Peacefully on May 2, 2019, Betty Anne Turner, 72, passed away surrounded by family.
She will be forever missed by daughter Tracy (Terry), grandchildren, Matthew and Leah, son Rhett (Coreena), grandchildren, Jordyn, Tyler and Christopher (their mother Kathy): sisters, Trudy (Jim) and Donna (Brian); sister-in-law Sharon, brothers-in-law, Ron (Shirley) and Brett (Therese) and her many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by husband Bob in 2011; parents, Jim and Helen, parents-in-law, John and Thelma, brother Gord and her nephew Randy.
Growing up in Boissevain, she learned to crochet, knit and sew in 4-H. Educated at teachers' college, she spent a few years as a kindergarten teacher but then chose to stay home with her kids and took on the role caring for half of Charleswood in her home daycare.
Sweet Adelines was a passion of BA's, remaining a member for 25 years.
Her biggest joy was watching her grandchildren in their many activities whether it be on a soccer pitch, gymnasium, ball diamond, hockey rink or at a recital.
She would like to thank the medical professionals encountered while dealing with Cortico-Basal Syndrome as well the Portsmouth Residence staff members and table 22 for all their support. Special thanks to Vanessa for her caring ways. While the decision to utilize MAID was not an easy one, we are thankful for the service they provide.
A Celebration of Life will held on Saturday, May 11 at the Assiniboia Downs on the main floor from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. A short, informal service will take place at 1:00 p.m. and the rest of the time will be for visiting and remembrances.
In lieu of flowers, if you choose, please make a donation to the Boissevain & Morton Foundation.
