Thelma Maxine Haas Wymore


Thelma Maxine (Haas) Wymore, 93, of Johnson City, TN, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on March 6, 2017, just weeks after the death of her beloved husband of 71 years, Dr. Leonard G. Wymore, January 19th. She was born on May 2, 1923 in Kansas City, MO to Charles and Flora Haas. She was the only daughter in a family of nine children. She is survived by three children, Kathy (Bud) Downs, Don (Donna) Wymore and Fred Wymore; five grandchildren, Christopher (Astrid) Downs, Brian (Anne) Wymore, Lori Downs Fenn, Bradley (Felicia) Wymore, and Eric Downs; five great-grandchildren, Milo and Sydney Fenn, Sebastian and Annika Downs, and Molly Wymore; one brother, Lloyd (Karen) Haas of Augusta, KS.
Thelma grew up in Lawrence, KS. She attended Manhattan (KS) Christian College and Butler University School of Religion in Indianapolis, IN. She was very supportive of her husband's ministries and worked as a secretary from 1967 to 1969 for the North American Christian Convention, which Leonard directed. Thelma will be remembered for her hospitality, her story-telling, her pursuit of family genealogy, her constant study of the Bible, her many hand-made gifts, and her love for her family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Leonard & Thelma Wymore Scholarship Fund at Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan College, TN 37682.
A memorial service will be held at Emmanuel Christian Seminary Chapel, 1 Walker Drive, Johnson City, TN, Saturday, May 20th, at 2:00 P.M.
