Thelma Delois Thomas, daughter of the late Jubber Churchill Terrell and Rhoda Marshall, peacefully departed this life and entered into eternal life surrounded by her 3 children on August 28, 2018.
Thelma was born on April 7, 1933 and attended Hanover County Public Schools and gave her life to Christ at the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church and has been a lifetime member and served as a Missionary.
She was joined in holy matrimony to the late Robert Henry Thomas, Sr. in 1949 and was blessed with 3 children. Thelma retired from Keller Ladder Co. and later worked in the hospitality industry. Even though she didn’t mind telling you like it was, Thelma was known for her sense of humor, her love for shopping, spending time with her family and cooking her favorites; Sweet Potato Pie and Corn Pudding. To know her, was to love her!
She was preceded in death by her by her brothers Charles Terrell and James Terrell.
She leaves to cherish her memories her children; Gloria Dabney, Robert Thomas, Jr. and Lorenzo Thomas; three sisters; Dorothy Ford, Katherine Nelson and Betty Martin; one brother; Joseph Terrell; several grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives.
