Thelma Best • July 22, 2017
Thelma Lowery Best returned to her Heavenly Father July 22, 2017. Mrs. Best exemplified Christian, selfless sisterhood, trusting God’s purpose for her life, never wavering. She cheerfully gave her life to her husband and children with total dedication. She especially loved expressing her artistic bent with sewing for her children and making custom furniture alongside her beloved husband, Paul, at Best Wood Products. Strangers became welcome neighbors in her home. She had strength and humor to the very end.
Thelma is survived by her five children, Marilyn Royals, Pamela McConkey, Barbara Dodgion, Michael Best, and Deborah D’Agostino, and eleven grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren. We will miss her with all our hearts, and look forward to reuniting with her and our beloved father in heaven.
The family will receive friends for visitation at Pensacola Memorial Gardens Funeral Home from 1:00-2:00pm Monday, July 31, 2017 with funeral service to follow at 2:00pm.
