December 24, 1936 - November 29, 2020
Lois Eileen Turner was born on December 24, 1936 in Gladesville, West Virginia and died on November 29, 2020 in Columbus, Ohio at the age of 83 years old. Lois is predeceased by her parents, Martha and George Turner; sister, Carolyn and two very special friends and roommates, Olivia and Vicky. Lois is survived by her brother Daryle (Shelby) Turner; loving Aunt Esther as well as many nieces and nephews. One very special niece Cathy Mitchell. Lois, who was known by her friends as Eileen, was most proud of her upbringing in the hills of West Virginia. Her family would describe Eileen as the most hard-working lady as well as the most stubborn. She was very tenacious and wanted to do everything for herself. In August of 2001, Lois became a part of Bridges to Independence where the staff was honored to be a part of her family and they learned so much from Lois as they helped her throughout the rest of her life. She has left her mark on so many people's hearts over the last 20 years. She was Amazing at all she attempted to do. She could crochet anything she would dream up. She did not read it from a book but rather created it in her mind and was able to bring it to life with her crochet hooks. Once she had these items completed, she would then give them away to brighten the days of those around her. She loved flowers and was known to dig up several neighbor's yards and plant beautiful flowers whether they wanted them or not. She just wanted to brighten their lives. Eileen would sit for hours listening to her West Virginia music and crocheting the most amazing afghans and many, many other items. All from memory. She was also such a hard worker. She worked many years at Goodwill where she loved her work and making her paycheck. She would pack her lunch bucket everyday eager to go to work and make money. In the end Lois Eileen Turner touched the lives of so many people. She has taught us all so many life lessons that we will forever cherish. She was a beautiful, amazing lady that will be truly missed, but we know she lived a very happy fulfilled life and will be leaving this "danged ole buckeye state" as she would have said. She will rest in peace in the beautiful hills of West Virginia as she always wanted. Thank you, Eileen for all the wonderful laughs and memories you have blessed us all with. You have etched a place in so many hearts. There will be a visitation on Monday, December 7, 2020 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at Schoedinger Funeral and Cremation Service, 6699 North High Street, Worthington, Ohio 43085.
