How difficult it is to say goodbye to my Auntie. She was not only my Auntie but she was also my godmother and I was named after her. I loved going to her house as a child. She always made me feel so very special. I will never forget all the family get-togethers we had. These are all the special memories that molded us into the people that we are today. She touched us all and will be greatly missed. I love you Auntie with all my heart. You were a very special lady.

Aunt Thelma was a very special, and beloved Aunt to me , and my sister, Deanna, and my brothers, Pete, John, and Sonny. Our times together will always be a special part of our memories. She was always there to lend an ear, or a shoulder to lean on. Loved the times we had together, at her house, or at Grammy’s. We all enjoyed the stories of years gone by. I remember myself, and Karen, Pam, and Thelma sitting on the stairs, listening to every word! My fondest memories, growing up, were the times our families spent together in Maine. Aunt Thelma will forever have a special place in my heart, and my family’s.
Rest In Peace, Aunt Thelma

Auntie had a way of making you feel like you were the most special person in the world. She always put other people before herself. She was such a sweet, caring lady and everyone who knew her loved her. Her family meant everything to her. We have so many special memories having family get-togethers, trips, and conversations that always included lots of laughter. I'll miss her soft voice, the mischievous sparkle in her eyes and her sweet smile. She meant the world to me and to my family, and she will be forever in our hearts.

No matter when we were together she was ready for a good laugh. Whenever I told a joke she would laugh and say Oh John.
She was my favorite auntie and I will miss her.

She was “Auntie” to my two sisters and I. And we were lovingly referred to as “her girls”. She was a loving part of our lives since we were born. She loved to share memories about the old days growing up on the farm, and she had such great stories of the past. She was my biggest supporter and resource for my family tree project, always excited to hear what new history I’d uncovered. I enjoyed so many conversations with her... some I know I’ll cherish with a smile. She was more than just an aunt to me. She was like a second mom and a dear friend as well. I will miss her dearly. Auntie held a very special place in my heart...and she always will.
Rest In Peace, Auntie. God bless.
