Samuele and Maria Turri
In 1912 Samuele Turri and six of his friends, Amos, Angelo and Pietro Guidi, Cesare Bertucci, Michele Rossi and Carlo Cavani, steamed into Kelowna aboard the paddle wheeler, the SS Okanagan. By 1916 he had met and married Maria Dapavo. They had five children: Olinto, Hazel, Katie, Caesar and Beatrice. After several unrelated jobs he began work with the City of Kelowna in 1918 and stayed with them until his retirement in 1959.
