LIVERMORE — Ann Turner, 70, left this world for her heavenly home on April 30. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at Riverside Place in Hoquiam, Washington. She was born in Owensboro, Kentucky on Aug. 13, 1951, to Elmo L. and Ora B. Turner. She grew up in Livermore, Kentucky and was a graduate of Livermore High School and Western Kentucky University.

She was on the board of directors for Grandma’s Corner in Owensboro. She served on the zoning board of adjustments for the city of Livermore. She had been an active member of the Livermore Women’s Club where she helped in the establishment of the McLean County Library. She had a passion for reading and served on the library board. She enjoyed traveling, her cat Bonkers, watching UK basketball and most of all spending time with her grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents.
