Virginia Turnbull

May 9, 1945 — June 16, 2022

Former Shreveport resident Virginia Carroll Turnbull, 77, passed away peacefully on June 16th, 2022 at Westminster Oaks in Tallahassee, Florida.

Virginia, the daughter of Angie and Charles B. (Ted) Carroll, graduated from C.E. Byrd High School in 1963 and attended Louisiana State University. Virginia and her husband raised their two children in Little Rock, Arkansas where she was an active member of her church community. Virginia loved children and ran a day care for many years and enjoyed keeping in touch with those children as they grew into adults. After living in Little Rock until 2010, Virginia relocated to Alexandria, Virginia when her first grandchild was born. Her son, Andrew Turnbull, and his wife, Sherwood Harney Turnbull, still reside in Alexandria, VA with their two children, Dane-12 and Hadley- 10. The grandkids were the biggest joy to Virginia. Fortunately she was able to recently visit with them in person during their Spring Break and FaceTime with them often during her final days. Virginia lived with Andrew and Sherwood until 2019 when her health began to fail. At that time she moved to Tallahassee, FL where she resided in an assisted living facility close to her daughter, Heather Turnbull. Family was the most important thing to Virginia, followed closely by her beloved LSU Tigers. Although her health did not allow her to participate in social media, she loved receiving extended McCartney-Massey and Carroll family updates through her sister, Alice Carroll. Virginia also took great pride in having a front row seat to watch her children and grandchildren’s accomplishments that were achieved in large part thanks to the foundation, love and guidance she provided.

Virginia is survived by her sister Alice Carroll Lax of Baton Rouge, LA and children Heather Turnbull of Tallahassee, FL and Andrew Turnbull and his family of Alexandria, VA.

Funeral service will be held at 10:00am on Sept 3, 2022 at Resthaven Gardens of Memory, 11817 Jefferson Highway, Baton Rouge, LA 70816. Virginia will be laid to rest next to her husband, Robert G. Turnbull deceased 2004.
