Hallie Bernice (nee Barr) Turnbough of Cuba, Missouri was born on Wednesday, November 10, 1920 and passed away on Saturday, November 7, 2020, three days shy of her 100th birthday.
Hallie had looked forward to this milestone and had already enjoyed numerous cards and well wishes from family members and friends.
Hallie was raised in the Belgrade, Missouri area. At a young age she worked as a caregiver, a profession she would return to in later years as a senior companion and continue in through her 80’s. In between, she worked at various factories. Hallie was a woman of strong faith. She loved gospel and country music and could pick a guitar, a skill she passed on to her sons.
She spent her “golden” years living with her sister, Ann and was fortunate to spend the last two and a half years sharing a room with Ann at Cuba Manor, with Betty in the room next door. Hallie, Betty and Ann were known to many as the Golden Girls (or the Three Musketeers, depending on what they had been up to.)
She was preceded in death by her husband, Murphy Turnbough; parents, Fred and Susan (Evie) Barr; brothers, Jack Barr and Glenwood Barr; and sister, Dorothy Barr Turnbough.
Hallie is survived by her children, Judy and Bob Barlows of Overland Park, Kansas, Mike and Evelyn Turnbough of Steelville, Missouri, Rick and Shelly Turnbough of Bourbon, Missouri and Tim and Josie Turnbough of Cuba, Missouri; eight grandchildren, Brian and Scott Barlows, Joe, Jason, Brandon, Eric and Josh Turnbough, and Kelsey Pieber; 11 great grandchildren, Lauren, Ashley, Brett, Kevin, Jagger, Carson, Jack, Hallie Taylor, William, Murphy, and Hazel; and two great, great grandchildren, Dillon and Sage; three sisters, Betty Tiner of Cuba Missouri, Ann Hartwick of Cuba Missouri and Peggy Brey of Michigan; other relatives and friends.
