Alice Farah Turk

December 14, 1925 - November 11, 2008


Alice Farah Turk passed away peacefully in her home on November 11, 2008.

Alice was born December 14, 1925 to Semaan and Shafiqa Farah, the only girl of seven children. She lost her mother at a very young age but she overcame all odds and excelled in her studies and continued to be a teacher of English and Mathematics. She married her husband Anton Salim Turk, then, shortly after marriage, accompanied him to Tripoli, Libya. They settled there and raised three sons together, Salim, Shukri and Hazem. Later, she moved on to work in the diplomatic field where she was a secretary to the ambassador and a translator in different embassies. Her husband passed away unexpectedly at a fairly young age. His early death affected her very deeply but due to her strong faith and belief, she continued on raising her sons the best way she could. She immigrated to the United States in 1980 where her sons continued their higher education studies. Her sons always stayed close to her and gave her all the love and care she needed till her last days.

Alice was a loving wife, caring mother, beloved grandmother and a dear friend to many. Her loving attitude and affection made her loved by everyone who knew her. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

    My condolences to Hazem and all his brothers for the passing away of their dear beloved mum who acted for them as a mother and father at the same time, savoring them since they were young and providing the best for them through her hard work and dedication. I will remeber her pleasant character and sharp wit and ask God to give her all the Blessings and a seat in Heaven.

  3. Dear Turk Family,

    I extend my condolances to you all on the departure of your beloved mother Ms.Alice Farah Turk. She was a great person & an outstanding mother too…My friend Hazem is an example of her beautiful personality & charm. I had the chance to meet & talk to her for two times. She struck me then as a person of noble quality & high moral standards…She’ll be deeply missed, but her accomplishments always will remain.
    Her place is in paradise…May god bless her soul.
