Thelma was a real trooper when it came to raising kids, her own and others. She welcomed many who spent months under her roof. She fed them and was more than happy to feed and care for them in any way she could. Her cooking was heralded by all for its quality as well as quantity. Thelma was on a bowling team which she enjoyed very much. Not only was she a superb homemaker, but she helped George renovate houses, whether it was a friend, her children, or a customers. You will have a difficult time finding a truer follower of Christ than Mrs. Lomas. She was totally devoted and let everyone know it. She enjoyed singing with her lovely voice and found joy whistling.
