Thelma M. Robinson, 99, passed away at her home in Aberdeen on Saturday, Aug. 27, 2016. Thelma was born on Oct. 4, 1916 to Albert and Annie Walker in Blackfoot, ID. Thelma married George Robinson on Dec. 9, 1938 in Milford, UT.
She worked as a grocery clerk for several stores in Aberdeen. Later she worked at Lamb Weston in American Falls until retirement. Thelma enjoyed crafts of all kinds, especially knitting. She also enjoyed watching sports on television. Thelma loved watching her great-grandsons play baseball and football. After her retirement she was very active with the senior center in Aberdeen and loved meeting there with the ladies once a week to do crafts and have lunch.
Even after her mobility was impaired her favorite activity was to go for car rides. She didn’t care where we went as long as she could have a soft ice cream cone either on the way there or on the way back or both if she could get away with it.
Thelma is survived by daughters, Patsy Sunderman, Twin Falls, ID, and Penny Tubbs of Aberdeen, ID. Surviving grandchildren include George Newberry, Gail Howerton, Kathy Hayes, Layne Tubbs, Greg Newberry and Verl Tubbs. Eleven great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren also survive her.
Thelma was preceded by her husband George, parents Albert and Annie Walker, brother Raymond Walker, sisters Ida Nungesser, Phyllis Steinlecht and Jean Fox.
We would like to thank Heritage Hospice for all their help and especially Dr. Mills, Patti Koger and Jeralyn Heron.
A graveside service will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, at the Aberdeen Cemetery, Aberdeen. Condolences and memories may be shared at www.davisrosemortuary.com.
