Jacquelyn Marie Bassett Hardy Turner, age 78, died peacefully at her home in Hinckley, Utah on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 from complications associated with Lupus. Jacquie was born in the home of her Petersen grandparents in Hinckley, Utah on June 23, 1940. Her parents Ralph Henry “Bud” and Beulah Marie Petersen Bassett were thrilled to welcome the first of four children into their hearts and home.
Jacquie grew up on the family farm in Sutherland, Utah. As a toddler, she rode on the back of the work horses as her dad railed the brush and leveled the “north forty”. Jacquie attended Delta public schools, graduating from Delta High in 1958. She was popular among her classmates and enjoyed many lifelong friendships from her school days.
Jacquie married Carl Judd Hardy from Hinckley, Utah on April 9, 1958. They lived in Hinckley, Sutherland, Delta, Deseret, Cedar City, St. George, and Murray before moving to Kent, Washington in 1983. Judd passed away on July 1, 1991. Shortly after Judd’s death, Jacquie returned to Utah, where she again lived in Murray, Sutherland, and Hinckley.
On February 11, 1995, Jacquie married Douglas Fred Turner of Sutherland, Utah. Jacquie and Doug made frequent trips to Salt Lake City and Seattle to visit her children and grandchildren. Jacquie grew to love Doug’s five children and enjoyed many happy times with the Turner grandchildren and great grandchildren, as well as the extended Turner family.
Jacquie spent many years working as a secretary, first at Viewmont Elementary in Murray, later at Brush Wellman in Delta, at Kentwood High School in Kent, and finally in the accounting offices of Todd Holt in Delta. She was happiest when with family and friends, always greeting everyone with a friendly smile and helpful hand. Jacquie was loved and admired by all who knew her.
