It was at church where she met the love of her life, Billy “Bill” Turner. They were married on August 5, 1989 in Slaton and had 25 years together of love and laughter as well as a shared passion for music and travel. Jimmie had a beautiful alto voice and was a member of several quartets over the years. She deeply loved her family and served them with her prayers and generous heart.
