Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Sally McQuie, age 67,

Sally McQuie, age 67, of North Little Rock passed away on June 7, 2021.  She was born in St. Louis, MO, to Jim and Sue McQuie.  She grew up in St. Louis until she enlisted in the Air Force.

Sally earned a Bachelor Degree in Business Management and a Masters in Psychology.  She was a Russian linguist in the Air Force, a claims adjustor for USAA, and a psychology instructor at two junior colleges in Huntsville, AL.  She also volunteered as a counselor at a shelter for victims of domestic abuse and as a counselor at a food bank in Huntsville.  In North Little Rock she volunteered at the Hayes Senior Center teaching weight training.

She was particularly fond of ping-pong and racquetball, and often drew backhanded compliments from her adversaries like “getting whooped by a little girl.”  She also enjoyed reading, swimming, and playing with her cats and dogs.

She was preceded in death by her parents.  She is survived by siblings Colleen McLaughlin, Jim McQuie Jr, Julie Onesty, Kelly (Mark) Canterna; her husband Bert Turner; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

A private family service will be held.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Arkansas Food Bank or a charity of your choice.

Arrangements are under the trusted direction of A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas 72076. 501-982-3400. Sally’s online guestbook is available at

    Only knew Sally for a short time 50 years ago. I’m not surprised to see the many things in which she was involved.

    Sally was one the most intelligent people I ever met from Kirkwood. She was a delight to be around. My condolences to the family.

    Met Sally back in the late 70s when she & Bert were stationed in Okinawa. She was such a warm friendly person who loved life. Prayers & peace to Bert & the family

    Sally was a great friend and neighbor. We enjoyed many great conversations when I lived across the street. I hope she has found her peace.

    I knew Sally from High School and I am very sad to find that she is no longer with us .She was my first true love in the 70’s. Sally was most certainly a beautiful person that I regret not knowing after high school.
    All my love to her siblings.
