She will be deeply missed by her loving husband Dennis Aho, daughter Shannon Crowle, and sons Jason (Diana) Aho their children Tyler and Ashlyn, and Allan (Donna) Crowle, their children Megan, Halley, Marc and James. Thelma is also survived by her mother Elda Freer, brothers Edwin (Jeanne) Freer and Patrick Freer, along with nieces, numerous relatives and friends.

Thelma enjoyed life, playing with her grandchildren, attending family reunions, traveling, cruising, a good movie and starting her day with a good cup of coffee and a newspaper. She was a great bowling coach and volunteered with various other youth programs. All who knew Thelma will miss her warm heart, big beautiful smile and wonderful sense of humor.
