Evelyn Edwards Ludlow Tureski, a onetime member of the Bridgehampton School Board, died on Nov. 4 at home on Chester Avenue in Bridgehampton. The cause was heart failure. Mrs. Tureski, who had been ill for a year, was 94.
A lifetime member of the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church, she served as church secretary, deacon, trustee, and on many committees. She was a member of the school board for more than 10 years.
Mrs. Tureski began her working life as a bookkeeper for the Grange League Federation in Bridgehampton, which carried feeds, seeds, fertilizers, and other farm supplies. She also worked for Hull Chevrolet, and later as the office manager for Mayo Motors and Storms Motors, all in Southampton. She retired at age 78.
She lived all of her 94 years in and around the lanes of Bridgehampton, from the hills to the ocean.
She was born on April 28, 1929, in Southampton to Charles Augustus Ludlow and Annie Jennings Seabury Ludlow. She and Henry Tureski were married on Aug. 7, 1950. He died in 2016.
Mrs. Tureski is survived by her three children, Joy Sieger of Peconic, Marsha Riggs of Sumter, S.C., and Todd Tureski of Southampton, and their spouses. A nephew, Theodore Tureski of Southampton, also survives, as do seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. A sister, Katherine Tureski, died before her.
The family received visitors on Monday at the Brockett Funeral Home in Southampton. A service followed on Tuesday at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Adrian Pratt officiating, with burial at Mecox Cemetery in Bridgehampton.
