Obituary Condolences

TURNER, Caroline "Carrie"
Caroline Turner passed away on January 27, 2013, after a brief illness, at the age of 86. Carrie was born on August 27, 1926, the youngest daughter of Albert Hitriz and Katherine Krieger, who ran a dairy farm in Moodus, CT. She married Clifford Basil Turner of East Hampton, in 1950, and moved to East Hampton where she remained for the rest of her life. Carrie was an avid duckpin bowler in the 1950's and won several regional championships. She raised two sons, got her Bachelors of Education degree in 1964 from Eastern Connecticut State University, worked as a Teacher's Aid for Special Education in the East Hampton Public School System, as the Secretary of the East Hampton Congregational Church, and as an Office Manager at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft. She was active in the Congregational Church as well as the Public Library and Senior Center in East Hampton. Carrie's beloved husband passed away in 1996, but she is survived by her two sons, Richard of Nashua, NH and Boston, MA, and Philip of East Hampton, as well as several grandchildren. Although she outlived all her immediate relatives and many of her friends, her remaining family and friends, and all who knew her, will miss her sharp intellect, sense of humor, and zest for life.
