I knew Thelma and her husband Ray most of my life. The two of them were friends of my parents. Thelma and my mother Betty Stannard were best friends for nearly 50 years until my mothers death in 2003. They were two of a kind, GRAND LADIES, I miss them greatly.

Thelma was full of life -- when she came to St. Charles to visit Karen, the three of us would play cards, have lunch & visit. We had a great time -- she was a cut-up for sure. She will be missed, but I know she is in a better place.

I only knew of Thelma from her daughter Karen. And I know how much Karen loved & cherished her mother. I am so sorry for all of you but esp Karen with her own difficult situation to contend with. I'm sure this is a devastating loss for Karen. My sympathies to you all.

Thelma was my dearest friend and confidante. I will forever cherish our friendship which goes back to the 70's when we both lived in the same apartment complex in Arlington Heights, IL. Although we lived miles apart we kept in contact by phone weekly. I loved her dearly. Barb Fleischer
