Taylor Renee’ Hyter

April 15, 2001- March 17, 2019


It was Easter Sunday in 2001 when Troy and Denise were anticipating a new baby boy into their already growing family of two daughters They even had a name picked out, but much to everyone’s surprise it was a girl.  In naming their new daughter,  they floated a few options out on their new bundle of joy and the baby girl responded to one name with laughter and smiles, Taylor Renee’ Hyter.


As a young child, Taylor enjoyed spending time with her two older sisters, Sakyra and Alaya and many other family members and friends.  Even though she was the smallest in the house,  she was the bossiest and most outspoken, distributing advice to all those who where within ear shot.  Little Ms. Taylor was well known among her mothers clients in the beauty shop, dispensing styling and life advise well beyond her years.  With many talents signing wasn’t one of them, but you couldn’t tell her otherwise.


Academically,  Taylor excelled in  math and science, graduating from Crooked Creek  Elementary School before moving to Chandler, Arizona.  Her  inquisitive and colorful nature made her unforgettable among her peers and teachers.   In high school she continued to excel academically and in track and field receiving numerous awards and other recognition.   Upon her graduation in May from Corona Del Sol High School in Tempe, a very determined Taylor planned on following  her mothers footsteps in the beauty industry, creating her own line of Mink Eyelashes.


As everyone’s counselor, friendships where her lifeline, her enthusiasm for life was insatiable and so filled with joy that is was contagious and embraced everyone she met.  Travel was her pastime visiting Hawaii, Puerto Rico, San Diego and Florida- the beach was her place of peace.


Ms. Taylor Renee Hyter, passed away on Sunday, March 17th at Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Arizona   leaving  behind her beloved parents:  Troy Hyter, Denise & Andrew Strom, sisters: Sakyra and Alaya Hyter,  nephew: Logan Hyter, niece: Emery Hatchett,  grand mother  Nancy Peterson, Elisa and Cynthia Hyter and a host of cherished aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.



Proceeding her in death is her grandfather Clifton Peterson and aunt April Pryuer.  In her last selfless act Taylor donated her organs, saving 3 lives.

  1. I am so sorry to hear of the death of Taylor. The passing away of a loved one is always with much sorrow. May we have faith and confidence in the Bible’s promise of a time when pain, sickness and death are a thing of the past (Revelation 21:3, 4). My condolences are with the family at this difficult time.
