Donna R. McCullough-Turner (Barnard)

June 19, 1947 –
 January 28, 2023


Donna Reba (McCullough-Turner) Barnard, 75, of Grand Prairie, Texas passed away on January 28, 2023, at home surrounded by her family.

Donna was born on June 19, 1947 in Albany, New York, the daughter of the late Robert and Eleanor McCullough. Donna attended and graduated from Albany High School and started her career working for the NYS Department of Education. After realizing that she did not want to be confined to a desk and computer, she chose to pursue a career in retail sales, specializing in custom-made men’s suits and custom Draperies while employed at Sears in Colonie, NY. She retired from Sears after 23 years of service.

Donna was preceded in death by her husband, Eddie Turner Jr., her daughter Kimberly Foulks and her sister Cora (Sissy) Armstrong.

Donna is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Terrell and Donnie Wilson of Grand Prairie, Texas; grandchildren, Darius Jarvis, Azmier Hooten, Khalid Conner, Kaden Conner, and a bonus grandson Eric Dixon Jr., all of Texas. Great-grandchildren A’zhiana Hooten, Amayah Conner, Dior Jarvis and a bonus great-grandson, Zaylen Carr, all of Texas. Her sister, Teri-ann McCullough of Ohio. Nieces, Stacey Medley-Troeger (David), Salisa Lewis Brandon, Shamel Turner, Marlene Palmer all of NY. Nephews, Kevin Lewis of Gastonia, NC, Gerald Lewis of Florida, Jamal McCullough, Robert Turner, and Barry Brooks all of NY. Four sisters-in-law, Shirley Martin, Loretta Turner, Valerie Turner, and Maryann Turner all of NY. Donna also leaves behind her beloved dog, Maryjane of 16 years to cherish her memory as well as a host of cousins, great nieces and nephews and other family and friends.

The family would like to express thanks to Alevcare Hospice and staff of Mansfield and Good Samaritan Home Healthcare of Irving for helping us get through this difficult time.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

    I’m going to miss talking to you and Mary Jane we were always close sisters even though you were my in-laws we were like sisters we did a lot of things together especially the time the Ohio Players made you leave my hospital room, we were inseparable always together. You were a second mother to my son we did so many things together and I’m happy for that. You will always be in my heart and on my mind but it will be nothing but joy because you are now with family again and that’s what we are all about family sleep in peace Sister because joy comes in the morning.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
