Louise Turner

Loise Kreher Turner is a untiring octogenarian who has reinvented herself every ten years over her long, productive career. Over the years, by the acquisition of degrees, she transformed herself into city recreation director, playground director, teen center director, and teacher of grades four through high school. Also, from the age of three, she was a student of dance, which led to more than 30 years as an instructor of dance at the univ ersity level. Her diverse vocations only tentatively culminated with retirement from Auburn University in 1975 as Assocciate Professor Emerita. As a senior citizen she has pursued four distinct avocations in as many decades. With great enjoyment and success she managed and repaired real estate in Mid-City and the Vieux Carre of New Orleans in the 1970s. In the 1980s, she transported and restored a 19th-Century home outside of Auburn. In the 1990s she created and endowed a 110-acre nature center, the Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve of the School of Forestry an Wildlife Science of Auburn University. She is most proud of creating trails and developing the physical aspects of the preserve. Now, in the 2000s, with the creation of Margaretha’s Trunk, she has discovered the rewards of authorship.
