Thelma will be remembered always. Not only for her huge heart, but she made the BEST noodle salad. We even still have her homemade dishcloths, and poncho she made Kaytlin. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. She will be missed!

My heart hurts to know this wonderful lady is no longer here. She had a huge impact on my girl’s lives as “Gramma Thelma”, as well as my life as my “second mom.” You all are such giving, loving people. May God give you peace.
Love Always, Jen, Marlesa & Billie

May the Lord comfort you and give you peace knowing that Thelma is whole again and living in glory with the rest of our family that has gone before us. We all look forward to joining them again some day in heaven. Love, Millie, Jeff, Coleen, Nancy, Greg, Carla, Rob, Leina, JJ and Jordan Dallmann.
