Lloyd Turner Passes After Brief Illness

Lloyd Turner, 52, Nezperce, among the most extensive farmers of central Idaho, died at the Cottonwood hospital at 12:40 a.m. today and his body was brought to Lewiston and taken to the Vassar-Rawls funeral home.

Mr. Turner was taken ill July 4 and a few days later underwent an operation for ulcers of the stomach. He was believed recovering when pneumonia set in.

Before locating four miles southeast of Nezperce, he farmed in the Grangeville area. He and his brother, Fred Turner, who died three years ago, at one time farmed approximately 3,000 acres in Lewis county, crops ranging from 60,000 to more than 90,000 bushels annually.

Survivors include his brothers, John Turner, San Francisco, David Turner, Klamath Falls, Ore., Arthur Turner, Taft, Calif., and two sisters in the midwest. He was a member of the Lewiston lodge of Elks.
