Thelma Lee Lindsay Wissinger was born December 24, 1938 at Orla, MO to Durward and Grace Lindsay. After a long battle with cancer, she passed from this life to her eternal home on August 25, 2019 in Murfreesboro, TN at the age of 80 years.
She was preceded in death by her father and mother, her husband George Daniel Wissinger, and her brother, Dwayne Lindsay.

So sorry for your loss. Thelma was a great lady. I had time with her a few months back. As we visited, we together spoke of how we looked forward to Heaven and seeing our Lord.
Memories are good. From the old days of young girls at the MFA exchange in Lebanon.
Prayers of comfort to the family and close friends.
Dorothy( Patton) Brawley and husband Clifford.

Dan and Thelma were a special couple and Judy and I always enjoyed visiting with them. Dan was my guide to used bookstores the first time I came to Springfield years ago and I told Thelma I missed the dusty and cramped bookstores he took me to. It’s Dan I miss of course and now we miss Thelma too. God bless the family. Our hope is in the promise of our Lord of a new body in Heaven. Jerry and Judy Dickinson
