Thelma was a member of Minco First Baptist Church where she was a Sunday School teacher. She enjoyed being involved in the activities of her children during their school years. She was the best wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend anyone could ask for. She had a fabulous smile and a sweet and gentle spirit. She created a happy home for her family and friends to enjoy through the years. She always greeted friends and family with "Hello, how are you?" She made everyone feel welcome with cookies, candy or a good home cooked meal. She is a hard act to follow, for she loved with all her heart and gave of herself so freely. "For who can find a more virtuous woman - her price, far above rubies." That was our precious mothernever to be forgotten.
