Marjorie Jones Turner
1937 - 2010
Marjorie Jones Turner, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend passed away peacefully November 9, 2010 at her home in Magna, UT.
Born Jan 5, 1937 to Charles Elvin and Helen Clawson Jones in Salt Lake City Utah, and attended Granite High School in Murray, UT. Margie married her High School sweetheart and lifelong partner, Norman Edward Turner on February 11, 1955 in a ceremony at the "Jensen Home" in Salt Lake City. Margie and Norm lived in Jacksonville, FL, Bremerton, WA and San Juan, Puerto Rico during Norm’s tour of duty on board the aircraft carrier USS Franklin Roosevelt, then finally settling in Lompoc, CA where they lived for 31 years.
Marjorie had a gentle heart and loved her family. An avid reader, she also enjoyed camping, crocheting, tending to her rosebushes and was always adding to her collection of angel figurines. Movie musicals were one of her favorite forms of entertainment, a passion she shared with her children and their children. A wonderful cook, special occasions always found her preparing one of her signature baked Banana Cream pie, Pineapple Cheesecake or Chocolate Cake with homemade frosting.
A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Marjorie taught Primary school, and her loving nature led her to a calling as Compassionate leader in the church Relief Society.
Margie is survived by her husband of 56 years, Norman; their three children, Raymond (Karon) Turner of Spring Branch, TX, Ronald (Monika) Turner of Nixa, MO and Trudy (Bradley) Ellis of UT; brother, Steven Jones; and sister, Patrica Bond.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Stephen Lynn; brother, Robert Jones; and sisters, Geraldine Bond and Cherylyn Jones.
