Peace Statement on the Passing of Thelma Crump Wilson

Delegate Christopher K. Peace was saddened to hear the news of the passing of Mrs. Thelma Crump Wilson.  Mrs. Crump Wilson peacefully passed on June 17 at the age of 98.  She was always active in her community; an active member of Ruritan, Rotary and the Lions club.  She strongly supported historic preservation efforts and amassed a vast collection of historical documents and objects which map the history of New Kent County.  For over 30 years she sponsored the Thelma Crump Wilson Citizenship Award given each year to an outstanding student at New Kent High School.  She recently published her memoirs; a book entitled “Thelma Rose.”  She will be deeply missed; she was a strong woman who is recognized in her community for making it a better place.  My thoughts and prayers are with the Crump family and the New Kent community.
