Probably a Blackett; if she were a Turner, she'd have to be much younger, or much older, than Mrs. Blackett & Capt. Flint otherwise she would have likely been part of the expedition to the Matterhorn. Similarly, any other Amazon aunts and uncles would likely be Blacketts.

Moving up a level to Great Aunts, there's a much broader set of possibilities, though I doubt that even there the Turner population was very large. If it had been, an orphaned (conjectural, but indicated) Molly & Jim Turner would have likely have been placed in guardianship of a married relative rather than a spinster. Of course if Molly & Jim Turner's parents were the only married couple among both their families that argument loses some merit (but suggests that all other parental siblings were male).
