Eva H Turner, our dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother, and friend passed away in Grover on October 4, 2019 at the age of 104 years of age. She was born in Grover, WY to Joseph N. Anderson and Emma Hepworth Anderson, the second of five children. She was a sister to Hazel Grant, Roice Anderson, and Byron Anderson, all of whom preceded her in death, and is survived by her sister, Hilda Stitt, of Afton.
She attended Elementary School in Grover and High School in Afton, graduating in 1933. In 1935 she married Edward Lloyd Pead in the Salt Lake Temple. Together they had four children: Dixie Ann (Loren Herbert)--both deceased, Kathleen (John Franson), Jeannie (Tom Jeremy—deceased), and Valoy (Ramon Egan). Lloyd suddenly passed away in 1946, seven months before Valoy was born.
In 1947 Eva was appointed Postmaster for the town of Grover, a position she held for 30 years. She married Ernest E. Turner in 1953. Twins were born to them, Farrel (Christine “Tina” Blow) and Faye (Thomas Hepworth), making six children in all. In addition to this were 28 grandchildren, 129 great grandchildren, and 29 great-great grandchildren.
As a faithful member of the LDS Church she served in many positions, including Relief Society President. She ministered to her sisters and neighbors with never a complaint. She was an exceptional woman who truly enjoyed being involved in good works. She leaves behind shoes which cannot easily be filled.
A funeral service was held on October the 8th with interment in the Grover Town Cemetery.
