Thelma (Thomas) Richardson died Wednesday, July 11, 2018 at 2:34 p.m. at her home in Puyallup, Washington surrounded by family members. Our dearest Oma died after a long battle with Alzheimer disease at the age of 102. She was born on Woodlawn Plantation in Houma, Louisiana on October 2, 1915. She moved to New Orleans as a teenager and spent her time there until the age of 87. After the beginning stages of her Alzheimer disease she moved to Washington to be with family until her death. She is survived by her son Sam J. Richardson and her grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Anyone who knew Thelma knew that her greatest pleasure in life was attending church and standing in the roles of usher and treasury secretary. Our dearest mother and grandmother will be missed and remembered for her kindness and sage advice. She will be joining her husband Silas Richardson and son Charles Peirce into eternal life. She will be buried at Mountain View Cemetery in Lakewood, WA, Thursday, July19th.
