On Tuesday, December 8, 2020, Jennifer Elaine Turner, devoted mother, sister and aunt, passed away at the age of 61.

Jennifer was a lively woman with many hobbies.

Her presence often commanded the attention in any room with her distinctive laughter, which she gave so freely. She was a lifetime student, collecting multiple degrees at various times in her life, and a natural born leader, always taking charge when the moment called for it. Regardless of what activity she was partaking in, she was often in the company of her family, creating countless unforgettable memories.

Jennifer was preceded in death by her father, Ervin; mother, Bessie; stepfather, George; and granddaughter, Olivia. She is survived by her daughters, Danielle and Marlene; stepdaughter, Tyra; adopted daughter, Tamara; siblings: Alice, Gerald and Thomas (Mendy); a host of grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.

  1. I treasure all of my interactions with Jennifer. She had an infectious smile and laugh and she always went out of her way to greet anyone she came in contact with. She will be greatly missed. Keeping her family in my prayers and thoughts.

  2. My friend, my sister in Christ always gave me the best hugs! She was my memory of our years together since 6th grade! How she love the Lord and would share his goodness wherever she went! I will truly miss the joy we shared and the heavy discussion that I think I won most of the time (smile)! She treasured her family and kept them close to her heart daily. Jenni I love you and I will miss our time together.
