Josephine W. Turner Obituary
JOSEPHINE W. TURNER (1929-2016) "Jo" was born in Denver, Colorado on April 28, 1929 and passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday, July 10, 2016, at the age of 87. Preceded in death by her husband, Clarence Vermilya, Jo was one of the kindest, most spirited members of our Riverside, CA community. A prolific community activist, long time teacher for the Riverside Unified School District, proud mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Jo will be remembered for her inspiring zest for life and willingness to give all she could. Widely respected in our community, Jo's contributions to AAUW, The League of Women Voters, and the Mission Inn Foundation, among others, cannot be overestimated. Those of us who knew her best will find peace in knowing that she lived her life to the fullest, committing herself to a kinder, more equitable world. With love and grace, she will be dearly missed. A reception and Celebration of Life will be held in the Fellowship Hall at Trinity Lutheran Church in Riverside (5969 Brockton Ave.) on Friday, July 22nd from 2-5 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her name to AAUW (American Association of University Women) with a memo line to Tech Trek, an educational program fostering education and career development for girls in the STEM subjects. Send c/o Erika Britton at 5700 Via Sotelo, Riverside, CA 92506.
