Geneva Robertson Turner
January 22, 1920 – June 9, 2018
Geneva Robertson Turner, age 98, of Gadsden, Alabama, peacefully went home to be in the arms of her Lord on Saturday June 9, 2018. She was born in Clay County. In her early twenties, she married J.C. Turner and entered the military life.
Having worked in several government jobs over the years, she settled in Gadsden in the early 60's and ended her career with the Anniston Army Depot.
Following retirement, she volunteered in the office of 12th Street Baptist Church, where she was a member for several years. She stayed busy by helping others in need.
Geneva's passions were serving others and writing poems and stories. She finally realized a life long dream and had a book published in her later years.
She is preceded in death by her husband, parents and six siblings. She is survived by her sister Idell Townsend, her two daughters Sharleen (Clay) Reeder and Brenda (Phillip) Vezertzis, six grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.

I took care of Mrs. Turner at Gadsen Health Care when she was on the 400 hall on station two. She always wanted me to meet her daughter but I work steady nights so I never did get to meet her family. Mrs. Turner was not only a friend, she became one of my favorite residents. She was such a joy to take care of. We would talk all the time at night when she couldn't sleep. I'll miss her, she was definitely one of a kind.
