Mrs. Anne Turnipseed, age 89, of Powder Springs, passed away November 20, 2017. She was a 29 year member of First Baptist Church of Powder Springs and before that she was a 25 year member of Sharon Baptist Church in Smyrna. Anne's life work was caring for others. She loved in pure, honest, and tangible ways as evidenced by hundreds of cards and handwritten notes to her friends, countless meals for those who were sick, years of visits to lonely people, spontaneous words of encouragement at checkout counters and in restaurants, years of photographing church family newborn babies, volunteer work to help unknown people who needed clothes and food, fun times with the children in her Sunday School classes, and endless devotion to her family. Her sunny outlook, radiant smile and unwavering faith will live on in the lives of those she touched.

She is preceded in death by a son, Wayne Turnipseed.

Mrs. Turnipseed is survived by her husband of 68 years, James Turnipseed; children, Julia T. Johnson and her husband, Doc., Ken Turnipseed and his wife, Sherry; grandchildren, Jennifer Johnson, Kendall Turnipseed, Allison Turnipseed; nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held Friday Nov. 24 at 2 Pm in the chapel of Georgia Memorial Park Funeral Home with Rev. Mike Woods officiating. Interment will follow in Georgia Memorial Park Cemetery.

The family will receive friends between the hours of 12 Noon until 2 PM Friday at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, please give to a person who has a financial need.
