Leona M. Turk, 90 of Gadsden, passed on Monday, November 26th. She is survived by her family. Service is Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses. Interment following at Lincoln Hill Cemetery.



Leona was born April 16, 1928 in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama to the union of Henry Thomas Miller and Leona Terrell Miller. Her Formal education was received in the city of her birth, graduating from Carver High School and attending Gadsden Business School.


Leona was a talented person who worked as a seamstress and caterer, preparing many tasty and delightful meals.



In later years she began a serious study of the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses. After becoming convinced of the Bible truths of God’s Kingdom and the paradise earth Jehovah purposed for believing mankind, she symbolized her dedication to serving the true God by water baptism on July 11, 1969. The preaching work was her passion. She shared Bible truths with all whom she met.


Sometime after her baptism, she married the love of her life, Horace Turk. Theirs was a theocratic union which brought them great joy until his death.


She leaves to cherish her memory, a brother, Billy Miller, Gadsden, Alabama; sister-in-law, Mary Miller, Highland Fall, New York; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and many dear friends.

. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to your family for the loss of your loved one. The loss of someone in death can be a very difficult time for families. Grief is a feeling that everyone deals with it in their own way. Jesus reacted to the death of his friend Lazarus even though he had the power to bring him back to life. (John 11:33-35) By resurrecting Lazarus and others Jesus demonstrated on a small scale what he will do as the King of God’s Kingdom worldwide in fulfillment of Jehovah’s promise at Revelation 21:3-5.
