Homegoing Celebration for Mrs. Linda Turner will be 10:00 AM Friday, July 23, 2021 in the chapel of Gadsden Memorial Funeral Home, with Pastor Keith Dudley officiating. Interment will be immediately following the service at Alabama National Cemetery, Montevallo, AL.

Mrs. Linda Cheryl Jenkins Turner was born January 7, 1956 in Clinton, MS. The only child born to Herbert H. and Delores M. Jenkins. Her father, Herbert Hoover Jenkins, preceded her in death.

Linda accepted Christ at an early age. She was baptized at Christ Temple Church of Christ Holiness USA. Linda began educational background in the Gary Public School System, later transferring and receiving her diploma from Bishop Knoll High School in 1974. Linda continued her education at Indiana State University, Terre Haute, IN.

In 1984, Linda married Glen Boyd, and to this union, two children were born; Glen Anthony Boyd Jr., and Ashley Renee Boyd.

Linda worked in banking until relocating to Memphis, TN. At that time she started working at LeBonheur Children Hospital. Linda returned to Gary, IN. in 1994 and began working at St. Catherine Hospital.

While in Gary, IN., Linda met Patrick Turner and relocated to Gadsden, Al. The two were united in Holy Matrimony on August 27, 2005. After their union, the two attended Friendship Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Keith Dudley, and Linda later became a member.

Linda was a devoted wife, a wonderful mother and grandmother, and a caring daughter. She truly enjoyed people. Linda Cheryl knew how to enjoy life. Never letting anything, including sickness take away her smile. Linda's radiant smile and greetings of laughter will be missed.

Her memory will be cherished: mother, Delores M. Jenkins (IN); son, Glen Anthony Boyd, Jr. (AL); daughter, Ashley Renee Boyd (Attalla, Al.); one aunt, Edna Jones (NY); one uncle, James William (NJ); 4 grandchildren, Aza, Aydan, Gianna (IN), and Grayson (AL); one God-sister, Peggy Grant (IN); niece, Tosha Towells: special friends, Sharon Lovelace, Shirley McKinney, Faye Moore, Kathy Coley, Vanessa Traylor, DeDe Foxx and Janice Williams; special cousin and a host of other relatives and friends.
