Joann Turner

April 14, 1931 — May 22, 2022

Loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to all, JoAnn Turner of Calimesa, CA, went home to be with the Lord on May 22, 2022. JoAnn was 91 and was surrounded by many loving family members when she passed.

JoAnn, born to Marion Earle Skiff and Moleta Fern Skiff (nee Vann) on April 14, 1931 in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. A member of the church from a very young age, JoAnn became involved with the Southern Baptist Association, and it was at this time that she met her husband of nearly 40 years, Elton Turner. Together Elton and JoAnn became well respected Pastor and Wife in various churches throughout Southern California.

She also assisted many families through her years as a Social Worker in Riverside County Family Services.

JoAnn was passionate about sharing the love of our Lord with others and was an integral part of of our church, Bryant St Baptist Church. A loyal servant to God, JoAnn spent many of her hours dedicating her life to senior ministries. Now that JoAnn has passed into the arms of our Lord, we should remind ourselves that while this is the end of JoAnn’s physical life on Earth, it’s the beginning of an eternal and beautiful journey for her.

JoAnn joins her husband Elton and her daughter Mary in Heaven. She is survived by many loving family members, including sister Viola, many nieces and nephews, daughter Joelle (Gary), granddaughters Megan (Daniel), Carole (Ivan), grandson Scott, and eight very beloved great-grandchildren.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, June 4th, at the Bryant St Baptist Church at 10:00 am.

“O May all who come behind us find us faithful.”
