Sarah's Story

Text size

Sarah C. Turner, 79, wife of the late, John L. Turner, died on July 11, 2016, at Mayo Regional Hospital, Dover-Foxcroft. She was born March 17, 1937, in Scotland, the daughter of Donald and Sarah E. (Parkin) Spalding.

Chris came to the United States as a British nanny and enjoyed taking care of the many children in her charge. Time never took away Chris's love for her husband, John, who passed away in 1982. Although she only had two of her own children, she had a large extended family including many who looked at her as a second mother. Chris will always be remembered as a good ear for listening without judgment. She enjoyed reading and being outdoors in the sunshine.

She is survived by her two children, Ian Turner and his wife, Sharon, and Beth Campbell; nine grandchildren, Mandy Turner, Lexi Turner-Bragan, Leonard Soto, John Bodhi Turner, Emily Turner, Eli Campbell, Darcy Campbell, Tristan Turner, and Ava Turner; and her best friend since age 5 in Scotland, Elspeth Webster. She was predeceased by her brother, Donald Spalding and his wife, Shuna.

Graveside services will be private for family. A celebration of her life will be announced at a later date. Burial will be in the family lot in Sebec Corner Cemetery. Arrangements are in the care of the Lary Funeral Home, Dover-Foxcroft. Messages of condolence may be expressed at www.laryfuneralhome.com.
