Today is a sad day for us. The body of late Edith Turnquest, 80 years, returns home today.

Bahamas Press can confirm the entire family is now en-route to the capital from London at this hour.

This week until the time of her burial BP will conduct a period of NATIONAL MOURNING for a GREAT LADY, A LOVING MOTHER AND A TRUE FRIEND! MAY SHE REST IN PEACE………


  1. Be comforted in knowing that as you go through this tough time, you are not alone. Our prayers and thoughts are with you, but above all the Lord walks with you, he will never leave your side, even though you may feel that you cannot deal with her passing or even accept it, trust me, God will bring you through!

  2. Am still shocked at this sudden passing.Lady Turnquest was the perfect complement for Sir Orville and my fondest memory was seeing the two of them together always like love birds,.Lady T soft spoken was like ajoy to speak to as she was very self confident.Am going into hibernation for awhile as her death has shown that we never know for whom the bell tolls.I feel so sorry for the family especially Sir Orville and pray that the Christian Council visits and try to give consell.May she rest in peace.

  3. Such a beautiful, beautiful, person. She was like a rose always looking so pretty. You would never believe she was an eighty years old woman, she aged so gracefully . My fondest memory is the time she mention something about the length of a skirt I was wearing, you could say, it was sort of short. I knew she was just teasing me, so I just laughed. She was such a down to earth kind of person.

  4. These are the times of great reflection for us. We invite you to share your fond memories with this wonderful Lady and offer your condolences to the entire Turnquest family.

    On behalf of the entire team here at Bahamas Press we offer our sincere condolences to Sir Orville Turnquest and all the children as we all mourn the passing of this wonderful LADY!

    Lady Edith Turnquest 1930 – 2010
    May She Rest in Peace…..
