Laura L. Turner, our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away May 7th at The Hospice House of Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice. Born September 10, 1927 to Bernard and Alice Lowell, Laura was a unique and caring individual who touched the lives of many. She married her soul mate, Norman S. Turner on March 6, 1946 and together they raised two loving sons. Laura was devoted to her family . A favorite spot was Pleasant Pond in Turner where she enjoyed many celebrations and cruising the shoreline.

Laura's hobbies included attending card classes with her friends from the Esplanade, shopping, dining out and texting her family - a recent addition to her methods of communication! She was a Sunday School teacher and lifelong parishioner at Court Street Baptist Church.
