Our precious loving daughter, sister, aunt and mother, Sherri, departed this world for Heaven on July 1, 2012. Sherri was born to Earl and Evelyn Turner on Oct. 23, 1964 in Boulder City, Nev. Not long after birth, Sherri and her family moved to the Fresno, Calif., area where she resided until 1995. Following high school, Sherri earned her Licensed Vocational Nursing degree, something she was so very proud of, and worked as an LVN in Fresno until 1995. 

In 1995, Sherri along with much of her family moved to Klamath, her final place of residence, and a place she considered paradise. Once in Klamath, Sherri worked for many years at the UIHS clinic, a job that enabled her to help people, something she loved so much. 



Although she was very proud of her career and loving family, her proudest accomplishment came in 2001 with the birth of her pride and joy Joshua. Sherri loved her job working in the medical field, being a mother, her dogs, and reading about home makeover projects — although she completed very few of them. She loved living on the North Coast, and put her family and son first in her life. Sherri was full of life, and lived her short time here to the fullest.

Sherri was preceded in death by her father Earl, brother Randy, and twin sister Terri. Sherri is survived by her mother Evelyn, brothers Ron and David, and sister Lorri, all of Klamath; son Joshua and brother David of Crescent City; sister Glenda of Fresno, and many nieces and nephews. Sherri was such a loved and important part of her family, and her loss is devastating and she will never be replaced or forgotten. She was such a kind, loving and generous person, and would help anyone in need if she could. Although we are devastated at losing Sherri, we understand God has a better plan for her, and He must have needed her more than we did. She is now reunited with her family in Heaven, with Jesus, and at peace. 

The world lost a wonderful person, but Heaven gained an amazing angel. We love you Sherri. A celebration of Sherri’s life will be held at Redwood Family Worship Center in Crescent City at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 11, 2012.
