She was born August 26, 1917, in Combs, WV a daughter of the late George Washington Clark and Tressa Jane McVay Clark. Thirteen brothers and sisters preceded her in death.
Thelma was a devout Christian and well known for the beautiful quilts that she made. She fondly remembered having a quilt show for her 93rd birthday displaying 93 quilts. Over 400 people attended. It truly was a celebration of her legacy.

She was an avid Cincinnati Reds fan. She never missed watching the games and called every player by name. She was a charter member of Souls Harbor Baptist Church. She attended Ingram Ridge School in Ritchie County.

She was very proud of her 8th grade certificate. She would tell her children that they had to walk to school and it was very cold in the winter. If they were lucky, they got a ride by a horse pulled wagon. She could work crossword puzzles faster than most.

On June 1, 1935, she married Clyde William Scott. They had 8 children. She is survived by Terry Dailey, Sue Faught, Sharon (Doug) Miller, Gloria (Jerry) Lewis, Maxine (Ken) Neville and Lois (Frank) Mahoney.
