Christine Ann Turner

On 14th April, 2020 in hospital, Christine aged 74 years of Altham West, Accrington. The dearly beloved wife of Jack, much loved and loving mum of Carole, Stephen and David, loving nanna of Graeme, Nina, Olivia, Chloe and Willow and grannan of Jack. Also a dear sister, sister on law and auntie.

Christine spent her working life at Mount Pleasant Primary School where she was loved and respected by all –   staff, pupils and parents alike. She began as a lunch lady then became a teaching assistant and also worked in the office. Everyone loved Christine. She was always smiling, always happy and spread her happiness over everyone like a warm blanket. Out of work, Christine loved spending her time with her family and huge circle of friends. She loved her holidays, meals out, visiting her friends and chatting on the phone. Christine will be remembered for her beautiful smile, which could fill a room.

Gill Whittaker

The ‘Queen of Mount Pleasant’. When I talk to people about Mrs. T. they have many memories in common; her animal print clothes, fantastic nails, perfect hairstyles and permanent tan. Those of us that knew her for longer, remember her sharp wit, words of wisdom, knowledge of children and their families, practical nature and thirst for knowledge. Over her many years at Mount Pleasant she helped hundreds of children reach their potential and kept many teachers (young and old) on the right track. She will be greatly missed. (I hope, Mrs. T, that my spelling and punctuation is correct.)
