Rest in Peace, Becky Turner

Becky S. Turner
1954 - 2011
We are deeply saddened to report that Becky Turner passed away today in her sleep.  Becky had planned to attend this year's HLCCA conference in Pittsburgh, PA, but was admitted to the hospital at Vanderbilt University early last week.  Becky was a long-time member of HLCCA, where she served on the Board and was Treasurer until the early 2000s.  Becky was a knowledgeable and generous collector, with a particular passion for Harlequin dinnerware.  Becky had struggled with serious health issues for the past few years, but had recently completed a trip to France, and had attended her daughter Tori's graduation and her daughter Abbey's wedding.  She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
