In memory of

   Thalia Eads


Mrs. Thalia J. Eads, age 76, is now in the arms of her savior Jesus Christ who sustained her during her brief battle with cancer. On Friday, July 31, 2009, she was welcomed into Heaven by her daughter, Kathryn Lamoreaux, and her brother, Fredrick Brown. At the age of 10 her father died while fighting during WWII. She changed schools many times but was able to graduate and attend some college classes. Thalia was a role model to her children, and her role as the main mama to the Mambo Mamas was a cherished one. Family was very important to her, and the biggest joy in her life. She cheered them all on with her wisdom and love, and was their biggest fan. Thalia gave them strength, laughter, prayers, and taught them how to forgive and accept. A child of God, she was at peace about going to meet her Savior. She was loved for her testimony, her enthusiasm, and her strong faith. She mentored many people and gave of herself in so many ways to God's work here on earth. Thalia was the church secretary at St. Stephen Lutheran Church and prior to that she was secretary at E. Leonard CRC for 15 years. She really enjoyed being secretary at St. Stephen Lutheran Church where she served as a ministry person and also worked in the nursery and library. Many will recall her gracious smile when greeting others who attended the services. Thalia also taught bridge to the Northview Senior Citizens. Left behind to deeply miss her and her beautiful eyes are her husband of 36 years, Alvin Eads; her children,
Debbie (Doug) Horn, Sharon (Don) Straight, Dan (Kathy) Lamoreaux, David (Barbi) Strong, Joanne (William) Bouwer, Greg (Adrianna) Eads, Sheryl (Dave) Spidel, Kevin Eads, Brian (DeeCee) Eads; 24 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; brothers and sister, Sandra Starlin, Don (Deanna) Brown, Betty (Fred) Brown, Nelson Brown; her family at St. Stephen's Lutheran Church; and many other special friends. The service for Mrs. Eads will be at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday at St. Stephen Lutheran Church with Pastor Diane Konynenbelt officiating. Interment will be in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider St. Stephen Lutheran Church Missionary Fund or the American Cancer Society.
