Thelma married James VanBuren (J. V.) Starkey in 1960 in New Mexico, after the death of his first wife. Thelma had grown children by a previous marriage. She and J. V. made their home in Portales for several years before moving to Franklin, Robertson County, Texas, where J. V. had grown up and still had relatives. They enjoyed raising a garden, visiting with kinfolks and attended the New Baden Baptist Church. They had been living in Franklin many years when Thelma died. She was laid to rest among the graves of J. V.'s parents and siblings in Franklin Cemetery. He was later buried by her.
