30 May 1952 - 12 November 2014
Throughout her life, Rosemary Turnbull was an incredibly active, efficient and passionate woman with a huge number of friends.
Rosemary loved children so much and cared deeply for them. And as a primary school teacher, she was loved by many of the young children that she taught and by their parents. When she discovered World Vision she was drawn to help children in the developing world who needed support. Rosemary was very impressed her loyal support continued for an incredible 26 years.
Inspired by Rosemary's generous heart, her family have chosen to honour her memory and continue her passions through fundraising for World Vision. In May 2015, her daughter Joey, along with other family members, took part in the Edinburgh Half Marathon. Their sponsorship, along with the gifts given at Rosemary's funeral, have raised over £3,000 for World Vision's work. The hope is to continue fundraising and make sure Rosemary's inspiration continues to help more and more children around the world.
"I hope to continue Mum's support of this incredibly worthwhile charity and so hope that this is just the beginning!" Joey Turnbull.
