- She died in her sleep after her lungs filled with fluid
A woman has died suddenly in her sleep in Bali after suffering from flu-like symptoms.
Geelong mother Lindy Joy Turner was staying on the Indonesian tourist hotspot when it’s understood she died some time this week.
Her family has set up an online fundraiser to raise money for her funeral costs.
‘Sadly we would like to announce the passing of Mick‘s beautiful wife of 39 years Lindy Joy Turner,’ reads the GoFundMe campaign description.
‘Lindy passed away in her sleep here in Bali. The reasons are still hazy but she was struggling with a huge cold and breathing difficulties.
‘Her lungs were full of fluid and her body just could not cope.’
Mr Turner was the ‘wife of Michael, mother and mother-in-law of Marlee and Mark, Shaun and Bec and devoted nanny of Kobe and Seth,’ according to the GoFundMe page.
‘Thanking you all in advance for your love and support to assist with our beautiful friends farewell.’
The campaign organiser is listed as Michael Turner, Lindy’s husband, although it appears the campaign information was written by someone else.
The campaign has raised $7440 of its $15,000 target as of Saturday.
Ms Turner’s death is the latest in a series of Australians who have died in the Indonesian resort.
