On the morning of September 30, 2022, Helen R. Turner, 84, of Citra, Florida peacefully transitioned to be with the Almighty Father.

Conceived in love by Wallace Brown and Georgia Tuggerson in 1938, Helen loved attending school, gardening and spending time with her siblings and cousins, all whom she loved very much.

As she moved into adulthood, she spent the first part of her career working as a seamstress at Lady Bayard. The latter part of her career was spent working for Quality Banner, a position from which she retired.

Although she began her spiritual journey as a child, her love for the Lord blossomed in the choir at Willow Plant Missionary Baptist Church. Her desire to spread God’s love to others grew, as the Holy Spirit chose her path as an Evangelist. She honed those skills while attending church at Holy Spirit Tabernacle of God, which led her to becoming the Assistant Pastor at Church of God by Faith, Righteousness and True Holiness. When Helen wasn’t witnessing to those around her, she could be found listening to the gospel, reading the scriptures, or checking in on loved ones by phone.

Proceeded in death by her parents Wallace and Georgia, her husband Willie Mack Turner Sr., her daughter, Vivian McNair and her daughter-in-law Gail Turner, Helen is survived by Parry (Tyronne Hamilton) of Citra, FL; Apostle Willie Mack Turner (Willie Mae); Willie Lawerence Turner of Citra, FL; and Titious Turner (Diane) of Brandon FL. This Matriarch created, supported and taught 5 generations which includes a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins.
