Lois Turnbeaugh

Wood River |

  Lois Joan “Jo” Turnbeaugh was born Aug. 6, 1930 on Meadow Springs Farm, Bethalto, Ill.

  On September 30, 2010 at 7:38 p.m., God and Jesus took your hands to be with them and Daddy.  You always said fall was your favorite season, and the winds of change came today as they lifted your soul into heaven.  Now you are smiling, healed, and forever pain free.  Dance, jitterbug, and whistle, as you love to do.

  You’re now with your loved ones, your husband, Edward E. Turnbeaugh and your mom and dad, Albert and Ada (Jinkinson) Turnbeaugh.  You’re with your brothers and sisters whom you have missed so much to laugh, share, and catch up.  Now together again are Verdan “Al” Seynhoven, Janet Harvatin, Shirley White, Donald and Karen Seynhoven.  May you smile with them again until we join you too.

  You are loved and cherished by your daughter Karen Elizabeth Turnbeaugh Carr.  I was so blessed to have you as my mom.  Also your son Gregory B. Carr, your special granddaughter Aimee E. Sechrest and her husband Dennis, your proud grandsons Andrew G.E. Carr, Christopher G. Carr and their wives Michelle and Leah, all of Wood River. 

  You are loved also as Maw Maw Great, Grandma Great, and Granny Great for your daily smiles and your sunshines.  They will love you great forever:  Hannah Joan Sechrest, Grace Elizabeth Sechrest, Aiden Jobe Carr and baby Emma Katherine Sechrest.

  You touched so many lives with your kindness and love:  those who were friends, those at your jobs at Owens-Illinois Glass, Owens-Illinois Mold Shop, Wood River Round House, and Wood River Journal.

  So today, Mom, I say as I have said so many times, I love you, I miss you, and our lives will never be the same.  We have you in our hearts and souls forever.  May your new life in Heaven be as wonderful and blessed as it can be.  Be with us now and forever as we are with you.

  Funeral services will be private, at her request. 

  All memorials may be given to the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, or the American Lung Association.
