Florence DeBonis Turek, a resident of McCloud, California, passed away at her home on October 4, 2015, at the age of 92.
Florence was born in Vallejo, California on November 20, 1922 to Gaetano and Antonia DeBonis. Florence and her brother George owned and operated a retail clothing store for 27 years in Vallejo, and in 2002 she moved to McCloud to spend her golden years closer to nature. She was a member of the Sons of Italy in both Vallejo and Weed, and spent many joyful hours playing bingo, cooking, baking, shopping, giving great advice, and bringing laughter and smiles to her family and friends. She will be especially remembered for her sharp memory, determined spirit, and generous nature. With her passing the world has truly lost a beautiful, loving and noble heart.
Florence is survived by her husband of 59 years, Maury Turek of McCloud, CA; son, Ray Angle (wife, Susan) of McCloud, CA; daughter, Toni Angle (husband, Dave) of Auburn, CA; brother George DeBonis (wife, Muriel) of Vallejo, CA; grandchildren Zakary Angle of McCloud, CA and Gretchen Del Rosario (husband, Joe) of Vallejo, CA; great-grandchildren, Sam and Sophia Del Rosario of Vallejo, CA; and her numerous and beloved nieces and nephews.
The family would also like to thank Mercy Hospice Mount Shasta for their gracious and compassionate services, and Mount Shasta Memorial Chapel for their professional assistance.
Florence will be laid to rest at All Souls Cememtary in Vallejo, California, and private services will be held for the family.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Mercy Hospice Mount Shasta, 914 Pine Street, Mt. Shasta, CA 96067.
