Kenlee was born on Aug. 2, 1998 in Paradise, Calif. During labor and delivery she suffered a traumatic brain injury. Against medical advice she was taken home to be cared for by her parents. Kenlee's life expectancy was only days but her resilience to thrive, fight for her life and exceptional care gave her the opportunity to minister and change lives in an unforgettable manor. Kenlee lived an inspirational life and touched many hearts by her amazing spirit. She grew up in a loving home with both of her parents and was awed by the presence of her brothers and sister. Kenlee was so loved as her family and nurses state, "it was an honor and a privilege to care for her". She will be missed dearly.

Kenlee is survived by her parents: Ken and Tara Turner of Sidney; siblings: Brandon Turner age 24 of Calif., Devany Turner age 14 and Dion Turner age 9 both of Sidney; her grandfather: Terry McGahan of Sidney; her grandmother: Kathleen Powell of Paradise, Calif. and many extended family members, caregivers and friends.
