Thelma P. Nephew

PLATTSBURGH — Thelma P. Nephew, 80, of Michaele Avenue, died Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012, at the CVPH Medical Center. She was born in Lyon Mountain on May 8, 1932 the daughter of Edward J. and Ella (Boyea) Secore.

Thelma worked at many various jobs, but the one she enjoyed most were the years spent working for Plattsburgh Lanes, where she was instrumental in founding and organizing the Senior Bowling League. She also was very active with the Junior Bowlers. Thelma remained active in the Senior League until ill health forced her to stop bowling, but she continued to be secretary of the league until approximately four years ago.

She loved knitting and crocheting, and her beautiful handiwork was in high demand until the last year, when she could no longer do it. She also had a great love and compassion for cats and could never let a cat be cold or hungry, therefore, taking in many strays.
