To Thelma’s family….we are sorry for your loss. She will be missed in the community as well as in your family. Sending love to you all.
Thelma was such a beautiful soul. Her gentle sense of humor, her great store of knowledge and life experiences and her kindness will never be forgotten. I was so grateful for the times we ventured off into “the great wilderness” for adventures and trips to one medical facility or the other. The highlights of our trips was always lunch and what new places we could try. She had a wonderful way of enriching the lives of everyone fortunate to come in contact with her. Her mind was always so quick to see the humor in any situation and she was ever ready to laugh. Thelma loved her kids and her family and their histories. We passed many miles telling stories and solving the world’s problems. Although her health wasn’t always the best, she bore it bravely and did what she was still able to do with joy and creativity. She was a blessing in all our lives and her passing leaves us all poorer. She will be missed.
So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She will be missed.
I was blessed that in becoming friends with Jill, getting to meet and get to know Thelma was a beautiful gift ever appreciated. We had many good visits especially sitting around Jill’s table in the store. My happiest memories was watching how the two of them especially at hallowe’en would make the effort to dress up and entertain the kids of our community. She was a wealth of stories and we shared interests in common. She was a kind, caring, gentle soul. I’m grateful she was able to go so peacefully with her family by her side. Holding you all close, Yvette and Mike MacLachlan
Yes Thelma will be missed by all that knew her. I remember the variety store in Woodstock Lloyd and Thelma had.
Thelma Will always be remembered by me as she. Was a good cook and enjoyed a laugh. Myrna Tolley
I remember my Aunt Thelma as a happy person who considered life an adventure. We have many good memories of family times with our cousins. The Victoria Day picnic was always special. Grandma, Aunt Thelma and my mom packed a wonderful picnic lunch for Southside Park following the traditional parade. I know she will be missed by many who enjoyed her company.
