Theda House Cody Obituary
Theda House Cody, 89, passed away Tuesday, April 5, 2011, at her home with family and friends at her side.
She was born June 24, 1921, in Koshkonong, Mo., to Crayton and Lora Carner-Ellison. The family relocated to the Cloudcroft area in 1935.
Theda retired in 1976 after 26 years as evening chief operator at Mountain Bell Telephone Company. After retirement she kept busy with her sewing, working in her garden and going to the horse races.
She will be missed by all who know and loved her, and she was also known for her wonderful sense of humor. She was a loving and devoted daughter, wife, sister, mother, grandmother and great-great-grandmother. Her love will always be our guide, and though we cannot see her, she is always at our side. She leaves us with a legacy of beautiful memories. We shall have a new angel in heaven.
She was preceded in death by her parents; first husband, Paul ""Buster"" House; second husband, Allan Cody; son Marvin House; sister Vinetta Goss; and brothers, Wince, Linn and Arthur Ellison.
Theda is survived by her sister Pauline ""Polly"" Duncan, of Alamogordo; son Harold House and his wife, Bennie, of Alamogordo; daughter Cleta Sohn and her husband, John Seiwald, of Westminster, Colo.; daughter-in-law Mildred House, of Castle Rock, Colo.; and eight grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
Graveside services will be conducted at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 9, 2011, at Monte Vista Cemetery with Elwyn Roach officiating.
Pallbearers include Benny House, Mark Seiwald, Josh Seiwald, Dean McDonald, Ben Farrer and Gene Harshey. Honorary pallbearers include Jimmy Bridge and Joey Whitted.
