Lucy “toast” Turner Jefferson was afforded rest from the journey of life on Friday morning March 31, 2017 in Signature Rehabilitation Center, Norfolk, VA. She was born on June 13, 1930 in Vance County, North Carolina. Lucy attended public school in Vance County, NC. She was a member of Agape Full Gospel Faith and Deliverance Center. She worked in the Norfolk Public School System and Sentara Health Care Facilities in Chesapeake and Virginia Beach, VA. She served as a member of the Order of Eastern Star. She was a dedicated servant to anyone in need and opened her heart and home to those that needed a place to live. She is predeceased by her parents, Arthur E. and Josephine F. Turner; her sons, Ronald L. Turner and Anthony Jefferson and 7 brothers and 3 sisters. Her memory will be cherished by her daughters, Priscilla Kitchens (Anthony) of Palmetto, GA, Vanessa J. Parker(William) of Norfolk, VA, step-daughter Sylvia Jefferson-Bennett of W. Haven, CT and God-daughter Mattie Harris of Charlotte NC; her sons, Raymond J. Turner ( Sherri) of Gilbert, AZ, Phillip Turner of Norfolk, VA, Cornelius Jefferson (Joan) of Suffolk, VA, Dwight Jefferson of Lawton, OK, Joe Harris of Norfolk, VA and step-son John Jefferson, Jr. of Bridgeport, CT. Her legacy continues with 28 Grandchildren, Sandy Turner, James Jefferson, Linette Miller, Felicia Hall, Nicole Melvin, Jacquel Nuten, Michelle Turner, Nathan Jefferson, Shakia Jefferson, Dion Turner, Dujuan Jefferson, Lamont Hunt, Pia Ricks, Deshon Jefferson, Rondel Jefferson, Dante Coley, Shantae Coley, Latoya Jefferson, William Parker, Jr., Cornelious Jefferson, Jr., Lashaunt Smith, Desiree’ Jefferson, Nyimah Payne and Campbell Turner; 51 Great Grandchildren, 20 Great Great Grandchildren; her sisters, Fannie Pine and Maggie Turner of Stafford, VA, Pauline Majette of Franklin, VA. and Lillian Mason of Norfolk, VA; her brothers, Joseph Turner (Margaret) of Pikesville, MD; Nathaniel Turner and Robert Turner (Marion) both of Franklin, VA; an aunt, Alice Henderson of Manson, NC; sister-in-laws Victoria Turner of Norfolk, VA and Cora C. Plummer of Center Moriches, NY; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. The death of one whom we have loved is a cause for grief and sorrow, and it is fitting that we show this pain. It is also a challenge of our faith, hope and love. This moment calls upon us to renew our faith in God and to express our hope in the promise of eternal life in Him. Expressing our faith leads us to this hope in the power and goodness of God. This is also a time to speak of our love of God and one another. With such spiritual reserve, we can console each other in a meaningful Christian way. Strengthened by these virtues, we are even more grateful for a mother who took the time to carefully plant the seeds of love and respect for God, mankind and country.

Linda To the Family. Losing a love one in death is a trying time for all. I just want to give the family some comfort and hope from God's word, which gives the assurance that one day we will see our dear love ones again. ACTS 24:15 And I have a hope toward God, which hope these(men) themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteuos and the unrighteous. Certainly while we await for these wonderful promise, I hope the family truly find comfort knowing this wonderful hope from Gods word.

Nikki I'm truly sorry for the loss of your loved one. Isaiah 25:8 assures us that God(Psalm 83:18)will wipe your tears and swallow up death forever. No more crying, Revelation 21:4. He promises to reunite us with our loved ones, Acts 24:15. May these promises help you cope.
