I met Theda when I started to work at Catawba County DSS in 1973. We quickly became friends and had many enjoyable times together. She took her work seriously and helped many clients that came through our doors. The word "kind" has been used to describe her over the past few days and that is who she was. After she and I retired we were able to take a few trips together and always had a good time. She will be missed by so many who knew her. She cared deeply for her family and I pray precious memories will bring you comfort during the coming days.

My heart goes out to the family. Theda was such a loving person. She was very good to me when we moved to Hickory years ago. I feel blessed to have known her. She will be greatly missed.

My prayers go out to the family of Theda. I have know her for many years. Her husband Frank and my husband Darryll joined the navy together in 1955. Her and I spent many days raising our children. Remember when Skipper was just a little guy. My son Ricky would push him in the stroller. He was barely big enough to push but he tried. When my husband returned from Japan we moved away and we had little contact with each other. But to this day she was a wonderful friend. I had the opportuntiy to see her and Skipper at the Snack Bar.in the summer. So happy I was able to spend a few moments with them. We have lost a wonderful person . She will be greatly missed. Again my prayers to the family.
