I remember Sis.Thelma from my childhood for her deep North Carolina accent! She and Bro. Stevens were good friends of my parents, Bob and Leona Chism. We were also charget members of Eastside Church of the Nazarene, worshipping in a tent first then on McDonald Av. in New Albany.
Thelma had a heart laugh and a big heart. She loved her kids; loved to iron shirts; loved life.
Now she is at Home with her Lord whom she loved best. Blessings to the family she left behind.
