Mary Rebecca Turner, age 88, of Lithia Springs went to be with her Lord Jesus on Thursday, March 16, 2023. She was born October 16, 1934 in Bowdon, GA. She is the daughter of the late Mr. Sylvester Tillman (S.T.) Chambers and the late Mrs. Cora Bell Holcomb Chambers.
Mrs. Turner enjoyed spending time with her family, reading, crocheting and most likely, if you stopped in, she would be “working a puzzle” on her card table. She was also an amazing cook.

In addition to her parents she is preceded in death by her loving husband Mr. Charles Hansford Turner, Sr.; brother, Jerry Chambers; sister, Patricia Chambers.

Hughes of Villa Rica; sons, Charles (Kim) Turner, Jr., Billy (Susan) Turner, Mark (Donna) Turner all of Douglasville; sisters, Bonnelle Hendrix of Carrollton, Sylvia Kocour of Alabama; seventeen grandchildren; eleven great grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank her caregiver Janice Moore, the 4th floor nurses at Tanner Carrollton, the sweet staff at Benton House of Douglasville and Candance and Taylor with Inspire Hospice.
