Opal Young Turner, a resident and pillar to the Citronelle community, went to her Heavenly home Saturday, July 24, 2021. She was 62 years old, born April 09, 1959, to the late Aaron and Ethel Mae Young. Opal was a devoted member of Bethel Baptist Church and her love for the Lord was shown throughout her life. Everything she did was for the glory of God, whether it be helping her community or raising her family. Together with her husband of 42 years, Opal raised a beautiful family while caring for her family farm that not only took care of the family, but also was made abundant to the Citronelle community. Opal was always helping throughout the community and devoting her time to helping others, which she did so humbly. Her humility is passed onto her children and grandchildren, and her light will shine through them for generations to come.
Those left to cherish her memory include her husband, Hilton L. Turner; her children, Elton Turner (Cristi), Kendra Risner (Tim), Ira Turner (Jessica), Kristy McWain (Judd), and Kaylene Cooper (David); her grandchildren, Evan, Bre, Coltyn, Jase, Ransom, Casetyn, Ryman, Kamreigh, and Briggs; her siblings, Ronald Lambeth, Gayle Young, Karen Sue Peters, and Daniel Allen; her special nephews, Neal Turner and Keeven Turner, and many more nieces and nephews; and a multitude of other family members and countless friends.
