Pamela Ann Turner, 62, of Burlington, Iowa, died on Saturday, June 29, 2024, at her home.

Born on March 22, 1962, in Monmouth, Ill., she was the daughter of Donald M. and Shirley A. Conners Stokes. On Dec. 21, 1981, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Burlington, she married Bruce E. Turner.

Pam was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Her heart was loving, caring and pure. Pam truly cared for everyone she came in contact with. For several years Pam owned and operated an in-home daycare and had recently decided it was time to retire. Her daycare children were her life and she loved each child like they were her own. Pam was the glue to the family. She enjoyed hosting huge gatherings inviting all family and friends. Most of all Pam’s family was her constant and she was their constant.

She is survived by her husband Bruce; two daughters: Shirley (John) Rothell and Bobbie Sours both of Burlington; six grandchildren: Ryley, Donny (Katlyn), Pamela, Taylor, Trevor and Tyler; two great grandchildren: Paysley, Willa and one on the way; two sisters: Carol Starr of Oquwaka, Illinois and Debi Witt of Eldora, Iowa. Also surviving is Travis Sours, who was like a son to Pam.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother Donald Stokes and sister Sandy Stokes.

Per her wishes, cremation has been accorded and entrusted to the care of Lunning Chapel.

A celebration of life will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, July 13, 2024, at the Eagles Club in Burlington.
