Della Thomas Scrapbook

Della 1950



Della Tharp Thomas was born March 31, 1880 in Greenup, Il.  She was the daughter of Reuben Nelson Tharp and Phoebe Ann Glenn.  She married Benjamin Franklin (Frank) Thomas on October 8, 1899 in Greenup.  They had seven children, Gerald, Kenneth, Thelma, Sylvia, Iva, Franklin and Lucille. 

Frank died on May 6, 1949 and Della sold their farm and moved into Greenup.  She was very independent and lived by herself until she was 93.  She died January 3, 1976 and is buried in the Greenup Cemetery with her husband.

Della was a kind and caring person and is remembered fondly by her grandchildren.  She had a hobby of cutting out newspaper clippings.  I have indexed a book that she had many pasted into.  Many of these clippings were about family and friends but some are just things that interested her.
