She was born on November 11, 1934, daughter of the late Uschiichi and Kame Fukuchi.

Her pasttime activities in her younger years included weight training and personal fitness programs with her husband. Other interests included pool, bowling, and crocheting.

Above all, she treasured moments spent with those she held most dear. She was the matriarch and glue of the Turner family; a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
