Her Life

Doris Ladean Chandler Turner passed away peacefully with her family on December 24, 2014 at her residence. She was born to the late Roy & Ruby Chandler on April 21, 1931.

She had previously worked for West Point Pepperell’s Langdale Mill and the Racetrac Service Station. She was a very kind, loving, and devout Christian lady. She was a prayer warrior and prayed for her family daily. She loved the Lord with all her heart, as well as her family and “Tonka” , her Yorkie. She was dearly loved by her surviving husband of 33 years, Earnest “Jack” Turner. She was a wonderful care giver and provided support for him until her health would no longer allow.

“Dot” as she was know by most, was a virtuous and giving lady of faith. She was a beautiful woman and always a classy dresser that matched from head to toe. She loved Southern Gospel music, and all of her many children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She loved growing beautiful flowers and was known for some of the finest home cooked recipes and sweet tea. Great is the void that she leaves in this world, but her memories and the impact on the people she loved will live on exponentially. Her favorite places of worship were Evangel Temple and The Bridge Church.
