Alberta Bass Turnley was born April 30, 1925 in Zwolle to Dennis Bass and Mary Bush Bass and she entered into rest on April 28, 2019 in Many. She was the last surviving member of eight children born to Mr. and Mrs. Bass of Hemphill, Texas.

Alberta loved to garden and to grow her own vegetables. Everyone who knew her was well aware of her humorous personality and the love she had for making other people laugh! She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren. Each year she always looked forward to her family reunion in Texas.

Preceding Alberta in death were her husband, Sidney Turnley; and her parents, Dennis and Mary Bass.

Those left behind to cherish her memory are her sons, Danny Dubose and wife Lillie of Hemphill, Texas, Charles Turnley of Many, and Howard Turnley and wife Tammy of Many; daughter, Betty Adams and husband Bobby of Zwolle; 10 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, and other family members.

Honoring Alberta as pallbearers were Josh Anthony, Clint Paddie, Kenny Turnley, Brian Verdin, Dan Dubose, and Bobby Adams, Jr.

Funeral services were held May 1 at the Many Chapel of Rose-Neath with interment to be at Pilgrim’s Rest Cemetery in Many.

Mrs. Turnley’s family would like to thank all the staff at Hospice of Many for the friendship, comfort and care they provided over the past several months for their loved one.
