Carol Ann Turner
April 3, 1959 – November 4, 2018
Mrs. Carol Ann Turner, age 59, was called home to be with our Lord on Sunday November 4th 2018.
Carol was born on April 3rd, 1959 to her loving parents, Rocco Sr. and Norma Ruggiano in Providence, RI. She graduated from Johnston Rhode Island High School, eventually making a career in the hospitality industry. Carol was a loving and wonderful wife & mother, she was very outgoing and fun loving. Carol was a very self-assured woman with a strong will, and found success in everything she did.
Carol’s love and devotion for her daughter Stephanie was always the single most important part of her life. Stephanie’s many accomplishments, always celebrated with family and friends, provided the greatest joy and happiness for Carol. More than anything else, when Stephanie graduated from college, Carol’s feet didn’t touch the ground all day, a most proud mother.
Carol spent countless time planning for Stephanie’s wedding, making all the arrangements and working out every detail so Stephanie’s wedding day would be perfect, and it was absolutely the most beautiful ceremony ever seen.
Holidays and family vacations were also special times for Carol, with trips to Mesa, Arizona, Las Vegas, Nevada, Puerto Rico, Washington DC, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, New York City, Disneyworld and the Daytona 500, just to name a few. Always about spending time and sharing all this with her family.
Carol grew up in Johnston, Rhode Island and as a young woman she moved to Melbourne, Florida and was married to Phillip Taldone in the summer of 1983. She gave birth to her daughter Stephanie, November 8th, 1983 and later relocated to Jacksonville, Florida.
Carol married Thomas Turner on Valentine’s day of 2003. She gave her last full measure of devotion, where she made a beautiful home for her husband, supporting him in all he did, and loving him more than any man could imagine. We love you Carol.
Carol is survived by her husband, Thomas Turner; her daughter Stephanie Franco and husband Arthur; her former husband Phillip Taldone; her father in law, Roger Turner; her sister, Cheryl Ruggiano and children, Rocky and Brieana Melvin; her sister in law & brother in law, Tammy & Rick Walsh, and their children, Bennett, Andrew and Lexi Walsh.
She is preceded in rest by her parents Rocco Sr. and Norma Ruggiano; her brother Rocco Jr.; her mother in law Barbara Turner; & former father and mother in law, Phillip and Louise Taldone. Words cannot express her love for her family and friends. Carol had her own way of doing things, and it was always from the heart. She wasn’t afraid of letting you know how she felt, but was very sincere in all that she did. We miss you very much.

Our time on earth is relatively pretty short, for tomorrow is promised to no one. But, we all lose site of this, until times like these, remind us all, just how fragile life really is. Carol, was a special, special woman to all of us in many different ways. A most loving and caring mother, wife, sister, and friend, always supporting all of us in every thing we did. Carol, took great pride in providing for her family. As much as she could possibly do, as often as she could possibly do it. She, set an example for me to follow, and would remind me often, how I should treat others. Today, and in the days to come our sorrow will be hard for us to bear, for we will miss her many times, in many different ways. But, we must hold on to our faith, and find comfort in the fact, that we will be reunited one day with Carol, and all our other loved ones in heaven. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that who so ever believes in him, shall never perish, but have eternal life, for God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him. Our salvation is in Christ Jesus, who went to the cross, of his own free will, died for us, and was raised to life, so we too could be raised to life through him. Jesus tells us, do not let your hearts be troubled, trust in God, and trust also in me. In my father's house are many rooms, if it were not so I would have told you. I'm going there to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me, that where I am, you may be there also. We will always love you and miss you very, very, much each and every day and we will always cherish our many memories of you the rest of our lives, and how much you loved and cared for all of us. You made my life complete. I love you Carol, and she would always respond "I love you more" Now, we know that you are patiently waiting for all of us, until we can all be together again one day.
