Thelma was a proud member of the Verda First Baptist Church, where she was the oldest female member of the church. Having been saved and baptized at the age of 12, Thelma also had the distinction of being the member with the longest, active, continuous membership. Thelma loved singing in the church choir, where her Alto voice rang out loud and sweet. One of her greatest joys in life was being outside, working with her flowers.
