Thelma maintained her determination and positive attitude to the end. Her pioneering spirit served her well throughout her life and we are sure that she will still be scouting new pathways in the afterlife, we would like to thank the palliative care workers who made Thelma’s final days easier and express gratitude to our Health Care System for all the structure and support that is second to none.
You will be greatly missed Sister, Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, friend & neighbor.
May your spirit be at peace.
We love you.
