I would use sky blue maybe with a mix of teal, but mainly sky blue (not too much though).

Turquoise, also known as aquamarine, is a blend of the colors blue and green. It comes in many shades, ranging from soft, pale colors to vibrant, intense colors. The color span starts as a light greenish-blue, aquamarine, and ranges through to a bluish-green, turquoise.

Americolor makes a turquoise. I just used it recently and it turned out really nice.

In the Wilton yearbook they suggest- leaf green and sky blue.

Thanks for the suggestions. My wife's grandmother passed on Wednesday, and I told my wife I'd do the cake for the reception. Nana's favorite color was blue, with a heavy leaning towards turquoise.
