Obituary

Thelma Lenore (Sowders) Prince, age 90, of Bloomington, Indiana passed away peacefully at her residence on Thursday, March 12, 2020. She was born on June 20, 1929 in Lawrence County, Indiana to Orville and Pearl (Arthur) Sowders. Thelma married Ancel “Yank” Prince on January 14, 1946. She loved church and attended South Union Christian Church in Bloomington. She met weekly with a small group at the church. Thelma loved her family dearly and prayed for them all daily. She loved having family dinners, birthdays, and spending holidays together. She was very loving, compassionate, and caring. Thelma enjoyed playing cards, especially Euchre. She was a member of a monthly euchre club. She enjoyed keeping track with everyone on Facebook.
Thelma is survived by her daughters, Judy Sherfield (Frank), Kay Martin (Leonard), and Joyce Abram, grandchildren, Jeffery Burton, Jerry Burton (Darlene), Dale Terrell (Jeanna), Terri Nowling (Scott), Reneé Alfonso, Anthony Martin (Elizabeth), Michelle Caldwell (Darin), Jeneé Trimble, and Jason Abram (Bobbi), 28 great-grandchildren, 29 great-great-grandchildren, sister, Sue Judah, several nieces and nephews, and sister-in-law, Darlene Sowder.
Thelma was preceded in death by her husband, parents, grandson, Josh Burton, granddaughter, Richelle Leonard, brothers, Wayne Sowders, Lloyd Sowders, and Robert Sowder, and sister, Oweedah “Sissy” Butcher.
Visitation will be from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM on Monday, March 16, 2020 at The Funeral Chapel of Powell and Deckard, 3000 E. Third Street Bloomington, Indiana.
Funeral services will be Tuesday at The Funeral Chapel, with burial to follow at Valhalla Memory Gardens in Bloomington.

Due to the CDC Mass Gathering recommendation of no more than 50 people in a room at a time we have made the difficult decision to have Thelma Prince’s Funeral Service be restricted to immediate family only. While this is not our ideal situation we ask that you understand we are all new at this reaction to the pandemic situation at hand.
