November 22, 1935 - May 13, 2022
Ann Elizabeth Ulmer Turner passed away at her home in Clearwater, Florida on May 13th, 2022. One of two children, Ann was born to Albert and Marion (Blythe) Ulmer in Binghamton, New York, on November 22, 1935. She moved with her family to Lakeland, Florida in 1947 and later moved to Clearwater. Ann met Ralph Richard Turner at Clearwater High School and married in 1953 at St. Cecelia Catholic Church. Ann devoted her life to her seven children and their families. While her children attended St. Cecelia Catholic School, she volunteered numerous hours to be an active part of her children’s lives. After her divorce, she served the Catholic Church as a Eucharistic Minister, visiting patients at Morton Plant Hospital. Ann led a weekly rosary group at a nursing home. She taught 5th grade faith formation for several years at Light of Christ Catholic Church. In 1998, Ann became a teacher assistant for Pinellas School System, nurturing special needs students at Calvin Hunsinger School. She lived in the same home for 63 years. During many of those years, she welcomed the neighborhood children providing love, support, and an occasional glass of Kool-Aid. Celebrating birthdays and holidays kept her busy in her spare time. From making homemade ice-cream for the 4th of July, to designing costumes and carving jack-o-lanterns for Halloween, to finding the perfect tree for Christmas. Ann worked hard to make every holiday special. She was famous for giving the best birthday parties. Her homemade party favors, preparation of favorite meals, and beautifully decorated cakes were always a bonus to these celebrations and helped to instill these traditions in her family. Ann’s character embodied kindness and caring, from her children, family, friends and especially cats. She found a stray cat at McDonalds and named it Ronald, one at Wendy’s she named Wendy, and the list goes on. Ann enjoyed reading, and in her spare time she loved getting lost in a great book. She also enjoyed the beach, though her love of the sun was limited to sun rises and sunsets. She had a quiet sense of humor, and a quick but kind wit. Her Catholic faith was the most important part of her life and drove her to be the person she was. For many years Ann began her day by attending daily mass. Her prayer life and her faith instilled these values in her children. She was a beautiful reflection of Gods love with everyone she encountered. Ann is survived by her children Teresa Mayberry (Alan) of Largo, Florida, Debra Moberley (Bill) of New Port Richey, Florida, Timothy Turner of Clearwater, Florida, Sara Klug (David) of Clearwater Florida, Maria Brannon (Chris) of New Port Richey, Florida, Anthony Turner (Melissa) of Cleveland Tennessee and Katrina Keisling (Daniel) of Clearwater, Florida. She will always be remembered as Grandmommy, Grandma, Grandma Ann, and Grandma-Grandma, to her grandchildren, Christy Medole (Mark), Jennifer Prater (Tyson), Brian Ottoson (Tiffany), Joel Donagan (Brooke), Madyson Turner, Felicia Keisling, Mackenzie Turner, Micah Keisling, Olivia Keisling and Jonah Keisling. She will also be remembered by her great grandchildren, Gavin Medole, Blake Prater (Emily), Aly Prater and Aiden Medole. Ann will be missed by her loving cat Galahad, who gave her comfort, and love. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Empath Suncoast Hospice or the SPCA of Pinellas County.
