Andrea J. Turner, age 32 of Chesterton, passed away Monday. October 17, 2011 in Chesterton.

Annie was born March 4, 1979 in Valparaiso, Ind., to Robert Ronco who preceded her in death and Patsy Mounce Griffith who survives in West Paducah, Kentucky with Annie’s step father Evert “Wayne” Griffith.

Annie is survived by her three children Alyssa Ronco, Joshua Ronco and Seth Turner, all of Chesterton.

Annie worked for Dr. Aalaei in Merrillville in the billing department of Advanced Pain Management. She enjoyed furthering her education, spending time with her children, going on bike rides or doing crafts, whatever their pleasure was.

Photography was her love, she would stand outside in a storm to get the perfect picture of lightning. Sketching was another hobby. Annie was out-going, friendly and didn’t know a stranger.
