Thelma's family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the staff of Manor Care South and Heartland Hospice Care for all the personal attention and care given to Thelma during her stay.

Thlema was a loving mother and grandmother who adored spending time and taking care of her grandchildren and family. She liked cooking and baking. But what she really enjoyed was dancing and listening to southern country music, she was dancing at Manor Care when she able. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now; He set me free. Dancing in Heaven!
