Thinking of you, Marilyn and family... I always enjoyed hearing Thelma play I'm So Happy (among other songs) at church... I always enjoyed talking with her during greeting at service.

I know there is rejoicing in Heaven today.
Mrs. Greathouse was a wonderful woman she was always so kind to all of us kids at church.  She was truly an example of Christianity in action to us all.
I know she and my grandmother Aletha Anderson are having a wonderful visit right now.
God Bless you

My sincere condolences go out to Marilyn and her family with deep sadness in the passing of Thelma.  She is sorely missed by me.  When I was in town, I enjoyed and savored every visit I had with her.  The many phone call I made to make her laugh and know there is someone other than the ones living close to her was thinking of her.  She always came back with a positive Christian spirit.

Thelma will always have a special place in our hearts.  She was a part of our family through the Agency.  Phil remember's how much he enjoyed her playing the organ at the Williamsburg Church of the Nazarene for the many funerals he had there.
