THOMAS Mary 1918 – 2007 It is with deep sadness the family of Mary Thomas announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Mom was born July 29, 1918 in the Three Hills district to Sam and Olga Abramenko. In 1942 she married Clay Thomas and they farmed in the Ghost Pine District until 1986 when they moved to Three Hills. Many people were touched by Mom's gentle and kind manner. She definitely saw only the positive side of life. In memory of our mother, please say a kind word, do a good dead or give someone you love a hug. That was our Mom. Left to cherish her memory are her children Roy Thomas (Alexandra) of Calgary, Myrna Matthews (Larry) of Calgary, Gloria Smith (Jim) of Moose Jaw, Lyla Foster (Norm) of Red Deer as well as eight grandchildren, six great grandchildren, one sister Olla Trentham of Three Hills and one brother Ernie Abramenko of Ft. McLeod. Mom was predeceased by her husband Clay in 2001, her brother Fred in 1968 and brother George in 1932. Funeral services for the late Mary Thomas will be held at the Bethel Evangelical Missionary Church, 123 – 4 Avenue S, Three Hills, Alberta on Thursday, May 17, 2007 at 1 pm. A special "Thank You" to the Olds Long Term Care Centre for the comfort they gave our mom in the past year.
