For many years, I've heard stories of kindnesses and expressions of caring that show Judy McCord Turner's abiding family love. My source is my Aunt Arlene and Uncle Gene--storytellers about Judy's visits, phone calls and running errands. Helping her mother-in-law and her father-in-law didn't happen just once in awhile. Judy was there for the Turners day after day, month after month, and year after year. Very often, she brought the "youngens" Reed and Chelsea to visit their grandparents. Close bonds between the generations were obvious and eventually included great grandchildren. May these words voice the deeply felt respect and love for Judy that Arlene and Gene Turner told me about many, ma...ny times. Though a geographically distant "cousin-in-law," I know about their extraordinary regard for their daughter-in-law, Judy McCord Turner. It was very obvious they admired Judy as she raised their grandchildren with integrity. Through many stories, I came to believe that she loved her family without reservation.Read more

Only knew Judy for a short while but felt she was in my life always. Always a bright smile and offered her hugs unconditionally. She was a blessing to all that met & knew her. Praying God be with her loved ones through this grieving time. RIH Judy
