If “living life to the fullest” was a person, Catherine Turner would be her name. Catherine Turner was a vibrant queen who believed in having fun. She was an innovator who dressed to impress and knew how to turn any situation into a celebration. There will never be another Cat!
Catherine Willis Turner, the daughter of Mr. M.C. Willis and the late Mrs. Mary Lee Grant Kirkland, was born August 7, 1951. She joined Hines Chapel A.M.E. Church at an early age. She actively served under Rev. L.C. Green and Rev. Johnny C. Saffold and remained a member until her death. She accepted Jesus as her personal Savior.
She attended primary and intermediate schools in Dothan and graduated from Dothan High School in 1970. She briefly worked at Plantation Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, then transferred to Imperial Point Hospital, where she later retired. She loved children and believed in giving her time, talents, and treasures to others. She was a seafood-loving, life-of-the party, no sugar-coating comedian who will truly be missed.
