Thelma received her education in Rome, N.Y. During her years in this area she worked at Glens Falls Hospital as a housekeeper and later as a sitter.

Her family noted she was loved by all. In addition to crocheting, knitting, reading her Bible, and spending time with loved ones, Thelma enjoyed sitting on the front porch in nice weather listening to the wind blow.

Bovair, Sue Dean, Ted Bovair, Jason (Danielle) Bovair, Garrett Bovair, David (Carole) Evans, Kim Rollo, Meghan Evans and her fiancé, Tim Jung, Joe (Sonya) Evans and Chris Evans; 14 great-grandchildren; one great-great grandchild; and a sister-in-law, Vivian Bovair.

Friends may call on the family from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 16, at the Maynard D. Baker Funeral Home, 11 Lafayette St., Queensbury.
