Aunt Thelma had a very quiet spirit and she was very humble. She loved to cook and I always loved it when she said, " would you like a piece of cake." Her cakes were the best. Oh and her persimmon pudding was out of this world 🌎 ! Once she said "I have persimmon pudding in the freezer, would you like to take it home with you? " Of course, I couldn't turn that down so off to Ohio I go with persimmon pudding. I keep that persimmon pudding for at least a month. I'd treat myself every so often with a piece of Aunt Thelma's home made persimmon pudding. It was the best. Thank you for being a member of our family. We love you and will miss you dearly.

Keeping you close in Caring Thoughts and Prayers: Though your heart must hold deep sadness at the lost of the one you loved, may it also hold the blessings of the life you shared and the love that will always be a part of you... Praying that God will comfort your heart, uplift your spirit, and carry you through this time of sadness to a place of peace. With Deepest Sympathy. Rev. Howard and Ann.

Cousin Thelma, was always a kind and loving person, she spoke with a soft voice and always with a smile. She never had an unkind word against anyone. She was a true blessing to her family and church family. She was very smart and had a talent for writing poems. I often told her she should have a book of poem published, but she would just smile and not brag on herself. This beautiful lady was a servant for God and now she is with him all around his glory in heaven above. Everybody get ready to meet her in heaven.
Love and Prayers to all
