I considered Reba a dear friend who shared so much of her knowledge of family history with me. I will never forget how she drove me all around Colquitt County to show me Turner family homesites and graveyards. I would never have been able to compile the Turner Family History Book without her information that she had gathered about the Moore family and also the families from New Elm. She was also a good friend to my in-laws, Lewis and Bertha Turner. They had gone to school with her and enjoyed getting together with her. I will miss Reba, but a part of her lives on in my book! The photo I am sharing is one of the last pictures I have of Reba--taken in 2003 at a Turner Reunion. She and Lewis Tu...rner were having fun sharing old memories!Read more

I loved that lady dearly. She was so much fun to be around. She was a sport.
