Thelma was born in Jackson County, Kentucky, on December 2, 1932, the third of eight children of Wiley & Daisy Isaacs.

Thelma and Hershel were married for sixty-two years, eight months and three days until his death in 2014. Thelma always kept her hands busy; she could be found canning, gardening, or sewing; she always made sure her family was taken care of. Her love for her family was immeasurable. Thelma was unwavering in her faith, and the Bible was fulfillment unto her soul. She spent many hours praying for her family and encouraged others to find their answers from within the Word of God. She attended The Unity Holiness House of Prayer. Thelma enjoyed going to church and spending time with her children and family. Thelma will be missed by her children and family, and will be remembered for her wisdom, her strength and her dedication to her Lord.
