So sorry to learn of Thelma's passing. She was a beautiful person, very quiet in demeaner with a soft and pleasant manner. Thelma was a loyal sorority sister in Delta Master Chapter where we got to know each other well. She became a member at large when her health began to fail, but always tried to join us on those occasions when we held our meetings at Ivany Place. It was always good to see her and she enjoyed the lunch and meetings. She will be missed and will remain in our hearts and memories. May you know that you are remembered at this time.
Joan Fraser, Sorority Sister, Delta Master
