In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband Lionel and a son Leo.
Thelma was a homemaker, taking care of the house, raising the kids as well as many of the neighborhoods. She never allowed for anyone to leave hungry. Thelma loved to cook, bake, sew, plastic canvas crafts, and could make a costume out of most anything at the drop of a hat. She always enjoyed people of all ages dropping in for a visit, and maybe for some fries, homemade fish in batter or deep fried bologna. Thelma spent her last years at Whitehall Estates, where the staff became like family that she loved, especially Brenda. Thank you for the care and love shown to her while she was there.
Arrangements are in the care of the St. George Funeral Home & Crematorium (755-3533). There will be no visiting at the funeral home. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated from Stella Maris Catholic Church on Tuesday at 11:30 am with Father Rolando Suplido officiating followed by interment in the church cemetery. In Thelma's memory, donations to the Alzheimer's Society of New Brunswick, New Brunswick Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of the donors choice would be appreciated by the family.
