WILLIAMSBURG - Caroline Bell Turner, 69, of Williamsburg, VA, died on Sunday, June 28, 2009, after a long, heroic battle with cancer.

Caroline was born in Little Rock, AR, and grew up and lived on army bases in Europe and the United States, but she called Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY, home.

Her mother, Mary Harris Bell and her father, Retired Army Major General Raymond Earle Bell, West Point Class of 1927; and her sister, Elizabeth S. Corser, preceded her in death.

Caroline was a kind, faithful, and courageous Army Wife whose passions were her family and her friends. She lovingly raised the Turner family while keeping the home-fires burning.

She cared for Wounded Warriors who had served their country and always supported the wives and children of Soldiers in her husband's Army units.

She was an avid tennis player and was a member of the Williamsburg Inn Tennis Club.

She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Retired Army Colonel Robert A. "Tex" Turner; their son, Daniel R. Turner and daughter-in-law, Sharon J. Merchant of Palm Beach Gardens, FL; their daughter, E. Mary Boucher and son-in-law, Bernard H. Boucher of Schwenksville, PA; their grandson, Maxwell R. Turner of Palm Beach, FL; their granddaughter, Danielle T. Casilio of Bethlehem, PA; two brothers, Raymond E. Bell Jr. and James D. Bell; and two sisters, Barbara H. Brown and Susan G. Bell.

Caroline will be buried at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY, on a date to be determined. The Turner family received friends and guests from 4pm to 6pm Friday, July 3, 2009, at the Nelsen Funeral Home, 3785 Strawberry Plains Road, Williamsburg, VA.
