WATCH LIVE FUNERAL STREAM HERE (11:00 AM)

Wendy Christiansen Turley, 66, after struggling with a three week-long battle of COVID, ended her valiant fight on December 7, 2021. She was born on January 21, 1955, to Garth Cook Christiansen and Dora Mower Christiansen in Salt Lake City, Utah. Wendy grew up in Pleasant Grove, Utah. She attended and was a member of the drill team at Pleasant Grove High School and Snow College.

Wendy had a zest for life, especially the Gospel. She was a valiant member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had a strong relationship with her Savior, Jesus Christ, and her Heavenly Father. She valued her faith more than anything. She served faithfully her whole adult life in the Young Women program, Relief Society, and LOVED teaching the young primary children about the Gospel.

Wendy is survived by her husband, Marion Devon Turley; children: Emily (Loren) Bernal, Brandon (Joyelle) Turley, and Andrea Hadley; siblings: Gail (Elaine) Christiansen, Pete (Sherie) Christiansen, and Barbara Long; brothers-in-law: Les Haley and Earl Colyer; sister-in-law: Jeanann Christiansen; grandchildren: Adisson (Adam) Seegmiller, Koleman Hadley, Jackson Turley, Maddux Turley, Kapri Turley, McKay Bernal, Mia Bernal, Olivia Bernal, Emma Bernal, Savannah Bernal, Ellie Bernal, Kennedi Bernal, and Sofie Bernal; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Garth and Dora Christiansen; son, McKay Devon Turley; siblings: Garth (Chris) Christiansen, Edna Haley, and Jolyn Colyer; sister-in-law, Echo Christiansen; and brother-in-law, Richard Long.

The pride and joy of Wendy’s life was her family. Her loving husband and eternal companion, Marion, is her best friend. They loved to travel all over watching their grandkids play sports, dance, ect. As a couple, they were always looking to find ways to serve all around them. Ministering to any and everyone that needed a meal, a helping hand, a visit, or just some friends. Her main purpose in life was being a mother, wife, and especially a grandmother. She never missed one performance, ball game, or anything that her 13 grandkids, or 3 kids were a part of.

She has touched countless lives with her loving nature, service, countenance, and Christ-like love. She will be missed by many.

The family would like to thank neighbors, ward members, friends, family, and everyone for the meals, love, thoughts, support and especially faith and prayers that has been shown throughout this time.
