  • Thelma Agnes Hart, 92, formerly of Fulmer St. in Mohawk, NY, passed away on Friday, September 28, 2012, at the Presbyterian Home in New Hartford, where she had been a resident for the past two years.
    Thelma was born in Ilion, NY, September 3, 1920, the daughter of the late Charles and Edna (Hempstead) Reynolds. She was a 1938 graduate of Ilion Central School and worked as an assembler at the Remington Arms Co. through the years of WW II. On June 24, 1944, Thelma married Edmund J. "Ned" Hart; he passed away on June 8, 2011. After the birth of her twin boys, she left the war effort workforce and became a dedicated and active housewife, aunt and grandmother for the rest of her years. Thankfully, her skills and love of cooking were joyfully shared and will be passed on through many generations.
    Thelma is survived by her children, Brian (Julie) Hart, of Honeoye Falls, NY, Cathy (Dennis) Prosser, of Walworth, NY, and Tom Hart, of Truxton, NY; grandchildren, Tammy (Joseph) Dyer, Tina (Scotty) Smith, Jed Hart and Matti Hart; and great-grandchildren, Jeremy, Joseph and Zachary. She also leaves two sisters-in-law, Sophie and Virginia Reynolds, as well as several special people that were close to her throughout her life, Beverly (Herbert - d. April 2012) McKinney, Barbara Wedow, Nancy F. Hart, Judy Dutcher, Lisa (Terry) Stanley and their children, Sierra and Lorelei. She also leaves several nieces, nephews and cousins. Thelma was predeceased by her infant son, David; brothers, George, Fred and Robert (Leola) Reynold, and sisters, Arlene (Gordon) Fike, Iola (Jim) Stephens and Adelaide (Ivan) Bunce.
    Thelma was a member of the Mohawk Blessed Sacrament Church and their Rosary Society.
