Lucille Turner Joseph, age 92, of Water Valley, MS died Saturday, October 31, 2020, at Yalobusha County Nursing Home. Being born to Clayton and Elsie (Person) Turner on October 18, 1928, Lucille was a person of strong moral character and was never afraid to work. This was evidenced by her career. She not only worked at the Water valley Laundry and later at the Davidson Elementary, but volunteered for many years working on the election committee and doing seamstress work up until her health precluded her from doing so. Lucille was also a past member of The Order of Eastern Star. Lucille also served The Lord in Everdale Church as an usher and a church mother. She enjoyed fishing, sewing, quilting, crossword puzzles, and cooking her scrumptious fried pies. But nothing was more important to her than her family.
Visitation is planned for Monday, November 2, 2020, in the Gardiner Room at Seven Oaks Funeral Home from 1:00 PM until 2:45 PM. A graveside service will follow at 3:00 PM at the Oak Ridge Cemetery. Ricky Pulley, Terrance Buford, Vincent Judson, Jason Judson, Ollie Velester Judson, Amos Judson, Joseph Judson, and Preston Willingham will serve as pallbearers.
Lucille is survived by two sons, Cleveland Joseph (Rosie) of Oxford, MS, N.L. Joseph (Sarah) of Memphis, TN; three daughters, Linda Faye Pulley (Willie), Irene Joseph (Ollie), Ophelia Buford (Rochester) all of Water Valley, MS; one brother, Robert Turner (Evelyn) of Water Valley, MS; two sisters, Bernice Willingham (William), Ona Mae Wright, all of Davenport, IA; as well as a host of grand and great-grandchildren.

J.C. Turner, Clayton Turner Jr, R.D. Turner, Lawrence Turner, Joe Turner, Claude Turner; and two sisters, Louise “Hawkins, and Ora Mae Kerr.
