    • Birth: IGI

      Thelma, the seventh child and daughter number five was perfect in every way when born, but was so premature that her hair, her fingernails, and toenails had not yet developed. The oven door would become her incubator. She was placed on a pillow and wrapped in cotton and turned ever so often. While her mother sat next to her, she would hestitate to breathe and heart seemed to temporarily stop, then would start once again. It was not known for several weeks if she would survive.

      At about the age of three, she experienced a painful and tragic time. It was wash day, and the last of the clothes had been taken from the wash boiler. Lillian and Verona had placed the boiler on the floor. The latest baby was crying and Lillian lifted the baby into her arms. Thelma decided to go to her mother; somehow; she passed the boiler, she stumbed and sat down in the boiling water. As she screamed Verona grabbed her. She screamed in pain and squirming, fell back into the water once again.

      Verona pulled her out, only to lose her grip once again, Thelma going into the water for the third time. When they finally pulled her out, they covered her with soda and various home remedies. She recovered, but with scars, which were luckily hidden by her clothes.
