Carole Lee (Guinn) Turville passed away on December 15, 2023, at the age of 84. She was born in Bigfork, MN on May 30, 1939, to Sophie and Pete Guinn. She attended the University of Minnesota at Duluth before deciding she wanted to see more of the world. She was headed to the west coast but promised her mom that she would stop and visit her aunt in Great Falls. While there, her cousin introduced her to his friend, William "Bill" Turville on New Year's Eve 1959, and they were married April 29, 1960, at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Great Falls.

She worked various clerical and retail jobs throughout the years, but she was most proud of getting her boiler's license in 1990 and being the custodian at Our Savior's Lutheran Church for the next 15 plus years. Her first priority was her family. She served as PTA President and Camp Fire Girls leader for many years. She did not miss a school or sporting event that her children or grandchildren were involved in. She enjoyed genealogy and had traced both her and Bill’s family trees back several generations.

Carole is survived by her daughter, Lynne Turville of Sidney, MT; sons, Lyle (Wendy) Turville of Great Falls, MT, Lee (Mary Solberg) Turville of Williston, ND, and Larry Turville of Missoula, MT; sister, Candy (Bruce) Blackmer of Spokane, WA; grandchildren, Kelly Amato, Lance Amato, Marissa Amato, Alyssa Amato, William "Tanner" Turville, William "Dane" Turville, Melissa Kapperud, Kayla Turville, Anthony Turville, Sam Turville, Mykle Turville, Jessalynne Turville, Jonathan Wondrusch, Alex Jodzko, and William "Hadley" Turville; and great- grandchildren, Zaine, Jaqlynne, Abbie, Brantlee, Huck, Nash, Madison, Kash, and Karlee. She was preceded in death by her parents, Pete and Sophie Guinn; husband, William “Bill” Turville; brother, Steven Guinn; and twin grandsons, Colton and Nicholas Turville.

Service details will be announced at a later date on the Schnider Funeral Home website.
