Serving the Community Since 1960

Celebration of Life to be held at a later date

F. Eileen Burklow Turner, 78, passed away on Tuesday, July 13, 2021 at her home in Williamsburg after a very brief battle with cancer. Eileen grew up on Long Island and graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Fulbright Scholarship.  She earned her Executive MBA from the College of William & Mary while working fulltime. She was a Marketing Executive for Newport News Shipbuilding. She was a member of Temple Beth El of Williamsburg. Eileen loved horses and spent many hours horseback riding. She traveled the world and was an avid sailor on her boat, Cats’ Paws. She was a member of Hampton Yacht Club and the past Commodore of the Old Point Comfort Yacht Club. She was a gourmet cook - her specialty, Challah, which she often gave away. Eileen loved people and loved life itself!

Eileen was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Janet Wolff. She is survived by her loving husband of 25 years, Michael Turner; her daughter, Andrea (Jay); son, Ben (Jenny); 5 grandchildren; her brother, Mark Wolff (Betty); a host of brothers and sisters-in-law; many nieces and nephews and her feline children, Mister Carson and Uncle Ted.

A Celebration of Eileen’s Life will be held at a later date. Donations can be made to the Heritage Humane Society, 430 Waller Mill Rd., Williamsburg, VA 23185. Arrangements by Weymouth Funeral Home.
