Always a loving and caring mother, Thelma was a talented seamstress, devoted homemaker and enjoyed working alongside her husband in the business aspect of their endeavors. Following her husband's retirement, they enjoyed traveling and moved to Port Orange, Florida, where they made their home for the past 32 years.
Thelma was a very faithful child of God and was actively involved with the Catholic Church of the Epiphany where she served as a Eucharistic minister. Like her husband, she enjoyed her family and was never happier than when she was amongst her children, grandchildren and great-grandsons. She will be greatly missed.
