She captured the heart of her future husband, LeRoy, on the dance floor at the Winter Garden in Hastings, NE. On October 8, 1957, she was united in marriage to LeRoy Romaine Soucie at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Lawrence, NE. They made their home in Fairfield.
Thelma did secretarial work for Ben Sherman’s Clothing Store in Hastings, the Clay County Treasurer’s Office, and Sandy Creek Public School for twenty-two years. Thelma was an active member of Our Lady of Assumption Church in Deweese, where she served on the Altar Society and taught CCD.
Thelma enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She was blessed with many talents. Thelma was an excellent cook and enjoyed gardening and canning. She always prepared enough food to feed an army. Thelma enjoyed reading, sewing, and camping in her spare time. Most will fondly remember her for her beautiful smile and loving heart. She embodied compassion, kindness, and love, and we will miss her dearly.
