Mrs. Turner, who retired September 2016, served the Adventist Church for close to 40 years. Most of those years were spent at the Campbell’s Castle Preparatory School.

“The children are not taking it so well”, said Mrs. Cecile Forbes, current principal of CCP. “We heard the news while attending church on Sabbath. And though school was not in session, the word went out. Some children turned up at the school asking if it’s true. It’s really sad”, she continued.

Mrs. Turner spent most of her time at CCP, but she also served at the West Indies College Preparatory School for some time.

She died leaving her husband Clarence and Children Jason, Nigel, Jamie, Raj, and Avery-Ann.

The Thanksgiving Service is being planned for Sunday, January 21, 2018 at the Campbell's Castle Seventh-day Adventist Church, Manchester, Jamaica.
