In Loving Memory
December 25, 1936 – December 21, 2016
Spanish Fort, AL
Carol Doris Stevenson Turner of Spanish Fort, passed away Wednesday night, December 21, 2016 at home with her loving family by her side. She served her community in many ways, from owning her own business to her success for many years in real estate. Carol was a lady of tremendous faith. She loved and served her Lord and always looked to Him as the source of her joy and strength. She was an active member of CityHope Church and always looked forward to Sundays! For Carol, it was her mission to let anyone she encountered, in whatever environment, to share Jesus’ love with words or expressions of encouragement. Everyone had value in her eyes and felt better and more important after being with her. Her family was her heart and all her grandkids loved hanging with their Nana! She is preceded in death by her brother, Homer Stevenson and her sisters, Wilma Mitchell and Marigayle Cooper.
Surviving are her daughters, Krista Brady Lippold and Melanie Brady (Michael) Waters all of Spanish Fort; sisters, Lucille Rayborn, Picayune, MS, Jackie (Rudy) Dugas and Linda Sue Kirkland, both of Bogalusa, LA. Also surviving are her beloved grandchildren, Alex Waters, Spanish Fort, Geoffrey Waters, Los Angeles, CA and Zachary and Carolyn Grace Lippold, both of Spanish Fort and many other nieces, nephews, relative and friends.
Carol wanted no grieving but for all to celebrate her life as she is now enjoying being in the presence of her Lord.
In keeping with her wishes, her family welcomes you to her Celebration Service at 1:00pm, Friday, December 30, 2016 at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 8271 Whispering Pines Rd. in Daphne.
