August 16, 1964 - June 27, 2013
Beverly “Dawn” Aldrich Turner, 48 of Peoria Village, Ohio, died Thursday, June 27, 2013 at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center from injuries she sustained as a result of an automobile accident. Dawn grew up in the Temple, Texas area. She later lived for many years in and near Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and finally moved to Ohio in early 2008. She pursued various careers during her life including retail management, social work and finally, fire protection and prevention consultation. Dawn loved gardening and her flower displays have been widely praised by passersby, neighbors and her Facebook community. She was also an active home remodeler, helping to transform the appearance of her old homestead that she loved. Dawn was known to her neighbors to be an amazing cook and her chicken and dumplings were renowned locally. Her laughter, charm and “Hippy Dippy Weather Gal Reports” will be among the many things her family and friends will miss and cherish in their hearts forever and always. She was born August 16, 1964 in San Antonio, TX to Riley Thomas Aldrich who survives in Moffat, TX and the late Beverly Gail Holston Aldrich. Dawn is also survived by her loving husband, Terry; two daughters, Ashley Cruz of Sedona, AZ and Bobbi Lynne (Jesus Marin) Cruz of Temple, TX; a son, Joshua (Christy) Hensel of Troy, TX; five grandchildren, Jaden, Abel, Kadence, Natalie and Brady; two sisters, Dedra Aldrich and Tracye (Chris) Aldrich-Bentley, both of Moffat, TX; and a brother, Shawn (Geneva) Aldrich of Moffat, TX.
