Telling the story of someone’s life in mere sentences is always a difficult task. Individuals close to Thelma will always remember her iconic smile and her witty sense of humor. Though her battle with Alzheimer’s ultimately impaired her memory and her physical abilities, those of us who were close to her will remember her genuine love for her family and animals.
For the better part of her adult life, Thelma milked cows on her daughter and son-in-law’s farm and, when she decided to retire, turned to her lifetime love of horses. She loved horses and could be found feeding her two horses twice per day, well into her 80’s. Though her physical abilities were failing, she remained outdoors for most of her day.
Her door was never locked, and she would be awake late into the night, welcoming anyone who wanted to visit. It was nearly impossible to leave her living room without first enjoying a glass of sweet tea and a smile on your face from her quiet sense of humor.
They say dying is more of an affair of the people left behind than your own. I’m not sure if that’s true or not but I think we can all agree that Thelma will be greatly, greatly missed.
