Tribute


Rosalie Marino Turley passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 23, 2022 in Metairie, Louisiana at the age of 78 years. Loving mother of Anthony Turley, Jr. (Lisa) and the late Kevin Turley. Cherished grandmother of Rachel and Caroline.  Also survived by a nephew and five nieces.  She was preceded in death by her former husband, Anthony Turley; her parents, Michael Joseph Marino and Catherine Dorothy Scavruzzo and her siblings, Joseph Michael Marino and Linda Marino Amato.
As known by many, “Gail” never met a stranger. She had a gift for making others feel loved and welcomed. With a view of the glass half-full, she was light-hearted, always found the best in others, loved to laugh and talk especially, when it was about Drew Brees and the Saints. She started her career as a hairdresser at Venus Beauty Salon and although she held many different job roles in-between, she continued to cut and style hair until her early 70’s for friends and family. Born in New Orleans, she had a true love for the city of New Orleans, serving as a New Orleans tour guide for many years.
Most notably, she continuously encouraged others to trust in the Lord. She loved telling others about their Guardian Angels, and she would not go anywhere without her guardian angel pin on her blouse. Gail was a long-time parishioner of St. Edward the Confessor parish starting in the mid 70’s. In her younger years, she was heavily involved in CYO and volunteered her time as a substitute homeroom moderator, which led to exciting stories of how the older children knew when Gail was there it was party-time with “no-rules applied.” Gail was a model of someone who truly embraced the unknown without fear by trusting in the Lord’s Plan. She made many life-long friends through the St. Jude Society at St. Mary Magdalen Church, Cleary Playground, St. Edward the Confessor, Whitney Place, Metairie Manor, and by participating in one of her favorite feast days by volunteering at St. Joseph Day Altars around the city.
