So sorry to learn of Thelma’s passing.  I can remember all our families at cookouts and all growing up together.  She was so thoughtful when our mother passed, always stopping in to check on Goddie.  The best thing is that they are all together now.

Nick,Peter and all of the Zoretic Family,I’m so very sorry for your loss. She was a very wonderful and unique person. I cleaned for her for a few years, she was always very kind to me. I remember one time taking her out to Park City to take an item back,they tried giving her a hard time. But she stood her ground and got her money back. I so happy to have had the privilege to have known her, she will be missed.
