Thelma Pickett Obituary

Thelma Kathleen Pickett, born on July 18, 1945, in Roswell, New Mexico, peacefully departed from this world on February 3, 2024, surrounded by her entire family in the comfort of her home. She was the cherished daughter of John Henry and Thelma (McCarty) Lock.

Thelma's journey through life was beautifully intertwined with the love story she shared with her devoted husband, Bobby Loyd Pickett. They celebrated 60 remarkable years of marriage since their union on May 31, 1963, creating a legacy of love and commitment.

A beacon of warmth and love, Thelma was blessed with four children, Ronda Picciolo, Anthony and April Pickett, Chari and Johnny Anders and Renee Pickett.  Her family extended to include eight grandchildren, David and Connie, Amanda, Christie, Casey, Chris and Paige, Dallas James, Brooklyn, and Gavin. Thelma's joy multiplied with the addition of 20 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren, each one a testament to the enduring love that flowed through her lineage.

Known to all as "Granny," Thelma possessed the greatest heart, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of family, friends, and neighbors alike. Her love knew no bounds, and she was a source of comfort, offering hugs and kisses generously. Thelma's love extended beyond her own, and she became a beloved figure to all who knew her.

Thelma found joy in simple pleasures, cherishing moments spent playing bingo and attending church services. Her nightly ritual of expressing love to her dear ones and wishing them sweet dreams was a testament to her nurturing spirit.

Thelma was preceded in death by her parents, John Henry and Thelma, as well as her brothers Bill Burch and Loyd Burch, and sisters Virginia Hill and Mary Davis. Though she leaves a void in their hearts, Thelma's memory will forever be cherished by her surviving siblings, Jesse and Sheila Lock, and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A celebration of Thelma's life will be held to honor the legacy of a remarkable woman who touched the lives of many. May she rest in eternal peace, her memory living on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to be part of her extraordinary journey.
