Sarah Elizabeth Turner, beloved daughter of Bryan Turner and Judith Turner, passed away on July 18 from pulmonary failure at the age of 26.Despite her lifelong physical limitations, she had a bright spirit and a will to be heard. She loved all animals, but told us she was "born to speak horse," and enjoyed every opportunity to be on horseback at Camp K. She loved her nightly routine which consisted of reading and being read to by her mom. Sarah had a great sense of humor, and was quite a teaser. She was also very social, quickly learning the names and life details of everyone around her. We will miss her profoundly.
Sarah is survived by her mother, Judith Turner of Sandy; father and stepmother Bryan and Summer Turner of Draper; siblings Julia, Jacob, Christopher, Crystal, Charity, and her devoted brother Scott, who was with her until the end; Canadian brothers Christopher and Michael; grandparents Mike and Judith Mayer (North Carolina), and Larry and Marlene Turner (Texas), as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A celebration of her life will held on Friday, July 21 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, Salt Lake City. Please wear brightly colored, casual clothing and bring a memory of Sarah to share. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, July 22 at 9:00 AM at St. John the Baptist, 300 East 11800 South, Draper.
The family is grateful for the many years of care received at Shriner's Hospital, as well as staff at Topham's Care Center, Country Life Care Center, and recently, West Jordan Care Center. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Shriner's Hospital in Sarah's memory.
