Thelma Burris was known by many names. By her patients at Northeast Medical Center, a spirited and truly selfless Care Partner of 44-years. By her husband, a devoted wife of 64-years and the woman who purchased the very first pair of new shoes he ever owned. By her 2 sons, a mother who worked tirelessly to provide a safe and happy home filled with boundless opportunities. And finally, by her grandkids, a grandmother that spoiled them endlessly while serving as a fortitude of lifelong wisdom. During her free time, Thelma enjoyed sewing, baking, and completing the occasional crossword puzzle.
