Edith Turner (1921-2016)
‘Edie’ Turner, anthropologist, Catholic convert and phenomenal human being, died on 18th June 2016 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Edie was a valued patron and supporter of the Afterlife Research Centre. She continued to teach, write and lecture until very near the end of her life, and will be very much missed by friends, family and students. Edie and Victor Turner were a formidable anthropological duo, and although Vic died in 1983 his presence was never far away, in the house they shared and in the energy that Edie continued to draw from their relationship. No doubt they are continuing to blaze a trail on the other side.
The Daily Progress published this thoughtful and informative obituary of Edie.
