Thelma Louise Malone passed away on Monday, September 26, 2022, in Virginia Beach VA. She was born to the late Cora and Noah Seymore on June 21, 1926, in Southampton, NY.
At the age of 21, Thelma married the love of her life Lee Malone on November 14, 1947, and from that union, they were blessed with nine children: Patricia Malone, Lee Gary Jr. Malone (Linda), Donald Malone (Marian), Noah Malone (Betty), David Malone, Michael Malone, JoAnn Blackshire-Little (Derryck), Wendy Malone-Fulton and Gail Wilkins (George). Thelma stayed at home to care for her children but in her late 40’s, she made the decision to get her drivers’ license and ventured out as a domestic housekeeper.
If you knew Thelma, you knew her greatest love was her love for the Lord, who was first and foremost in her life. It was at the Bridgehampton Church of God in Christ where she accepted the Lord as her savior and was a very active member. Thelma gladly accepted every responsibility and never turned down anything she was asked to do in the church. She was the first President of the Usher Board, the first Church Secretary, President of the Jr. Choir, President of the Jr. Sunday School, a Deaconess and Missionary of the church. As the Church Secretary, Thelma was very thorough, making sure the books were accurate. If she was off by just a penny, she would stay up all night until she found it, and trust and believe, she found it. Thelma was an honest woman and lived her life with dignity and integrity.
To continue her spiritual growth and knowledge of the Bible, Thelma went to Seminary school in Brooklyn, NY where she graduated at the top of her class.
In 2009, Thelma took a big leap of faith and moved to Virginia Beach, VA with a priority of finding a place to worship. She visited several churches, but it wasn’t until she attended a service at Mount Lebanon Baptist Church in Chesapeake, VA where she made her commitment to join. Under the leadership of Bishop K. W. Brown, Thelma faithfully attended Sunday service and Wednesday night Bible Study. And, when she was unable to attend, she enjoyed watching the Bishop virtually.
Thelma enjoyed vacationing with her family in her hometown of Southampton, NY and most recently, a trip to NC where she laughed and sang with her grandchildren.
Predeceased by her husband, Lee Malone, sisters Mattie Neville, Marion Milken and brother Lewis Seymore, Thelma leaves to rejoice in her Homegoing: (9) children, (22) grandchildren, (41) great grandchildren, (4) great, great grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
Viewing will be on Monday, October 3, 2022, from 10:00 AM – 10:50 AM followed by a service at 11:00 AM at Mount Lebanon Baptist Church, 215 Las Gaviotas Blvd., Chesapeake, VA 23322. A graveside service will be held Friday, October 7, 2022, at 11:00 AM at Calverton National Cemetery, 210 Princeton Blvd, Calverton, NY 11933. Condolences may be left for the family below.
