Thelma R Williamson

Thelma Ruth Williamson, 84 years, of Seaman, Ohio, passed away on Tuesday, March 7, 2017, at the Ohio Valley Manor Nursing Home, in Ripley, Ohio.

Thelma was born in Seaman, Ohio, on July 14, 1932, the daughter of William Edward Williamson and Hattie Martin Williamson. She graduated from North Adams High School and worked as a farmer her entire life, taking over the family farm after her father’s death. She later worked for the Seaman Flower Shoppe. Thelma especially loved the flowers that she grew each year. She attended the Seaman United Presbyterian Church, where she served as the Sunday school secretary, and was a member of the North Adams Senior Citizen organization.

After a series of surgeries, Thelma moved to an assisted-living apartment at the Ohio Valley Manor, where she lived for several years. She stayed as active as possible, participating in activities as much as her health allowed.

Thelma was preceded in death by her parents and her close friend Dolly Osman. Her passing will be mourned by her care giver Ethel Chambers, and her caregiver’s sons, Steve and Bill Chambers, of Seaman, as well as a classmate, Richard Stern, of Wilmington. She will be missed by her cousins and extended family, as well as many dear friends.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, March 10, 2017, at 1:00 PM, at the Lewis-Sullivan Funeral Home, in Seaman, with Rev. Ken Johnson officiating. Burial will follow at the Tranquility Cemetery in Seaman.

Friends and family may pay their respects at the funeral home from 12:00 PM until the time of the service on Friday, at the Lewis-Sullivan Funeral Home.
