Mrs. Turner "Nanny" was a bright light in this sometimes dark world. She was such a wonderful and loving mother to Aunt Judy and a remarkable grandmother to my cousins, Shane and Shannon. Nanny even treated me as her own when we were all young and would play at her house after school sometimes. Even years later, she never skipped a beat asking how me and my loved ones were doing. She was a true christian and a beautiful soul through and through. May Mrs. Turner forever be remembered with such light and such love. Godspeed Nanny! You are truly missed and loved by so many! God bless you and all your loved ones! I am truly blessed to have had you in part of my life.

Such a wonderful Christian lady will always be remembered by our family. She was always kind to us as teenagers and as young adults. I remember the beautiful smocked outfits and the day gowns she made my children when they were little and now they are grown. Our prayers are with you and your family. . Love The Dambach’s

My Aunt Kat (my grandfather's little sister), was a wonderful example of what a Christian should be. She was the epitome of faithfulness. I went by to see her at her care facility a couple of years ago when I was home. She was still reading on her kindle and when we were pushing her down the hallway she was directing us as to where to go. She has now made her final journey to her heavenly home. I will miss her.

I’m so saddened to hear of Sister Kathleen’s passing; however, I know she is rejoicing in heaven.

I think of her often as she taught me and my sister her love of sewing. I sew now for my granddaughter and always reminisce on those times. She holds a dear place in my heart and she was loved by my mother as well. Heaven added another angel. She will never be forgot.
