Obituary: Thelma A. O’Dell (Oct. 26, 1923 – March 13, 2013)

Thelma A. O’Dell, 89, passed away on March 13, 2013. Thelma was born October 26, 1923, in Banning, Calif. She graduated from high school in 1941 in Corona, Calif. Thelma was employed by the State of California for many years and worked several years at the Del Norte County Recorder’s Office.

Thelma was a strong and independent matriarch in her family. She was much loved by her friends and family, including a large extended family of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Thelma is survived by her daughters, Carol Ormson of Wisconsin, Sandra Inman and son Richard and wife Leslie Bridgeman, all of Crescent City.

She was preceded in death by her siblings, Andrew and Alvin Jellsey, Gladys George and her husband David, as well as son Ronald Blair, son-in-law Doug Ormson and daughter-in-law Pamela Bradshaw.

There will not be a memorial service. In lieu of flowers, the family asked that donations be made to the American Cancer Society, 1301 Northcrest Drive, Crescent City, CA 95531.

Please sign the family’s online guestbook at wiersmortuary.com.
