Carolyn Turkington

Carolyn Turkington came to Homer, Alaska in 1949 with her new husband, Bob. They brought a saw mill with them, so they immediately found work helping to build “Hill Top Hideaway” lodge, houses, and roads. They eventually got involved in transportation, by running a taxi business, and then operating a school bus business for eighteen years. For more about Carolyn Turkington, see her obituary in the Homer News newspaper.
