Lois Turner Obituary

It is with great sadness we mourn the loss of our mother, Lois Dawn (Forsyth) Turner who passed suddenly and unexpectedly on Christmas Day. Predeceased by her parents Nellie & David Forsyth and her husband Brian Turner. Loved and cherished by her companion Dave Hunt, brother David (Ev) Forsyth and her children Kathleen Burke (Tony Tavares), Danielle Green (Roger) and step daughter Kim. Grandchildren Dana (Kevin), Anthony, Nathan (aka Mukwa), Melissa (Steve) Great Grandchildren: Brantley, Rylan, Corbin, Mason & Sebastien, GGGrandson: Axton.

After the early death of her father, Lois started working at age 14 to help support her family. She had a variety of adventures in employment until finding her best job as a bookkeeper at Upper Lakes Shipping in Toronto. Upon early retirement she and Brian settled in Elliot Lake where she immediately became active in the community: ELATE, Stage Door, hiking, snow shoeing, line dancing, clogging, bowling, cards, darts, slots, travel, DANCING, gardening and trying to play piano. She found her calling in acting and directing plays with ELATE and Stage Door Players. Her greatest passion was being a member of the church family of Grace Christian Centre where she volunteered for many years and was actively involved until the end of her life. She found God and her best self.

She will be missed by her daughters, nieces, nephews, family and many friends.

Donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society or Grace Christian Centre.

There will be a Celebration of Life on Saturday Dec 30 (11am) at Grace Centre followed by a luncheon. All welcome.
