July 5, 1929 – Dec. 24, 2014
Thelma was born July 5, 1929 into the large family of James and Elizabeth Gerry in Wilkie, Sask. She grew up enjoying music and a happy farm life in rural Manitoba, making many fond memories with her siblings. Thelma also learned to love the Bible and Jehovah God as a young person and was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1942 in the Assiniboine River in Brandon, Manitoba. She truly delighted to share the good news of God’s Kingdom with everyone, even during the last months of her life while battling the effects of ALS. Her strong faith in the promised paradise gave her much comfort and hope. She is predeceased by her husband James Ingle, her son David, her brothers Ed, Wes, Bill, Don and Howard and her sisters, Evelyn, Edith, and Edna. She is survived by her dear sisters Isabel and Eva, her son Stephen (Susan), daughters Chris (Charlie), Lois (Wilf) and Charla (Marty) and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Mom deeply appreciated all the help she got from her family, her many caregivers and dear brothers and sisters at the Kingdom Hall. Her beautiful smile and positive attitude will be greatly missed. A memorial service was held at the Grand Forks Kingdom Hall on Jan 3, 2015.
