Cynthia Mae Turner Obituary

Cynthia Mae Turner, 89 of Peterborough, passed away peacefully at her home on November 6, 2023.  She was born in Peterborough on August 16, 1934, the daughter of Herbert and Mae (Barrett) Sumner.

Cynthia is survived by her son Herbert Turner, and his partner Cheryl Woodward, of Peterborough, and her daughter Heidi Brooks of Rindge.

She is predeceased by her husband Raymond Turner and her son-in-law Steve Brooks.
