Virginia “Ginny” E. (Kreiser) Turner, age 94 and formerly of Shermans Dale, passed away peacefully in her sleep on August 3, 2023. Born at home on August 10, 1928 to the late Calvin T. and Clara R (Daup) Kreiser, Sr. of Wheatfield, Ginny is survived by her two sons: William D. (Carolyn) Turner, Jr. of Shermans Dale and Barry L. (Dorothy) Turner of Carlisle; Son In Law William Dunkleberger of Elliottsburg; six grandchildren: Mike (Maria) Turner of Duncannon, Melissa (Gary) Dressler of Enola, Angie (Nathan) Fry of Lebanon, Angel Turner of Laurel River, SC, Marcie (Troy Snyder) Emlet of New Bloomfield, and Chrissy (Matthew) Kaseman of Carlisle; 27 great grandchildren; and her brother: Calvin T. Kreiser, Jr. of Duncannon. In addition to her parents, Ginny is preceded in death by her beloved husband, William D. Turner, Sr. who died in 2007, daughter, Susan M. Dunkleberger, who died in 2017, grandson, Sgt. Brent W. Dunkleberger, who died in service in 2006, and her six siblings: William H. Kreiser, Bess K. Weldon, Harold L. Kreiser, Paul R. Kreiser, Jacob R. Kreiser, and Alice “Jean” Nearhood. She always put family first and was generous, giving and loving.
Ginny proudly raised her family and ran the household, she and her family were also active with Pisgah UM Church. She loved being a homemaker and grandmother. This feisty, stubborn, and strong lady rebuilt her home after a total loss house fire in 1949. She was known for her chicken corn soup, potato salad, dandelion salad, and finger jello. The grandchildren fondly remember the phenomenal sand tarts she made for each one for Christmas, as well as the bike rides and picnics she led with each grandchild. Her sons and daughter shared the adventures she led, with them in town, driving to friends’ homes to visit (“allegedly” before she had a valid driver’s license). The children and grandchildren known to be more active were tied to the clothesline so Ginny could keep track of them.
The funeral service for Ginny will be held in the calming chapel of Nickel Lochstampfor Family Funeral Home in Loysville on Tuesday, August 8 at 12 noon, with Rev. Bill Pipp officiating. The family will receive friends and family for condolences from 11 AM to 12 noon.
