July 14, 1927 — Feb. 15, 2011
Surrounded by her family, Imogene Viola Turner passed peacefully into eternity Feb. 15, 2011. Born Imogene Harvey in Grand Rapids, Minn., she came to California with her father and mother, Ernest and Viola Harvey, and her two older brothers, Russell and Dale. The young family settled in the small but welcoming town of El Dorado.
Imogene married Leslie G. Turner in 1947 and the two began an adventurous life of raising five children across North America and Europe, as Leslie followed his career in the U.S Air Force. The family eventually settled in the Sacramento area. The children, Barbara (Harry “Ed”) Snyder, Janet (Leroy) Cowan, Pamela (Anthony) Kern, Terry (Renee) Turner and Cynthia (Mervin) Hee, ultimately added 13 wonderful grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren to the family.
We mourn as we miss our Imogene. Services were held at Mount Vernon Memorial Park on Tuesday, Feb. 22, at 12:30 p.m., following a viewing on Monday, Feb. 21, between 4 and 7 p.m.
