George Henry Turner

1911 – 2004


George Henry Turner passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of March 10, 2004 at the Tabor Home in Morden, aged 92. George will be lovingly remembered by Elsie, his wife of 58 years, daughters Deborah Turner and Rilla Curtis (David) and grandsons Tristan & Travis Curtis. George is also survived by his brother Ted, sisters-in-law Edith Turner and Helen Turner and numerous nieces and nephews. George was predeceased by three sisters and three brothers.

George was born April 27, 1911 in Minto, MB. His family moved to Morden in 1928 where his father founded Turner’s Bakery. After working as a cook and a baker in the mining industry in Ontario in the 1930s, George returned to Morden in the early 1940s to take over the family business. After retiring from baking in 1971, George worked for the Morden Cannery.

George served as a volunteer fireman for the Town of Morden and was a founding member of the Morden Kinsmen Club and the Morden Friendship Centre. An avid hockey player and golfer in his youth, in later years George enjoyed curling, traveling, tending his garden and playing pool at the Morden Friendship Centre.

The family wishes to thank the home care workers whose kind attentions enabled George to live at home for as long as possible and the staff of the Tabor Home for their compassionate care over  the last months.

Cremation has taken place. Following George’s wishes, there was no funeral. A gathering for friends was held on Monday, April 5, 2004 at 2:00 pm at the Morden Friendship Centre with interment at Hillside Cemetery, Morden, MB.

If friends so desire, donations may be made in George’s memory to a charity of their choosing.

George was a kind, gentle soul whose memory will always live in our hearts.
