Thelma Frances Reid Munroe
May 30, 1932 – October 14, 2018
We are saddened to announce the sudden passing of Thelma on October 14th. She leaves behind a legacy of thoughtfulness and boundless love of her family. She will be sorely missed by her family, her two daughters, Peigi Stewart of Kamloops and Lisa Morin (Jesus) of Mazatlán Mexico, her brother Bob Reid (Marnie) of Vernon and her brother-in-law Tony DeAngelis of Kamloops. Also, her grandsons, James Day of Surrey, Shawn Day (Reagan) of Kamloops, Craig Day of Kamloops, and Adam Munroe (Jenna) of Kamloops. She had 8 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Thelma loved to watch her great grandchildren grow and develop. She was proud of her family’s accomplishments.
Thelma loved to travel and has spent recent winters in Mazatlán with her daughter. She readily made friends and her love of the game of bridge opened new friendships wherever she played. She was very intelligent and had an amazing memory. She was an aggressive Life Master Duplicate Bridge player often topping the duplicate bridge competitions. She loved to teach new bridge players. Many players wanted her as their partner.
She gave the most thoughtful and memorable gifts. Nephews tried to find gifts for others ‘like one that Thelma would give’. Thelma could not say a negative word about anyone. If there was reason to make a comment it was more of a look and a shake of the head but never a bad word. As a teacher, she won a provincial teaching award. She cared deeply for her students and they came to her often for personal advice. Her passion for teaching embodied her life, helping others.
Thelma was a proud Canadian. She was the Queen of Hearts and trumped all Aces.
In memoriam donations may be made to Hospice House where Thelma volunteered.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday October 27th at Frick & Frack 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm.Print This Obituary & Condolences
