Obituary of Jeanette Marie Turner
December 22, 1948 – Oxford, Nova Scotia
November 11, 2023 – Calgary, Alberta
Jeanette Marie Turner (nee Fahey), daughter of the late Vaughn and Freda Fahey, and beloved wife of David Turner, of Calgary, AB, passed away on Saturday, November 11, 2023, at the age of 74 years, with her family holding on to her.
After more than twenty-five years of working in the healthcare field, she happily retired and spent her days relaxing in her backyard, making shopping trips to Marshalls, walking her dogs, and most recently, spending time with her great grand babies.
She was a wonderful woman who was passionate about loving people more than herself, creating an atmosphere that felt welcoming in her presence, and selflessly giving to whomever needed it. She will be dearly missed for her kind heart, beautiful smile, and sarcastic, witty personality.
Jeanette leaves behind her husband David Turner, brother Alan Fahey, children, Sue Leblanc (Tom), Tim Boutilier (Cristina), and Sheana MacDonald (Chris); grandchildren, Chad Turner, Daniel Leblanc, Jenna Culbertson (Jeff), Delaney Lawrence (Zach), Mia Boutilier, Jaymee Seebach (Rick), and Tyler Harris; and great-grandchildren, Aria, Theodore, and another on the way. She also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers-in-law, and sisters-in-law, and many friends who she loved immensely.
At the request of Jeanette, there will be no funeral held.
