THE FAMILY ALBUM: Remembering Thelma Daugherty Barmes

Thelma E. Daugherty Barmes ~ 24 July 1903 – 16 January 1957

Before the Noon hour on Tuesday, 15 January 1957, my great-grandmother, while en route to deliver milk, eggs, and homemade butter to her church’s shut-ins, skidded on the ice leading up the slight embankment to the railroad tracks and stalled.

While initial newspaper reports were hopeful, Thelma Barmes succumbed to internal injuries, nineteen hours following the accident, expiring at 5:05 PM the following day, Wednesday, 16 January 1957.

She was married to Virgil Barmes and they had four children, Leroy Barmes, Evelyn Barmes Smith, Norma Barmes Edwards Abbott, and Danny Barmes.
