Obituary

Thelma D Tew, passed away Thursday March 31, 2022 at her home in Chatom, AL., at the age of 85.  She was surrounded by her family when she left this world to meet her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Thelma was born and raised in Georgia.  She attended The Baptist Church in Georgia, where her father preached, when she was a child. Thelma married at age fifteen and had her first child of six at age sixteen.  Thelma received her Real Estate License, from a school in Georgia, while being married and raising her six children. In Thelma's adult years she attended a variety of churches before she made her home church Christian Independent Assembly.   Thelma made sure her children attended and was involved in the Church.  Some of her hobbies were to sew, cook, read, watch game shows and comedies. Her favorite book was the Bible. Thelma didn't have a favorite Bible Verse, she loved them all.  When she was unable to attend church, she enjoyed watching Televangelism on the television.  Even though she was a Homebody she always spoke her mind.  In 2014, Thelma came to visit her daughter and family in Chatom, AL. and never left.  Thelma not only leaves her family and friends behind, she is leaving her furbaby Chihuahua, Prissy.  She will be missed by her family and friends.
