Clorinda Amelia "Sis" Turri Covert, 76, of Paducah, died Monday at 5:25pm at Lourdes Hospital.
Clorinda was born in Detroit, Michigan on January 2, 1939 to the late Anthony and Angeline Calcaterra Turri. She attended Cosmetology School and worked in the family business, Turri Italian Foods, until moving to Paducah with her husband, Jim Covert. She worked in the meat department for Boyd's, Gores, and Wal-Mart Meat Departments. She attended both St. John's Catholic Church and St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church and was very active in the parish.
Clorinda lived to serve her family and their interests became hers. She loved her children and grandchildren, tutoring them all in math as they needed help. She was a homemaker who realized the value of providing a loving environment for her family.

She was preceded in death by her son, Jim Covert; brothers, Frank Turri and Bernie Turri; and her parents.
