I loved my aunt Thelma. When I was little she would take me to Penny’s and buy me anklet socks. In later years whenI lost my mother , her sister Loretta, I kind of looked at her as my second mother. She lived close to me for many years and I would look out for her. I moved to California three years ago and it was really hard to leave because of her. Everyone said they would look out fo her and they did. She will be missed by all of us. Aunt Thelma and mom will reunite in heaven!

Thelma was always my favorite babysitter-she let me do whatever I wanted! So many memories of the Ohio Ice Cream Company, sitting at the desk under the steps, so close to them making ice cream. The last time I saw Thelma she still could remember any and everything from the past. Tell everyone I said hi in Heaven!

What I most admired about Thelma was the fact that she lived life on her terms in her way. I visited with Thelma at her house several years ago to discuss our family history. She and I shared stories and memories about my grandmother, Myrtle Brigmon Williams, who was her aunt. We talked on the phone a few times about family, her childhood, and how times have changed. We were able to gather as an extended family in 2019 at Milliken Woods. She, Jeannie, and Atha Toon were able to connect the dots on numerous pictures and family history.
Thelma was a genuine friend who cared about family, friends, and the people around her. I was blessed to know her! I celebrate her life!

I am sorry to hear of Thelma's passing. Praying for the family in the days and weeks ahead as they adjust to their new life without here. I did not know her well but know that she was part of my Brigmon Family and that makes her special.
