QUINTON ThelmaPosted: July 21st, 2014
With mixed emotions, the family of THELMA TOLMAN QUINTON announce her passing following a long and valiant struggle with kidney failure. Sad to see her leave us for a time but glad she is now free of pain and suffering and now with loved ones who have gone before. She is the beloved wife of Dean Woolf Quinton and mother to Ronnald (Catherine), Maureen (Jim) Scott, Terrance (Joan), Coralee (Gary) Purnell, James (Connie) and Jana (Randy) Graham. Her posterity also includes 33 grandchildren, 64 great grandchildren and 1 great, great grandchild. She loved her family and welcomed not only them, but all who entered her home. She took great delight in the "tiny ones" and only 12 hours before her passing, she was holding a dear little 2 year old great grandson on her lap as she gave him a ride in her mobile chair around the room. Grandmas homemade bread and choke cherry jelly were favorites. Including her immediate family, she is survived by a brother Gerald (Diane) Tolman and sisters-in-law Veronica Tolman and Micky Tolman. Mom is predeceased by her husband Dean, grandchildren Randi Leavitt Olsen and Kyle Leavitt, parents George and Emily Cheney Tolman and siblings Fontella (Edwin) MacDonell, Edna (Adair) Caldwell, Fay (Al Bunnage, Lavar Leishman), Eva (Paul) Sache, Olive (Dave) Boyer, Mona (Keith) Prince, David Tolman and Keith Tolman. Mom was known as a kind, gentle but firm, generous, patient, hard working and long suffering person. We will miss her strength and guiding presence. A special thank you to all of those at the Dialysis Clinic that have been so kind to our mother over the years. We thank the many care givers that have provided kind attention to our Mom.
