Thelma Craig Obituary
Craig, Thelma

Thelma Craig, 94, beloved mother, was called to her eternal resting place on February 3, 2016. She entered this world on November 24, 1921 in Bradley, Oklahoma, born to N.B. and Anna Lou Tolman.

She is survived by her two children, Dennis Craig and wife Kaaren and Margaret Eitzen; five grandchildren, Kala Craig-Smith, Brian Craig, Zachary Eitzen, Eva Roman and Aaron Craig; eight great-grandchildren and her brother, N.B. Tolman.

She is preceded in death by her husband, James D. Craig.

Thelma was an accomplished seamstress and needlework artist. She won many awards due to her talents. She was the past president of the New Mexico Homemakers Extension Club and traveled to many conferences throughout the country and Germany. Thelma was also known for her amazing cooking skills - especially for her perfect pies, which she taught each one of her great-grandchildren how to make.

She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.
