Wynnefield
Philadelphia County

Turvanda was born to Avedis and Turvanda Sookiasian who were immigrants from Malatya, Turkey living at 815 Columbia Avenue in Philadelphia. She became ill at 2 months old and died 10 days later at the newly-opened Babies' Hospital in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia by Fairmount Park. She was baptized at the hospital the day before her death by Rev. J. Bentham Walker of Zion Protestant Episcopal Church of North Philadelphia. She was buried with her mother at American Mechanics Cemetery (Division A, Section 16, Lot 28, Grave 1) until 1951 when it closed and was moved to Philadelphia Memorial Park.

The grave can be found by going to the right after exiting the office, down to the green fence with a building behind it. Straight ahead is a road lined by trees, which is followed down until a last name plaque in the ground between the road and tree saying 'Scull'. The grave is on the far side of the tree, past which is another plaque saying Huston and then a button in the ground marking off lots 23, 24, 25, and 26.
