Allison of Meadowview, VA, and many other relatives that she loved. Sybol will be missed by many who considered her their rock and adoptive mom. Funeral services for Sybol Taylor will be conducted at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday December 20, 2017 in the D.R. Henderson Funeral Home with Rev. Jimmy Taylor officiating. The family will receive friends from 5 until 7 prior to the service. Graveside services will be conducted at 11:00 a.m. Thursday in the Mount Rose cemetery. Pallbearers will be Luke Taylor, Eric Dryfka, Mike Walton, Zak Holmes, Blake Holmes, Dale Holmes, Darrell Holmes, and Randy Holmes. Online condolences may be made at
