ROBERTA LEE TURNER After a full, healthy and happy life filled with love, family and friends, Bo has finally said goodbye to us all. She is predeceased by her favourite dance partner Murray, and leaves behind a large and loving family. She will be remembered with pride and respect by her children, Doug Turner (Peggy Kirkpatrick) and children Gordon and Maggie (Keith Northey); Lee Magwood (Charles) and children Tim (Nancy), Trish (Bryce Conacher), Jeff (Amy Halpenny), and Rob (Amanda); and by Nancy Bowes (Alan, 1992); and by her adoring 13 great-grandchildren. Roberta was born and educated in Winnipeg and was a liberated woman before the phrase was invented. Bo has left us with many life lessons including -mind your table manners, don't go empty handed and only make meringues on a dry sunny day. Special thanks to her wonderful and caring team at home. A celebration of Roberta's life will be held on Wednesday, June 11 at 11.00 a.m. in Rosedale United Church, Toronto. Arrangements under the direction of the Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles Chapel Limited. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • When we moved to Winnipeg from New York in 1956, Roberta took my mother Lally Murray under her wing. She made her welcome, introduced her to people and probably cheered her up when Lally missed New York. Lally ended up loving Winnipeg. She always kept in touch with Roberta and typed her long, chatty letters on her blue notepaper. Roberta said, "She could have written for the New Yorker." She thought highly of my mother and communicated that to me. Roberta was very kind to Lally in the final years of Lally's Alzheimers, writing her letters faithfully and calling her in Montreal. My sister Lorraine and I will miss her very much. - Posted by: Madeleine Murray (daughter of a close friend) on: Jun 22, 2014

  • I will dearly miss my #1 client. She was faithfully on time and ready for her massage treatment every Tuesday morning. Mrs. T would always tell me whether or not she was going to have her hair done, which meant if she did I could go ahead with the head + scalp massage. Her favourite part to be massaged was her hands, and least favourite abdomen. At the end of the session while sitting up she would recite without fail "super-cala-fraga-listic-expi-alo-docius!" I looked forward to hearing her life lessons and stories, and I will remember our time together for the past 6 years. - Posted by: Tara Carou (Massage Therapist) on: Jun 10, 2014
