Margaret Hubbard Turner

December 10, 1929May 7, 2020

Ms. Margaret Hubbard Turner, age 90, born in Franklin County, Virginia, passed away peacefully at home, on Thursday, May 7, 2020. She lost a 38 year battle with cancer and is now, gone to be with our Lord. She was the matriarch of the family. A loving mother to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, Hubert Hubbard and Hattie Mattox; husband, Benjamin Lewis Turner.

She is survived by her children; Marshall Turner (Kathleen), Rose Turner, Dennis Turner, Felecia Longest (Paul); grandchildren, Allison Sweet, Lindsay Parks (Dustin), Justin Longest (Katherine), Kaitlin Longest, Benjamin Longest; siblings, George Hubbard (Lois), Bobby Hubbard (Opal), Billy Hubbard (Martha), Lee Hubbard, Jeanette Berthold (Terry), Jackie Hubbard (Gale); great grandchildren, Claire Sweet, Connor Sweet, Hadley Parks and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Margaret made a friend with everyone she met, sharing her smile and kind words. She grew up on a tobacco farm in Franklin County which introduced her to her love of gardening and flower arranging. She made many memories while boating and camping at Philpot and Smith Mountain Lakes. She was also affiliated with Smith Memorial Methodist Church.

She had a career working at Dupont in Martinsville, VA, where she was one of the first women to work in men only areas, pushing the glass ceiling for other women to follow. She lived her life to the fullest with a tenacious will to push forward.

She will leave behind a large empty space which will be quickly filled with the love she left behind. Many thanks to family and friends who have supported throughout the years. A family celebration honoring her life will be held at a later date.

Flowers are nice, however in lieu of flowers please donate to your local SPCA or Wake Forest Baptist Cancer Center. Online condolences may be made at www.collinsfuneralhomebassett.com

We were so sorry to learn of Mrs. Turner's passing. We live on Derbyshire Lane. Mrs. Turner loved her flowers. That's where I saw her most.

Her picture was beautiful...she was a beautiful person. She was a friend of my mother's who lived in Hillcrest Park. Mrs. Turner told me this when I visited her not long after she moved to Derbyshire Lane.

Please know that we will keep you in our prayers. We would have liked to visit or take food when she was sick but with the Covid 19 virus we didn't think that would be a good idea. We are sorry things have to be like to for now.

There are too many memories to just put one, I can remember her at the lake that she loved so much. She loved to ski and lay in the sun. I will miss you so much aunt Margaret. Love you always and forever. ❤
