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.

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.
