Thelma Mary Corey
It is with great sadness that the family shares the news of the passing of Thelma Corey
(nee Ball) on Fri., April 21, 2107 in Winchester. She was 85.
Thelma, daughter of Celon and Beatrice Ball (nee Read), is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Arthur Corey, and children Benjamin, Shawn, Lance, Joyce (Darrell Douglas), Rodney (Sue), and Gail (Thomas) Bailey. She will be missed by six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
She spent her life caring for others, first as a wife and mother, and later as a Red Cross Homemaker, providing care to many of the elderly in the village of Winchester. In her stay at the Dundas Manor, where she lived for the past year, Thelma always looked out for her fellow residents and her husband, Arthur, who resides there as well. In her final days, she was surrounded by the family she loved, all of who will miss her deeply.
The family will receive friends at the Winchester Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 472 Main St., on Fri., April 28 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 pm. A memorial service will be held in the chapel on Sat., April 29 at 2 pm followed by a reception at Winchelsea Events.
Donations in Thelma’s memory may be made in support of the Dundas Manor Activity Fund.
