She taught school at West Bainbridge, Pine Bloom, and Leary, Ga.. She and her high school sweetheart, Dewey Clevie ‘Doc’ Turner, were married 66 years when he died in 2007.  After they wed in 1941, they operated a ‘rolling grocery store’ for Settles Bros. in Leary, Ga. and farmed. Clevie, was deployed to Cairo, Egypt in WW II as a medic in the Army in the African-Middle East theatre. Agnes and their child, Marsha Ann, moved to Camp Blanding, Fla., where Agnes worked on the ‘Home Front’ in the alterations of military clothing at her in-laws’ laundry. Clevie returned in 1946; they made their new home in Green Cove Springs and for the next 33 years owned and operated the Liberty Red & White IGA Grocery.
