Obituary of Tangela Marie Turner

First Lady Tangela Marie (Sharp) Turner, 43, of Niles, transitioned from labor to reward on Saturday, May 16, 2020, surrounded by her family. Tangela was born in Benton Harbor, Michigan, on July 14, 1976. She is a proud graduate of the Benton Harbor High School Class of 1994. On October 18, 1997, Tangela married the love of her life, Pastor Jorell Turner Sr. They happily raised their three children, Naomi, Kyran, and Jorell Jr. Tangela loved traveling with her family as they explored the world together covering many destinations and cruises. Tangela was an active member of Community C.O.G.I.C. in the city of Benton Harbor, MI. before relocating to the city of Niles. Where she and her husband worked faithful at Spiritual Vision C.O.G.I.C. until answering the call of God in April of 2009 in starting Compassionate Heart Ministry located in South Bend, IN. There she not only served as the First Lady, and headed the women’s ministry, but as well she led several outreach events, and was a strong advocate for Sickle Cell Awareness in both the Michigan and Indiana areas until the Lord called her home. First Lady Turner could always be found loving on the babies, offering words of encouragement, ministering to the broken hearted, making others laugh, and made the best of every situation, even when she was not feeling her best. She never allowed her pain or sickness to be a hindrance. She loved God and all people! She is preceded in death by her mother, Frances Sharp; and her brother, Karl Sharp.
