Obituary for Theresa Juanita Turner

Theresa Juanita Turner affectionately known as “Tree” was born April 2, 1959 in Ambler, PA to Harry James Johnson and to the late Mary Edna Johnson. Theresa was the oldest child of seven children. Theresa met and fell in love with Pernell Turner, who she married and remained committed to for 42 years. From their union was born three beautiful daughters, Aishia Turner, Ruschell Turner and Lanell Turner.

Theresa attended Wissahickon High School. Theresa started working at an early age at “the park” in West Ambler where she would reflect on so many of her childhood memories. Theresa began her career as a Nursing Assistant (NA) at Silverstream Nursing Home. Theresa continued her nursing journey at Artman Liberty Lutheran Home becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) for 29 years where she was dedicated to helping others.

Theresa could always be counted on to start a party. She would dance to any song, anywhere. Theresa would request a mic at some point of night and sing her most memorable songs, including Teena Marie and James Brown. Theresa was the life of the party. Theresa enjoyed going to the casino with her husband. Theresa loved taking trips to the beach with her family and would always say, “I’m only getting my feet wet!”

Theresa was a devoted mother to her children and wife to her husband. Theresa provided the guidance to raise three strong and independent women. Theresa took extra care of her sister Harriet Anne who would often ride as passenger running numerous errands. She would do anything to protect her family.

Theresa passed into eternity to be with the Lord on July 20, 2019 at Einstein Montgomery Hospital. Her immediate family and extended family will surely miss the joy, kind, loving and caring personality that touched so many lives.

Theresa leaves to mourn her passing and will be lovingly remembered by her husband Pernell Turner, her children Aishia Turner, Ruschell Turner and Lanell Turner, three step-children Talisha Johnson, Tyenell Allen and Dyenell Rose, four sisters Mary Johnson, Cynthia Etheridge, Harriet Anne Johnson and La Tina Johnson, a very special cousin Belinda Stevenson, two brothers, Harry Johnson Jr. and John Johnson, eight grandchildren, one great grandchild, and a host of nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends are invited to her Viewing from 9-10 a.m. followed by the Funeral Service at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 3, 2019 at Zion Baptist Church, 14 North Street, Ambler, PA.
