Avis Nichols Turman, 87, of Mooresville, N.C., left this earth for her Heavenly home on Thursday, July 23, 2020, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on September 21, 1932, in Wilkes County, N.C., to the late Finley Gibson and Zona May Nichols. Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Proverbs 3:5-6, which says: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.”
Her greatest joys in life were her children, grandchildren, and serving her church, Laura Memorial Church of God. She was a loyal long-time employee of General Times, retiring after 33 years of service at age 70.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Bobby James Turman; sons, Danny Overcash and Craig Turman; and brother, Harold Nichols.
She is survived by her children, Linda Estes, Brenda Mack (Chris), Sharon Washam (Jerry), Barbara Wood (Stephen), Robert Turman (Nancy), and Jeffrey Turman (Renee); 18 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren.
Out of an abundance of caution for our family and yours, a private service will be held.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County, 2347 Simonton Road, Statesville, NC 28625.
Cavin-Cook Funeral Home & Crematory, Mooresville, is serving the Turman family. Condolences may be made to the family at www.cavin-cook.com.
