Eva Turner

Eva Turner died Saturday, Feb. 12, 2022, after a brief period in hospice care.

Miss Turner was the beloved daughter of the late William Turner, Frances Sauer (nee Rispoli) and her step-father, Harry Sauer.

Earlier in her life, Eva was a dental hygienist, a home health aide and a mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service.

She lived a quiet, simple life. She enjoyed creating sketches and mixed media art which she gifted to family, friends and her physicians. Despite the many challenges she had in her life, she had a quick wit and sense of humor which made her enjoyable to be around.

Perhaps what Eva will be most remembered for is her devotion to her mother and step-father. She provided loving care to both through their illnesses.

She is survived by her uncle, Vincent Rispoli and her aunt, Janet Wright. Eva is also survived by cousins, Angela Salucio, Josephine D’Addessa, Joseph D’Addessa, Nancy Frank, Daniel Rispoli and Diane Addesso.

Theresa Wescott also her cousin, along with her husband, George, may be credited with maintaining a quality of life for Eva during her illness over the last three years. They lovingly attended to all her needs medically and otherwise. Eva was very grateful for all their attention and effort in providing for her.
