Thelma Klabo of Renton passed away surrounded by family at Evergreen Hospice Sunday September 16, 2012. She was 93 years old.

Thelma was born June 11, 1919 in Northwood, North Dakota, the daughter of Louie and Gina Johnson. She was raised in North Dakota and attended Northwood High School. She married Theodore (Ted) Klabo November 14, 1936. They had two daughters Patricia (Pat) and Barbara (Bobbie). They farmed for several years and at one time had a restaurant.

In 1951 they moved to Carnation, Washington where Ted managed a dairy and Thelma worked for what is now Remlinger Farms. After living for a time in Seattle and Issaquah, they moved to the Renton Highlands in the early 1960's where Thelma lived until moving to an assisted living complex about 7 years ago.

After working there a number of years, Thelma retired from the Darigold Ice Cream plant in Seattle.

Thelma was an active member of St. Matthews Church. She loved her church and the time she spent helping with various activities. She so enjoyed her "baby blanket" project which she continued even after moving to assisted living. She eagerly helped with anything that needed to be done.
