6B Sun-Sentinel, Saturday, June 3, 1989 OBITUARIES Janet Taylor, first BCC employee J. Pikul, analyst who murdered wife lors moved to Fort Lauderdale, Mrs. Taylor went back to work as a secretary, this time for the Broward County School Board. When BCC was created under the auspices of the School Board control was transferred to the state in 1968 Mrs. Taylor decided to switch jobs.

She retired in April 1988 after serving as a secretary for five BCC presidents, her husband said. Also surviving are a son, Thomas T. of Arlington, a daughter, Nancy McGaha of Black Mountain, N.C.; and a sister, Charlotte Wallace of Fort Lauderdale. Services will be at 7 p.m. on Monday at the Jennings Funeral Home in Fort Lauderdale.

The family asks that donations be made to the Abiding Savior Lutheran Church Memorial Fund in Mrs. Taylor's name. "When we first started out, it was a very small, family-type organization," "Jan" Taylor said in a 1985 interview. "There were a lot of social activities such as teas and things that you seldom hear about anymore." 1 In the interview, Mrs. Taylor, who retired as executive secretary 28 years later, recalled the early years at BCC: "You name it, and I did it.

I did everything, including making coffee and preparing the payroll." The first college was housed temporarily in crude, wooden barracks at the old Naval Air Station near the site of today's Fort Laui'e iale-Hollywood International Airport. Twenty staff member'' worked there until the campus was tioved to Davie in 1963. The junior college has since grown to four, campuses. Mrs. Taylor was reared in her Mary Bain Pikul.

An autopsy was planned, but hospital officials did not know when it would be done. Neither hospital nor police would comment on the nature of Mr. Pikul's death. A jury convicted Mr. Pikul of murdering his second wife, Diane, 44, on Oct.

24, 1987. Mr. Pikul said he killed his wife when she attacked him with a knife after a quarrel over an unfamiliar brand of condoms he found under her bed. Prosecutors said her beating and strangulation were motivated by Mr. Pikul's fear of losing the couple's two children and by Diane Pikul's threats to blackmail him.
