Julia Turner

Julia Ann Turner, 82, of rural Upper Sandusky, went home to be with Jesus at 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 6, at her residence, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born Dec. 21, 1937, in Breathitt County, Kentucky, to Robert and Rachel (Coomer) McIntosh.
Julia worked at Budd company in Carey for over 20 years. She was a part of the UAW and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her retiree group. She also served with her husband in the various ministerial positions he held over the years, including 20 years at Lighthouse Pentecostal Church of God in Carey, and 14 years as bishop of Ohio District Pentecostal Church of God.
She was a faithful, devoted wife to her hillbilly firecracker, Bill, for 63 years. Their marriage has served as a true example of love and honor down through the years. She was a joy to be around and always put God first. She loved helping people and never turned down a good deal. She loved supporting her family in everything they did. She was one of a kind and reminded people it was okay to be ornery every now and then. She enjoyed pulling pranks on people.
She was preceded in death by her two boys, Bobby and Charlie Turner; a reunion in Heaven she looked forward to. In addition to her boys, she was preceded in death by her parents and siblings Robert McIntosh, Ida Hyde, Vicie Johnson, Martha Coomer, Norma Osborne and Burchel McIntosh.
She is survived by her loving husband, the Rev. Billy C. Turner; two precious daughters-in-law, Karen (Bobby) Turner and Marie (Charlie) Turner; six grandchildren, Joe (Alisha) Turner, Michelle (Hopefully Roy) Turner, Rachel Turner, Nick (Natasha) Turner, David (Anne) Turner and Elizabeth Turner; nine great-grandchildren; two sisters, Nannie Hendricks and Joyce-Kay (Rank) Saylor; many nieces and nephews; and many special friends.
Family will receive friends Sunday, May 10, from 2-6 p.m. at Lighthouse Pentecostal Church of God, Carey, and one hour prior to the service on Monday. The funeral service will be held Monday, May 11, at 11 a.m. at Lighthouse Pentecostal Church of God, Carey, with her grandson, the Rev. Joe Turner officiating. Burial will follow at Spring Grove Cemetery in Carey. Note: Social distancing protocol will be observed at all times of visitation, service and burial. The family is asking visitors to bring their own personal protective equipment if they feel they need it.
