Thelma Skelton

December 9, 1942 – April 18, 2021
Thelma passed away unexpectedly in Port Alberni on Sunday, April 18, 2021 with her children by her side.
Predeceased by her loving husband Terry of 44 years and parents Harold and Ellen Childs. Survived by children Todd (Patti) and Tanis (Larry); grandchildren Bryce, Blake, Amanda (Dan) and Shannon (Lyle); great grandchildren Ella, Jayla, Maddix and Jett; sisters Ella (Dick), Phyllis and Margaret (Don) as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family.
Thelma was born and raised in Prince Rupert, where she met Terry – the love of her life – on a blind date. They moved to Port Alberni in the early 70s, where they raised their family, then retired in Parksville and Nanaimo area.
Thelma moved back to Port Alberni after Terry passed away to be closer to her daughter and grandsons. Thelma will always be known for her creative talents – quilting, knitting and needlework. She loved baking, always making cookies for her family and friends.
There will be no service due to COVID.
