Thelma spent her formative years on the family farm in the Readymade
district, where she had fond family memories and learned how to work hard.
On January 20, 1962 she married Wes Selman and lived in Calgary until 1976
when they moved to Raymond and resided there until her passing.
Her home was a gathering place for family and friends where everyone was
welcome, especially on holidays and special occasions.
She was a genuine and compassionate person, who accepted anyone without
judgment. Thelma was a loyal friend and loved to have fun. She maintained
her sense of humor right up to the end.
Thelma loved her children and grandchildren and always let them know of her
love for them. She was especially proud of her two grandsons presently
serving missions, Kinsey Kindt serving in Argentina and Ty Olsen serving in
Thelma had endured health problems over the years and is now at rest
reunited with loved ones who have gone on before.
Her passing is bittersweet. We will miss her, but take comfort in the
knowledge that we will be with her again.
