Obituary for Sylvia Marie Lemon
Sylvia Marie Lemon, age 90, of Merrill, died on Wednesday, July 25, 2018. She was born on July 18, 1928, to the late Alfred and Grace (Londerville) Turner.

Sylvia attended the former Holy Cross High School, Merrill, and graduated from Lincoln County Normal School. On June 15, 1948, she was married to Floyd Lemon of Houston, Texas. For three years they lived in Houston before moving back to Merrill.

Sylvia worked for 28 years in Special Education at Washington School in Merrill. After she retired at age 65 she then did substitute teaching for another 10 years. Sylvia loved being a substitute teacher.

With a daughter (Marilyn) working for Delta Airlines, Floyd and Sylvia traveled all over the United States, Alaska, and Hawaii many times. They also went to England, Spain, Africa, and the Bahamas as Floyd won these trips for outstanding sales working for WPS Insurance.

The times Sylvia enjoyed the most were family get-togethers for holidays. Cooking for large groups was her specialty. Everyone especially enjoyed her famous potato salad.

Sylvia was preceded in death by her husband; parents; three brothers, Eugene, David, and Alfred Turner, Jr.; a daughter, Marilyn Lemon; and a grandson, Mitchell Lemon. She is survived by her children, Jean (Lonnie) Balthazor, Dale (Lynne) Lemon, Sue (Scott) Williams, David Lemon, Daniel (Debi) Lemon, and Amy (Mike) Stiver. She is also survived by 14 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; her brother, John (Lorraine) Turner; and sister in law, Cleone Turner.
