Illness* 14 March 2007  Thelma sufferred from Alzheimer's disease. She was diagnosed in 2003. She maintained a fairly normal health using medication until 2006 when she was also found to have non-malignant cysts attached to her liver and kidney. These started to interfere with her breathing around August 2006 and she was given 3 months to live. Come November her health improved and she started reading again and knew her family and she remained this way until after her birthday in January. At this point she started to loose more an more of her memory and slowly lost motor functions and by early March could not walk or feed herself. She rapidly became bed ridden and not able to swallow which led to not being able to receive medications, food or water. It is thought the sudden decline was the result of many small strokes.She died peacefully on the morning of the 14th after a night of labored breathing.

Thelma also lost a breast to cancer around 2000. She had a single matectomy including lymph node removal and no further cancer was found or reacurred.3
