Mrs. Rosetta Collier Turner was born October 14, 1938 in Montezuma, Macon County, Georgia to the late Dave Collier Jr. and Odessa Phillip Collier. Eight siblings, Annie Claude Forbes, Annette Collier, Arthur Collier, Charles Collier, Christine Catlin, David Collier, Dorothy Collier and Mary Hambrick, preceded her in death. Mrs. Turner acquired her education in the public school system of Macon County at the historic Flint River Farms School. For many years, she was employed at the Riverside Hospital as a cook and the Montezuma Nursing Home as a Nurse’s Assistant. Mrs. Turner then decided that her passion was still cooking and serving others, so she became employed with the Macon County School System as a cook.
At an early age she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and joined the band of Christian believers at First Salem Baptist Church where she served as deaconess and being a great cook, she was the head cook of the Hospitality Committee. She also supported every ministry of the church she loved so well. “Servant of God, well done.”
Mrs. Turner lived a happy life, she had a great personality and enjoyed cleaning, making others laugh and socializing with her family and friends.
