We Remember

TURNER, Connie

Connie was born in Saskatchewan on June 11, 1953 and grew up in the town of Asquith. She moved to Kelowna in 1973 where she met her husband Gord. The two were married in 1977. Connie had three favourite men in her life: her husband Gord and her two sons Cody and Kyle. Connie also welcomed and loved her daughter-in-law Bretta, grandson Noah, and Kyle’s fiancée Carlee.  Also survived by two brothers Larry (Brenda) and Mark (Anne) all of Saskatoon; her mother Wilma, father Mick; mother-in-law Margaret and father-in-law Geordie.  There was never a more proud and loving wife, mother and grandmother than Connie. Her heart also reached out to the rest of her family, her uncountable number of friends, Mary Kay customers, and anyone else she could connect to. In the past year she renewed a passion for horseback riding which gave her great joy. Connie went to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus early Saturday morning. The one who had taught her to love and give and serve took her home to wait for the rest of us.  A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, June 30, at First Baptist Church, 1309 Bernard Avenue, Kelowna with Pastor Jack Borchert officiating.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Young Life Canada, #120 9440 – 202 Street, Langley, BC, V1M 4A6.

    Gord and Family, I am so sorry to hear of Connie’s passing. I met her back in the early 90’s when I started Mary Kay and she took me under her wing and trained me as we were both adoptees into the unit we were in. She always had a smile and a laugh and brightened everyone around her. As I sit here thinking back on our many career conferences and boot camps and just the monday nite meetings it brings a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. She will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

    To lose a younger cousin is a shock. I think back to childhood days in Asquith and am thankful for the small and loving community that was our home.

  • Audrey Frey says:

    I am saddened to hear of Connie’s passing last June. We were classmates and roommates back in the 70’s in Saskatoon. Connie has inspired me over the years with her laughter and cheerfulness. Her faith was strong and I know she is sitting on the right hand of God and enjoying eternal life.

    • LARRY says:

      Thankyou for the kind words Audrey – I remember you well.

      You can reply to this address if you want to chat more. Where are you living now?

      • Audrey Frey says:

        Hi Larry,
        I had checked back a couple of times to see if there was a response and I didn’t see one. I decided today to check back again today as I think about my memories with Connie. I remember you well too. I have been living in Banff now for about 30 years – wow! As I near 60yrs myself, I think about slowing down in the workforce and switching retirement gears. I enjoy travel quite a bit and the outdoors of the mountains bring me peace and contentment. The last time I saw Connie was Oct 2010 if I remember correctly and we had really good chat. She was recovering from her double mastectomy and was so positive about it. It was a shock to get Gord’s email on Jan 1st, responding to the Xmas card I had sent. I remember too your parents and tell them I am thinking about them. I hope all is well with you and your family. All the best,Audrey Frey
