We fondly remember dear Thelma from our years in the Liverpool community from 1987 to 1996 and her special love for Grace Church.
We were glad of the opportunity to visit with her in her little home in the town some years ago. One of her crochet pieces graces the table in front of our living room window.
God rest her soul and may she live on in the memories of her loving family and friends.

Our deepest sympathy to the family of Thelma. Our wonderful memories of her at the Manor will never be forgotten. Her great outlook on life was very infectious and she will be sadly missed.
It is with a sad heart that I write this message. Mom always thought of Aunt Thelma as the sister she never had and that feeling extended to me. No one could make seafood chowder like Aunt Thelma and her crochet angel and doily hold a special place in my house. Aunt Thelma was a giving person whether it was through her volunteer work at the church, nursing home or other causes. Over the years she made a number of lives and deaths easier. While she may no longer be with us in person, she will always be in our thoughts and hearts. I will miss her terribly. While I cannot be with you at this difficult time, know that I am with you in spirit. Love to all – Heather

Dear Ginny, Reg, and families;
My dear friend Thelma, You were one year less 6 days older when your grandmother as midwife helped to safely bring me into this world. Spiritually and mentally, we couldn’t have been closer. We have been close and special friends for 91 years. I have many good memories that I still cherish to this day. It has been 7 years since we last were together, but you have always been in my mind and thoughts.
I send my love and prayers to you Thelma, and to your loving family.
My deepest sympathy and love to all.

Dear family of Thelma,
What memories you must have of wonderful years with Thelma in your life. I have known her only for a few short years, since my dog Phoebe and I have been visiting a Queen’s Manor. In those short years, we came to love Thelma and believe she truly enjoyed our visits. We would talk about the house, I live in the house she was born and raised in, and look over photographs. I would admire her crocheting and she would give Phoebe treats from her drawer. Thelma was like sunshine, bright and warm and inviting. Thanks to her loving family, Thelma’s room was full of flowers and cards and photographs, and Thelma was always looked lovely. I hope her family finds comfort in knowing other people will remember Thelma with joy and love in our hearts.
Pamela Ditchoff and Phoebe
I was saddened to read of Thelma’s passing. She was always a wonderful presence at Grace Church when I used to minister there. She will be greatly missed.
