<div itemprop="description">Turner (nee Kerr), Mrs. Mary Elizabeth <br>It is with sadness that our family announces the passing of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Mary Turner on January 3, 2017 at the age of 96. Mary had lived all of her life in Halton and Peel Counties and was an active participant in the life of Brampton and area communities. She attended Brampton District High School, and lived and worked in the Norval area prior to her marriage to Lawrence in March of 1942. Mary worked at the Eaton’s order office in Brampton, Burtons Butcher Shop, Brampton and the Gateway Restaurant in Snelgrove then on to a 25 year career as a school bus driver for Harold Cook in Snelgrove. She was a Life Member and Past Matron of Orchid Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star in Brampton, past President of Campbell’s Cross Women’s Institute, past president of Club 106 Seniors in Brampton and a long-time member of Snelgrove and Flower City Seniors Clubs. Mary loved to play euchre and seldom turned down a few hands, which she invariably won and was always very proud when she came in first at various card parties. A long time member of St. James the Apostle Anglican Church in Brampton she played an active role in the life of the church. For many years, Lawrence and Mary spent summer weekends at their cottage at Williams Lake near Owen Sound, a place that was close to her heart. Mary lived a long and full life, she was especially proud of her memory for people, dates and events that had occurred throughout her lifetime in the Brampton and Norval area. She was the last surviving and youngest daughter of the late Richard and Elizabeth Kerr of Norval, and was predeceased by her sister Edna and brothers Irwin and Aubrey. Mary was predeceased by Lawrence in 1977, and their son, Wayne in 1958. She is survived by her daughter Sandra (Ballum) of Red Deer, Alberta, grand-daughters Heather of Kelowna, B.C. and Janis Makofka (Wes) of Red Deer, Alberta and great grandchildren Jessica, Tyler Makofka of Red Deer, Alberta, as well as her niece Donna Lewis of Oshawa. The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Victorian Order of Nurses in Grace Court Brampton for the excellent and compassionate care and friendship given to Mary in the past years. The nurses were not only her caregivers, they were her valued friends. Arrangements have been entrusted to Scott Funeral Home – Brampton Chapel 289 Main Street North (905-451-1100).
