TURNER, Emily Mary (nee Davies) Peacefully at home in Oakville on October 27, 2011 in her 94th year. Beloved wife of the late Robert R i d d e l l Tu r n e r, d e a r m o t h e r o f Lorna Heer and the late David Tu r n e r, a n d g r a n d m o t h e r o f Christopher Heer (Shauna Ellis). Mary was born on May 14, 1918 in Pembrokeshire, Wales, the eldest daughter of David and Amelia (Warry) Davies. In 1942 she set aside war work for marriage to a dashing Canadian army captain and motherhood. After coming to Canada in 1946, she made a home for her family in the Quebec mining community of Noranda before settling in Oakville. A great reader and conversationalist, Mary was well informed and never at a loss for words. She was an active member of the Oakville Opera Guild, Ontario Orchid Society, American Orchid Society and Oakville Golf Club for many years. Mary will be fondly remembered by family and friends both here and abroad. A memorial service will be held at St. Aidan's Anglican Church, 318 Queen Mary Drive, Oakville on Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Aidan's Anglican Church would be appreciated.
