Thelma Sue Smith Reed was born October 13, 1948 to Burtis and Annie Mae Smith in Dallas, Texas. She went to be with the Lord on November 26, 2014 at the age of 66. Thelma married T.J Reed on July 3, 1965 and spent a wonderful 49 years together. They met for the first time when T.J worked for a service station and Thelma drove up with her brother riding on the tailgate of a truck. When Jerry Ray came out of the station, Thelma asked him if he knew who that was behind the counter cause I’m going to marry him. Jerry Ray responded by saying that man just told him the same thing about her. “Big Baby”, as her family called her, enjoyed her time creating ceramics, fishing and outdoors. She spent many days and nights sitting in her rocking chair on the front porch watching the birds fly. Thelma was a member of the Country Bible Church. She was preceded in death by her parents, her son Jerry Don Reed and sister Mary Smith. Those left to cherish her memory are: her husband; her grandchildren: Randy Littlejohn and wife Autumn, Alysa Littlejohn, Lois Holleman and R.C Holleman; Sisters: Zelma Wise and husband Robert, Wanda Stevenson and husband Wallace and Debora Littlejohn; Brothers: Jerry Warren and wife Candy, Sam Smith and wife Trish; as well as Cynthia Holleman and husband Doug and numerous nieces and nephews who will miss her dearly.
