Rebecca Anne (Varnadore) Turner

December 23, 1947 ~ September 10, 2023 (age 75) 75 Years Old


“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” Psalm 116:15

On Sunday, September 10, 2023, Rebecca "Becky" Anne Varnadore Turner, 75,  peacefully closed her eyes in death on this earth, but became more fully alive than she’s ever been as she opened them and saw her Savior.

Becky was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Margaret Varnadore; brother, Mike Varnadore; and her husband, Lamar Turner. She is survived by her daughter, Latisha Jordan Brighurst; granddaughter, Hannah Brighurst; brother, Eddie Varnadore (Kathy); and sister, Ivette (Rusty) Williams.

Becky was born in Brunswick, Georgia, but after having graduated from Groves High School in Garden City, she moved to Alabama with her family when her father’s job transferred him there. While in Alabama, she married and had her family. She worked as a cosmetologist and as an activities director for a nursing home. Later she reconnected with her high school sweetheart, married, and returned to live in Grovetown, Georgia, her home since 2002. Before they both declined in health, they were active members of Grove First Baptist Church.

One of her nieces stated it beautifully in what she wrote about her Aunt Becky:

“I’m so thankful for the truth of Scripture that promises us, “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” On Sunday, my Aunt Becky took her last breath on earth and is now getting to experience eternity with her Savior. Aunt Becky was definitely a character and she loved life. She loved her church, her family, collecting different knickknacks (especially chickens!), arts and crafts, costume jewelry, and animals (especially dogs and birds!). From an earthly perspective, death seems so permanent, but as a believer, the moment you are absent from the body, the suffering of the present time ends! As a Christian, this is our hope and joy. This is why we can endure hardships, trials, persecution, sickness, or anything else this world throws our way, because we know it’s only temporary! One day we will be absent from this body and be present with the Lord forever!"

Becky will be interred privately next to her husband at Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Milledgeville, Georgia.
