ANSONIA — Phyllis B. Turner, 94, of Ansonia, Ohio, went to be with her Lord and Savior Wednesday, August 12, 2020, at the Village Green Health Campus in Greenville.

She was born on April 24, 1926, in Flint, Michigan to the late Ralph and Susie (Blakeley) Boze.

Phyllis was a faithful wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved her family and put them first in all that she did. She was a caring, generous and gentle lady. In fact, there was not a mean bone in her body. Phyllis was a lifelong member of the Ansonia 1st Church of God where she and her husband, Junior, were very active.

Phyllis is survived by her daughters, Diann (John) Hartzell and Vickie (Mike) Doyle; sons, Jerry (Carrie) Turner and Tim (Jan) Turner, all of Ansonia; grandchildren, Brian (Lora) Brandon, Kelly (Jason) Laux, Laurie (Mike) Erwin, Lisa (Todd) Mowery, Robin (Jerry) Spencer, Kristin Doyle, Abby (Zack) Evers, Sarah (Kenny) Edwards, Audrey (Adam) Kaiser, Alec (Brittany) Turner, and Eric Hartzell; 30 great-grandchildren; six great-great grandchildren; a brother-in-law, Bob (Nadine) Turner; sisters-in-law, Norma Rammel and Janet Turner; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank all her caregivers and the staff at the Village Green, and those at State of the Heart Care for all the care they provided to Phyllis.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, a private funeral service will take place Monday, August 17, 2020, with Pastor David Hackner officiating. Burial will follow in Greenville Township Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to State of the Heart Care or the Ansonia 1st Church of God.
