  4. Our Condolences to the family for “Aunt ” Thelma…From Jean Roberts, Janet Gray and family. We loved her, and she was a good friend to my Mom after they met at DuPont years ago, were in a bridge club together, attended many family events with us, and even a 50 plus Aerobics class with Mom in later years, she took Mom to appts and visited her every week after Mom stopped driving !
    She was a fun person too, many laughs.. We will miss her, and wish the family condolences and blessings…

  5. Thelma will be missed. She volunteered in the Winterthur Archives with me for many years transcribing oral history tapes on a Dictaphone, a lost art. She was funny and such a lovely woman. My condolences.

  6. To the family of “Aunt” Thelma– I worked with Thelma at Du Pont in the ’50’s in the Employee Relations Section. Although I can’t remember her boss, I do remember meeting up with her years later at Church Women United programs. What a wonderful, full, and long life she lived!
