September 28, 1918 — February 10, 2020

M. Aldena Turner, of Twin Falls, ID., went to be with her Lord on February 10, 2020 in Twin Falls, ID.

Aldena was born Sept. 30, 1918 in Novelty, MO., the youngest child of William & Blanche Kleinkopf. At the age of 10 yrs., she moved with her folks & siblings from Novelty, MO. To Idaho, where she attended schools in Hansen, Roseworth, Murtaugh, Kimberly, Hollister & back to Murtaugh, where she met & married the love of her life, Roy O.Turner. She spent her early married life at her husband's side farming in Murtaugh and later Eden, ID, and would later work for Roy's brother, Rufus, at Community Building Supply, Murtaugh.

Aldena loved being a housewife & caring for their 3 children, doing handcrafts of various kinds - especially embroidery, crocheting & sewing, raising gardens (vegetable & flower) and doing lots of canning. Her joy was her Lord, her family and her home.
