I just learned of Aunt Thelma's passing today (August 12th). I'm so very sorry to have missed her funeral. I have many fond memories (distant ones, now) of visiting Burford when I was small, when Great-Grandma Pierce was still alive. Aunt Thelma was a gentle and kind soul - still always so warm to me on the rare time we saw each other in later years. My condolences to the whole family. With much love and fondness, Kristi (Merrill) Di Teodoro

I met this lovely lady through my Mom, Laura Hardie because they worked together at the Burford Post Office.They were like minded ladies who soon became fast friends.I met Thelma's son Philip in high school art class and we would be wandering sketch buddies, We also picked cucumbers together for a season. I wish to express my most heart-felt condolences to the Brooks family and am so sorry for your loss.Its been two years since we lost Mom and I miss her every day.But I can see them together now catching up over a nice cup of tea , both now reunited with their loved ones who've gone before them.I hope this thought lessens the great sadness I know you're all feeling.Blessings and much love, Holly Hardie

When my mother married Ron’s father, we gained such beautiful extended family with Ron and Pat, Becky, Shawn, Thelma, the boys and of course Grandma Pierce. I loved going to Burford with my parents and enjoying Thelma’s amazing cooking. She was always so very good to me. She, Ron and Pat came to visit my husband and I several years ago in Embrun. I was so delighted to spend time with my brother and ‘big sis’, but also very happy to be able to extend hospitality to a woman who had done so to me, so many times in my childhood. May you Rest In Peace Thelma, you will always be in my thoughts. You were a remarkable woman.
