Thelma Adams

ADAMS, Thelma Laurelie

We regret to announce the sudden passing of Thelma Laurelie Adams, at the age of 66 years. Thelma was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan on March 16, 1941. When she was four years old, her family moved to Winfield. The Neufeld family made Vernon their permanent home in 1952 where Thelma has resided since. She worked as both a legal and conveyancing secretary at Kidston and Company for fifteen years until her recent retirement. She was a devoted volunteer for the Vernon Minor Hockey Club as well as for the Vernon Kokanees for way too many years to count. Thelma had a great love for the game of golf, snow-birding it to California, playing (and winning) the penny machines at a variety of casinos and had a voracious appetite for reading. Thelma was predeceased by her husband, Raymond and her father, Adolph Neufeld. Words cannot express how much she will be missed by her family; sons: Kent (Debbie) of Vernon, Clayton (Jauna) of Vernon, Darren (Trish) of Kelowna and daughters: Sheri (Jason) of Vancouver, Dawn (Reg) of Langley and Kimberley of Vernon. She is also survived by her mother, Tina Neufeld of Lake Country and her sister, Lydia (Robert) Hobbs of Delta and loving grandchildren; also numerous extended family and a host of good friends which are too many to mention. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2007 at 3:00 pm at the Pleasant Valley Chapel. Friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Thelma to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
