Family of the Month – January 2016


Charles and Marina Turner

charlesmarinaCharles joined our council last August and wasted little time becoming involved in KC activities along with Marina. They pitched in at the Cedar Hill baseball concession stand during fall ball. Charles was one of the council’s non-Fourth Degree members who gladly volunteered to help during Assembly 2799’s annual clergy appreciation dinner last November. The Turners live in DeSoto. Charles joined 8157 just a short time after going through Holy Spirit’s RCIA program. He was born in Wheeler, Texas and then attended high school and college in Oklahoma. Music was his vocation after earning a master’s degree in education administration. He was a band director and/or music teacher for 36 years before retiring in 2009. Naturally, he has been a member of the parish’s 5:30 p.m. Saturday Mass choir for the past four years.
