Veronica Sharee (Butts) Turner was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa to Frank Butts and LeeSarah (Alexander) Glenn. She was one of twelve children. For a short time, the family resided in Davenport where she attended and graduated Davenport Central High School .
“Big V” is what everyone called her and knew her as. She loved her Lord and she was a member of Church of Christ. Coming from a big family, she of course, enjoyed family gatherings and just simply “being” with family and her friends.
In her spare moments she found joy in entertaining and pleasing others, she could cook and made the best pork chops. She also liked watching western shows, watching Criminal Minds, playing cards, listening to “Old School” R&B and loved singing.
Veronica passed away after a continuously, long fight, with many illnesses, on March 4, 2017 at the age of 61. Those who waited to greet her in Heaven, was her daughter, LaTonya “Tweety” Edwards; granddaughter, Konya Marie Wright; her parents; siblings, Marcheta Claytor, Norma Houston, Konya Lovelady, Diane Lovelady and Charles Turner; nephews, Stevie Houston, Charles and Lamont T. Lovelady.
She is survived and will be missed by her children, Jasmin and Kavanaugh Wright and Darrell and Lewis Jr.; grandchildren, LuSarah Edwards, Helena Allen, Kitana Lewis, Jonathan Edwards, TaeJuan Lewis, Martell Lewis, Alicia Lewis, Klimora and Kimiah Wright; great-grandson, Caius Allen; siblings, Sheryl Kay, Sheryl Mae, Harold Lovelady, Lamont and Tony Charlesetta; lifelong companion, Clarence Cavil; along with a host of extended family and friends.
