"A precious one from us has gone. A voice we loved is stilled. A place is vacant in our home, which never can be filled."

Mother and grandmother. Worked at the Piggott Library, ran Thelma's Cafe in Pollard, and farmed with her husband, Jess, to whom she was married for 41 years. Her family remembers her as an excellent cook who could make about anything, including homemade candies. She also loved square dancing, singing, going to rummage sales, writing poetry, and drawing. She was a member of First Baptist Church of Piggott. Thelma died from a massive heart-attack at age 79. Blessed be her memory.

Mother of Louis Wetzel Haynes, Linda Jean Elkins, Patsy Lee "Pat" Stokes Adams, Clara Mae Braman Haise, Mary Faye Johnson, Lon "Sonny" Johnson, Janice Rodery, and Jerry Johnson.


Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;
love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Thank you to those who leave tokens.
