Shirley’s Angel
Written by Chandra L. Mattingly

For decades a wing and a head of an angel lay in Shirley Meyer's keeping.

Broken from a small marble monument for Cecil Peters, who died before her third birthday, the pieces were spirited away from Meyer's Aurora home in July by Ben and Nancy Turner. Then the Aurora couple snatched the angel's blackened body from River View Cemetery as well, said Nancy Turner.

All the pieces were delivered into the care of the Turners' son Matthew Turner, a lead fabricator at Acsent, Cincinnati. Turner then cleaned and restored the little angel, using white concrete over epoxy as he attached the head and wing.

The concrete will age with the marble, he explained.
