Thelma Mary Hindley (Carberry)

July 29, 1928 - December 17, 2020


Thelma Mary Hindley (nee Carberry), passed away on Thursday, December 17th 2020 at the age
of 92, in Invermere, B.C, with her loving daughter Louise by her side.

Thelma was born on July 29,1928 to parents Harvey and Ann Carberry (nee Francis), on their
farm near Landis, Saskatchewan. Thelma was the second eldest of six children, Floyd, Eileen,
Lorne, Shirley and Dale. She loved her childhood and family and still reminisced about skating,
baseball games and picnics on the farm. She was especially proud that she and her siblings
remained so close all of her life.

At the young age of sixteen, Thelma left the farm and went to study in Regina, Saskatchewan
and became a teacher, specializing in Math and English. She taught for two years in Ruthilda
and two years in Sonningdale, Sask. She loved teaching and shared many fond memories of
teaching all grades in one classroom. Thelma married James Cody Hindley on October 7, 1950.
They raised four children together, Jerry, George, Bill and Louise on their farm near Biggar, Sask
as well as Saskatoon, North Battleford, and Jackfish Lake. Thelma and her husband Jim were
always involved in community and volunteered in many organizations, and felt it so important
in their lives to help and give to those less fortunate. Upon retiring, Thelma and Jim lived in
Victoria B.C, Whiterock B.C, Calgary Alberta, and eventually Invermere, B.C, where she was very
active in the Columbia Garden Village bridge club, puzzle room, knitting club, and warmly
welcoming and including every new resident.

Jim and Thelma’s love for travel and learning took them around the world, always planning
their next trip.

Thelma was a teacher, farmer, wife, homemaker, volunteer, but most of all, a wonderful person
and Mother.

Left to mourn, are her children George (Donna Jean), Bill (Corrinne), Louise (Jurgen Striegel);
grandchildren Tara, James, Kai, Chase, Aiden; great grandchildren Aiden, Aeris, Janessa; her
siblings, Eileen Archdekin, Shirley Forbes, Dale (Jean) Carberry, sister-in-law Margaret (Lorne
Carberry), and numerous nieces and nephews. Thelma was predeceased by her beloved
husband Jim, after 62 years of marriage, son Jerry (Pat), her parents Ann and Harvey Carberry,
brothers Floyd and Lorne, brothers-in-law Tom and Charles, sister-in-law Marybeth and Joe.
She will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Special thanks to Dr. Brown and the staff at the Invermere Hospital, and Lorraine at Mark’s
