    To the entire family our thoughts and prayers are with you. Your mom and grandma was so dear to everyone at Skutt. She was everyone’s Grandma and had a way of making you feel special. Pure class in every way. Our life is so much better for having her a part of it. Her Christmas cookies were just as special as her. Heaven got an Angel on earth ❤️ Love the Engelkamp Family xo

    My heart is broken that Aunt Thelma is no longer with us, but I know she is in a better place. She is my favorite Aunt because she reminds me so much of my own mom. I loved her dearly and will miss her. Although it has been a while since I have seen her, I listened in on many of her and mom’s phone conversations. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and wish we could be there for you all. We love you.

    Deeply saddened to hear of Thelma’s passing. Her brother and me loved her dearly. She was “one of a kind”. And, everyone that met her immediately loved bed her. Enjoyed her annual visits for crabs that her brother, Shorty , and friends caught. She was a classy lady always. Will miss her dearly ❤️ Love always, Anne Shelton

    Condolences to the family. I am saddened to hear of Thelma’s passing. She will be sorely missed. She was such a beautiful, loving person and was always smiling.
    I haven’t seen her in years but I I remember her fondly.
    Although I am just a friend of the family she always gave me big hugs, I remember her coming to eat crabs at Anne and Stan’s in the summer, we would exchange recipes all the time. What a classy lady she was. Heaven just received a beautiful Angel..

    We loved Thelma and the whole family! She was a great neighbor – the absolute best! Our son Jacob has known the ‘grandma next door’ since the day we brought him home from the hospital as an infant. He grew up doing small chores like grabbing the mail or fetching stray trash cans. We will cherish her kindness and the fun times we shared. Oh and those Christmas goodies too! Wishing the entire family comfort in remembering Thelma’s kind spirit. Hugs and prayers for your loss.
