Roz Turnbull Memorial Contributions

It is with deepest sympathies we share the news of the passing of Roz Turnbull. She will be greatly missed. Her passion was her family, ranching and the ranching traditions and families of our area. The rodeo was a favorite activity and she cherished watching her son Mat, and grandson Bruce rope. Her grandson Mac as a youngster was a fixture in the calf scramble and he now enjoys visiting with the spectators while helping the 4-H youth sell popcorn or helping the contestants behind the chutes. Roz cheered everyone on encouraging them to do their best.

We miss you all and have been planning all winter and spring for a fantastic 2020 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Season. However, we want to practice caution and insure that all are safe when we gather together again. We will rodeo when the Town of Carbondale allows use of the Gus Darien Arena and for people to gather together in groups.
