Erin Lindsey (Waldron) Turner

August 6, 1978 ~ June 7, 2022 (age 43)


Born at Alexandria Hospital on Sunday, August 6th 1978 at 11:26 AM.

Erin attended George Mason Elementary School, George Washington Middle School, and Graduated from T.C. Williams High School in 1996. She received her Associates Degree from Northern Virginia Community College and transferred to Virginia Commonwealth University.

After attending VCU, she went on to become a Teacher's Assistant for 18 years in the Alexandria City Public School System at John Adams Elementary School.

In 1988, Erin was diagnosed with CML Leukemia and underwent a Bone Marrow Transplant in 1989. She suffered from multiple illnesses following her transplant. Over the next 32 years, she endured a Hysterectomy, had her Gallbladder removed, Thyroid Cancer, and finally had to have her entire Colon removed due to cancerous tumors.

Erin is survived by her husband Kevin Turner, her mom and dad Martha and William Waldron, her brother John Waldron, and her niece Addison Waldron.

Erin had many Talents and Hobbies. She enjoyed Baking and Cooking, and all kinds of Craft Making such as making jewelry and Christmas ornaments, and Crocheting and Cross Stitching. She would put her whole self into everything that she undertook, most of which seemed bigger than her, but that would not deter her.

One of the Best and Strongest parts of her Body was her Loving and Beautiful Heart! The One and almost Only thing that she did not Lose due to the illness, even on her worst health days.

Erin passed away peacefully at her parents home on the night of Tuesday the 7th of June 2022 around 9:45 PM. She was sitting in one of her favorite chairs with her husband Kevin, and her mom Martha, in the room with her.
