In addition to her parents, Thelma was predeceased by her husband, Donald; son, Kirk; her sister, Estella Harvey; her brothers-in-law, William Harvey and Carl Davidson.
After living in Middleton, Nova Scotia, for the first few years of their marriage, Thelma and Don moved to Lower Saint Mary’s where they raised their two sons. Thelma worked for Fredericton Housing and then R.C. Bird Construction before retiring.
Thelma loved the outdoors and fall was her favorite season. She enjoyed hunting and was a long-time member of the Lake George Gun Club. Often she could be found in her garden, camping, fishing or cross country skiing with her family.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital for their care and support.
Donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, The Lung Association or the Canadian Cancer Society.
