Obituary for Leslie Lee Turnage

Praise the Lord, Leslie Lee (Bettencourt) Turnage, 62 was welcomed through the gates of Heaven on December 16th, 2018 after her short fight with cancer. She was surrounded by her loving family and favorite music.

Born in Chicago, IL on July 24, 1956, she was the daughter of Leroy Bettencourt and Mildred Zientarski (Bettencourt)(Bittle). Both parents preceded her in death.

In 1976, she left city life behind and moved to Hot Springs Village, AR, where she met her husband of 38 years, Scott Turnage. They have two heartbroken daughters, Samantha Nuckolls (Trent) and Elizabeth Rhodes (Darby).

Leslie worked along Hwy 7 for some 42 years but was best known from Bennett Brothers Stone. Les enjoyed keeping to herself, listening to music, reading, writing (she was fantastic) and spending time with her family. When she really wanted to treat herself, she would travel to the casino, Disney World or Chicago to visit with her five beloved siblings; Mike, Brian, and Brad Bettencourt, Stacey Frasca (Marc), and Johnny Bittle (Patti) all of Chicago, IL.

Leslie will forever be remembered as a loving, thoughtful, unique, strong willed, altruistic woman. You could always catch her with a smile on her face as she cranked up the radio to dance. Her five grandchildren; Darian, Logan, Addison, Alex, and Destin will miss their Busha!

Celebration of her life will be 11:00 am, Saturday, January 5, 2019 at Caruth Village Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial donations to a charity of your choice, as she enjoyed generously contributing to many charities.
