Obituary of Henrietta Turner
Henrietta Luciano Turner
Henrietta Luciano Turner, passed away on March 3, 2021. She was born December 13, 1930 in Paterson, NJ to Henry and Tina Dieckman.
Henrietta met her husband Anthony B. Luciano, Sr. at Sam’s Maple Grove. They got married and moved to Boonton where they raised two children.
Henrietta spent over 60 years working for the family business Condurso’s Garden Center as their bookkeeper. Hennie as she was called by those who knew her was the best baker and all of her desserts were welcomed at all the family gatherings, and left everyone wanting more.
She met and married her second husband William Turner after reconnecting at their 50th high school reunion. She enjoyed getting to know and spending family time with Bill’s four children and grandchildren.
Henrietta was a member of St. Pius X Church in Montville, where she proudly served as a Eucharistic minister.
Hennie will be remembered for the kindness and affection she showed to all around her. Her children and grandchildren knew there was never an unmet need or an event in which they participated that she was not in attendance with her infectious smile.
Hennie was predeceased by her first husband Anthony B. Luciano, Sr. and her second husband William Turner; her granddaughter Elyse Arline Luciano and her brother Johnny Dieckman. She is survived by her children Anthony B. Luciano, Jr. and his wife Kim of Montville and Karen Luciano of Newton; her grandchildren Anthony B.

Luciano of Augusta; her sister Tina Marie Grigsby of Monroe, NY; her nephew Dr. Bryon Grigsby and his wife Lea of Bethlehem, PA, and their children Aliza, Pippa and Hal.
