Moments of Yesterday are Memories of Today
Together Again
July 11, 1948 – December 27, 2017
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness; we announce the passing of our beloved father, Stanley Lawrence (Perhaps) Turner on Wednesday December 27, 2017, at the age of 69. Dad passed away peacefully with his Children, Grandchildren, Family and Friends by his side at St. Anthony’s Hospital, while his brother Dennis sang at his bedside.
Dad was born at home to Saul and Mary (Hart) Turner, in Grand Rapids, MB. On July 11, 1948. Dad and Mom were married on Tuesday October 28, 1969, in Grand Rapids, MB. They had three girls and one boy; two other children were lost before birth. Mya Ducharme became a Turner on Sept. 25, 2017 when her adoption was finalized. Sidney Brass is a son of Stanley.
Dad got his middle years education in Grand Rapids; He later continued his education at Keewatin Community College, (known today as UCN). While attending college, this is where he met Muriel (Lola), the woman he would spend the rest of his life with. Stan lovingly called Lola “Dear”. Lola call Stan “My Dear”, we never heard them call each other by their names. Over the years, together they would go hunting, fishing, and trapping. Stan was an expert Fisherman, Hunter, and Trapper. Joyce helped with the moose meat and fish, Lorette helped with the ducks and geese, DeeDee helped with the muskrats, stretching and skinning. Blair was his dad’s helper in hunting and fishing. Dad thoroughly enjoyed camping, and did a lot of volunteering at the Cultural Camps for OCN. Dad was a very generous man, he was always available to provide fish, ducks, and moose meat for many families in their time of need; he provided moral support and shared in the singing at the wakes. Dad had a big heart and made room in their home for many foster children over the years.
Dad was proud of our accomplishments and stood by us during all the hard times. Dad loved us all equally, he had no favorites. In Stan’s younger years, he was placed at Ninette; he had TB, like so many others in those years. Dad worked all his life, starting when he was younger, with his brothers, he use to cut logs and haul them by sled and horses. He worked with Comstock, various programs with Manitoba Hydro. He also worked at the mine in Flin Flon. He was an expert fisherman; this is how he provided for his family. Stanley hunted constantly with his brother Frank, together with the help from family; they built a cabin along the shore of Saskatchewan River. Many family and friends enjoyed many fun times together at the cabin.
Dad had a great sense of humor, and enjoyed the company of all his family and friends

Vision by Lucy Robinson-Cook
“I had a beautiful dream of my Uncle Stanley and his wife Lola. They were in a Lund; both were wearing camo hunting outfits. It was a beautiful sunny day and they were going into this creek, beautiful emerald green forest with moss on the side. There was a couple in a boat ahead of them. We were in a boat behind them and as they went into the creek, the entrance to it started narrowing and we couldn’t follow them. They turned around, looked at us, waved, and had the most happy beautiful smiles on their faces, they were glowing.”
