Obituary

Carolyn L. Turner, age 76, of Powder Springs, Georgia passed away on April 10, 2022 at home surrounded by family. 

Mrs. Turner was born on September 4, 1945 in Atlanta, Georgia.

She is survived by her husband: Michael Turner, children: John Canning, James Canning, Chris Barnes, and Cherie Lawley, sisters: Patricia Manly , and Mari Carpenter, aunt: Laura Mulkey and grandchildren: Jack, John, Danielle, Ruthy, Brianna, Matthew, Austin, Jordan, and Gage as well as several cousins and great grandchildren.

Mrs. Turner was most of all a giver.  You couldn't visit her and not go home with a box full of gifts or food.  She loved to crochet, and up until her hands couldn't crochet any more, she'd take a clear bag of her hand made goodies to all doctor appointments for everyone to see.  The staff would be given all that she had made, and she'd take requests for the next appointment. Giving brought her so much joy.

Carolyn was an exceptional woman and mother.  Playful, quick witted, and a quirky sense of humor would describe her.  Full of grit, she defined strength and courage.  As a single mother of four, she worked several jobs all at once to provide during her earliest years until she obtained a job as an airframe mechanic at Lockheed Martin.  Over the years, she worked her way up, even attending school for a promotion to MRB, scoring top of her class, all while managing a home and always finding time to also be Team Mom. She persevered through many challenges as a female in a mostly male work environment  which was quite a feat in that time period. After twenty eight years, and single handedly changing the future for the two children still at home, she retired.

Music, singing, and performing on stage was a lifelong passion for Carolyn, and she even had the opportunity to sing back up, as well as open a show for a few well known country music stars.  

Carolyn met the love of her life, Michael Turner, in retirement, and the years they had together were the happiest in their lives.  She enjoyed her beloved hobbies of music, crocheting, and gardening, and thrifting into retirement, but the greatest joy of all, was just being Nana to her grandchildren.

The family is planning a Celebration of Life for spring 2022.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests you make a donation in Carolyn's name to the Michael J. Fox Foundation online at michaeljfox.org.  Carolyn fought a long and relentless battle with Parkinson's disease, and she tried to help everyone she could who had a new diagnosis.  

Anyone who would like to send a gift other than a donation, can send something to plant in her garden she admired and called, "paradise".
