Edith Turner, 92, of Livonia passed away peacefully on September 10th. Her last days were spent next to the big picture window overlooking the river and park behind her home. Family, friends and caregivers surrounded her as her loving husband Fred held her hand and her youngest great-grandchildren played on the floor nearby. It was beautiful and sad all at once.
Born in Illinois in 1929, she grew up in Wisconsin where she roamed the fields on horseback. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin and received job offers from Michigan and California. Ultimately she chose Detroit, where she met her husband Fred and together they built his law practice. She had many wonderful friends and enjoyed taking classes, golfing, playing bridge and spending summer vacations with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also volunteered for many years at Meals on Wheels.
Besides her husband Fred, she is survived by her children Viki (Michael), Fred (Karen), Jim and Wendy; her grandchildren Andy (Erin), Chris (Laura), Catherine (Mark), Theresa, Angela, Sam, and Nate; along with eight great-grandchildren. Her brothers Ron (Connie) Tillmann and Albert (Rosie) Tillmann also survive her. Her beloved daughter Chrissy preceded her in death.
At her request, there will be no services.
