Nellie Mae Thurman, 87, passed away October 30, 2017 at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home in Olathe, KS, where she was recuperating from a broken hip.
Nellie was born November 25, 1929, to William and Elsie Campbell in Valley Falls, KS and relocated to Lenexa in her teenage years. She graduated from Shawnee Mission High School in 1947. Nellie was married to her husband who survives her, Robert G. Thurman, on July 1, 1949, and they had five children: Cathleen, Richard, Terence, Kenneth and Timothy, three grand-children, and three great-grandchildren. Cathleen precedes her in death.
Nellie was a very busy homemaker, raising five children and Bob. She was also active in the Lutheran church....six churches, in fact. (Bob's employer relocated him numerous times.) They are presently members of Advent Lutheran Church in Olathe, KS.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations would be appreciated to Advent Lutheran Church.
