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.
