Obituary for Thelma Pendell

June 14, 1927 - October 5, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 92


Thelma Pendell, age 92, passed away on Saturday, October 5, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas in the loving care of her children after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was born June 14, 1927 (Flag Day!) to Frances Adelia Worthington and Anthony Thomas Ladelfa in El Paso, Texas.

The comfort and care of her family were the top priority throughout her life. This love and caring spilled over on to her many friends and neighbors. Thelma had an unwavering faith in God. The first hours of each morning were devoted to her Bible studies. This dedication was a huge part of her life. Creativity was another one of her passions. Art, painting, numerous crafts, cooking, and gardening all brought her so much joy and satisfaction. There were never enough hours in a day to accomplish all she wanted to do.

For the last two years, Thelma lived at Watercrest at Dominion Independent Living (Discovery Village at Dominion). She blossomed there with many new activities, Bible studies, socializing, and the new, lovely friendships she formed.

She was preceded in death by her parents and husband of 72 years, Edward Pendell. Thelma is survived by children, Pam Cage (Claude), Jacqueline Lee, Deborah Glenn (Mike), Edward M. Pendell (Angie), Karen Ritchie, and Sharon Mahan (Darryl); grandchildren, Lesley Gibson, Cheryl Boriack, Bob Cage II, Jeff Lee, Jason Lee, Natasha Lee, Clint Pendell, John Ritchie, Christopher Ritchie, and Wade Mahan; as well as 11 great grandchildren and numerous other relatives and extended family members. We are so lucky to have been blessed having our mother for so many years!

The family wishes to thank her many doctors for their care and compassion; Dr. Trakhtenbroit, Dr. Rosenberg, Dr. Mieras, Dr. Lewis, Dr. Delay, and especially Dr. Lyons.

12:00 P.M.

Interment will follow in Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a charity of your choice.
