Obituary for Gracie Lee Turner

Gracie Lee Turner (Smith), was born in Hartshorne, OK on March 12, 1948. She returned to Denver after retiring from an extensive career with U.S. Department of Defense that spanned over 40 years and saw her travel as far away as Bosnia, Kosovo, Germany and Iraq. In addition to working for the DoD, her civil service career started off as switchboard operator and commissary cashier. While raising three children, she also took classes in cosmetology, auto mechanics and worked hard as a CNA (certified nursing assistant) for many years.

Gracie passed peacefully on January 31, 2018. She was preceded in death by both her parents, Lee T. Smith, Sr. and Ora Frances Smith (Shortridge); step-mother Francis Smith, brother Lee T. Smith, Jr., and sister Barbara Jo Smith-Jenkins.
