Gay “Gigi” Turner, 58, of Havelock, passed away on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at Carolina East Medical Center of New Bern.
Gigi was raised in Jonesville, SC and moved to Sandy Mush, NC when she married the love of her life 37 years ago, Clayton Turner of Spindale, NC.
Gigi and Clayton lived in the same home for 28 years before they decided it was time to leave what the know to move across North Carolina to be closer to their son and his family.
Once moving to Havelock, Gigi and Clayton become active members of Cherry Point Baptist Church. Gigi would spend her Tuesday mornings at church doing Care Team and then return in the evenings to do Bridge. She was there every Wednesday evening for prayer meeting and every Sunday for church. Gigi and Clayton became huge supporters of the Backpack Ministry. They would go to West Virginia every year to deliver the backpacks. Gigi loved her church family and they truly loved her.
Gigi was a fun loving, godly woman who loved Prince and Michael Bolton. Within five minutes of meeting her you were laughing and knew you found a friend for life.
Gigi is survived by her husband, Clayton Turner; son, Clay Turner and wife, Melissa of Havelock; granddaughter, Mikalyn Clause of Havelock; grandson, Austin “Austy” Turner of Havelock; two sisters, Connie Millwood (Ernest) of Jonesville, SC; Norma Kerr (Larry) of Spartanburg, SC; three nieces, Jane Lewis of Jonesville, SC; Nicole Tesner of Union, SC; Jamie Axson of Union, SC; nephew, Shawn Gillespie of Moore, SC.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Herbert and Evelyn Harris, brother, Herbie Harris, sister, Trudy Gillespie; nephew, Jim Hart.
A Celebration of Life for Gigi will be on Sunday, November 8 at Cherry Point Baptist Church in Havelock. The family will receive friends at 1 pm and the service will begin a 2 pm.
