Elvenia L. Thomas was born November 24, 1918 and went to be with the Lord on May 1, 2017. Mother Thomas was born in Sherman, Texas to George Sr. and Corneilus Wilson who were farmers. She was the youngest 17 children. Even at a young age Mother Thomas was at ease speaking her mind to whoever would listen, earning her the nickname of "Baby Woman" from her family.
Mother Thomas earned a nursing degree in the 1930's and worked as a nurse in various hospitals. In 1942, Mother Thomas married Mozell Thomas and eventually moved from Texas to Denver, Colorado. Upon retirement, she worked as a secretary and accountant for the True Faith Church in Denver. She also served on True Faith's Board of Directors.
A devout Christian, Mother Thomas was a member and an evangelical missionary for over 50 years for the Church of God in Christ. Mother Thomas loved the Lord and God's people. She loved to pray, read her bible and teach women of all ages how to have faith in God. Her faith in God helped her through difficult times during the illness and passing of her husband Mozell in 1994 and the loss of her beloved nephew, Eugene Sims.
During her life Mother Thomas could always be counted on to give you her honest opinion; many times with a smile or a direct look. Those close to her will miss her quick wit and mischievous giggle/chuckle. She was much loved by her nephew William "Fred" Rhine of Sherman, Texas. Mother Thomas is survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and grand nieces and nephews in Texas and Oklahoma.
Mother Thomas's favorite quote: "I am living now to live again"
