Thelma Baldwin Obituary

Thelma Jane “TJ” Baldwin was born August 7, 1935, to Elmer and Doris Miller in Williamsport, PA. She gained her wings on November 5, 2023, while surrounded by family. A Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Friday November 17, 2023, at First United Methodist Church. Interment will follow at Eternal Hills Memorial Park.

Growing up, she and her sisters were always playing practical jokes on each other, such as moving an outhouse in the middle of the night or putting spiders and snakes under each other’s pillows. In her middle teens, her family moved to California where she eventually met the love of her life, Neal, whom she was married to for 70 years before he preceded her in death.

She was a military wife and enjoyed living all over at Neal’s many duty stations. There were always stories to tell about the places she’d get to live during his military career; such as: monkey chasing her daughter Linda down the street in the Philippines, their kids playing on the runway in Texas, and their oldest son trying to see under hula skirts while lying in a bush in Hawaii. As her children got older and had their own children, they did even more family activities: lots of trips to the lake teaching the grandchildren how to crawdad fish and camping trips with lots of family entertainment. Her favorite times were with family. Even staying home and playing games. They were her greatest joy.

She believed in helping others. She was always volunteering somewhere. She volunteered for the Senior Center and the guild at Sky Lakes hospital for many years. She belonged to the Rebecca’s and the Grange because these clubs were always helping different parts of the community. She loved being a smart reader volunteer.

TJ was preceded in death by her husband Neal Baldwin; oldest son Donald Baldwin; parents Doris & Elmer Miller; and sisters Esther and Lila.

She is survived by son Ronald Mark Baldwin (Monica); daughter Linda Breeden (John); daughter-in-law Kathy Baldwin; 8 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren; and 8 great great grandchildren.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
