Margaret Jean Turner
Margaret Jean Turner (Jeanie) died 2-22-15, Sunday at home, after a 20 year battle with breast cancer. She was born to Philip Miner Hoadley and Lois Eva Blake Hoadley on 11-8-48 in Escondido, Ca. Jeanie grew up there with her beloved siblings: Joanna, Phil jr, Debbie, and Katie. Jeanie loved all living things. Jeanie relandscaped her yard to accommodate more of her beautiful flowers and plants. Jeanie had a dog, three cats, a bird and 6 gold fish. Jeanie was a hard working woman. She got her bachelor of computer science at Seattle U in her 40’s and worked in the field all her working life.
Jeanie’s working years included 7 years with her Wacap adoption agency, 7 more years with Westek software company and 2 more in her audio-visual tech at Highlands middle school. Cancer forced her retirement in 2008. She enjoyed BCMetz web exchange of cancer knowledge, listening to her Prairie Home Companion, and road trips and cruises with her husband, Steve Turner and Kara and Jacob Edwards-King.
She is survived by daughters Annmarie, Jennie, Tai, Kara, Marion, Tracy and Kelly and her son Jamal; grand children: Hailey and Aurora, Cole and Leah.
Special thanks go to Kara Soo Edwards-King, who made sure she had everything that she needed so she could live at home until her passing.
