The lunch bunch always enjoyed going to Thelma's house for a potluck. She and her daughters were always so welcoming. Thelma and I sat in the same pew at church. She will be missed by a lot of people. My sympathy to the family and to all the friends who will miss her so much.

My Mother and I are very sorry to hear of Thelma's passing. When we met with her and the family in the past, she always had a smile on her face with a bright personality that brightened any room. I have a lot of great memories of her and Marion at their home in Fort Wayne when we visited years ago. They were very encouraging people as well as their fine children over the years. The music playing during the Memory Book section here is very fitting and beautiful: "One True Love" by Bruce H. Zimmerman. She and Marion really loved all their family members. She and Marion are missed. Our Condolences to the family, sincerely Jean Wetmore and Jeff Wetmore
