Obituary

Thelma Elizabeth Bolling nee Roney was born on March 30, 1927, in Dinwiddie, VA to the late Johnnie H. Roney and the late Ella Yates. She departed this life on April 13, 2021, at home, surrounded by family. Educated in Dinwiddie Public Schools, she also attended Virgina State University in Ettrick, VA. Thelma joined Little Zion Baptist Church in Carson, VA, at an early age. It was in that church that she committed her life to Christ.

On December 17, 1946, Thelma was united in holy matrimony to the late Edward Bolling. Immediately, after they married, the couple moved to Mamaroneck, NY, where they resided for four years. They were members of First Baptist Church. In December 1950, the couple bought their first home located in Greenburgh, NY, where they resided for 30 years. The couple joined Union Baptist Church, where Thelma taught Sunday for many years and served as a deaconess. On August 1, 1980, Thelma & Edward purchased their second home, and moved to Chesterfield Co., VA. The couple became members of Morning Star Baptist Church, where Thelma regularly attended Sunday School and served as a deaconess until 2007. In 2008, she was one of 60 congregants who started The Star Fellowship Baptist Church in Richmond VA. Thelma moved back to Greenburgh in October 2014 to live with her two daughters and her granddaughter when her cognitive functioning began to decline.

Thelma worked at Sloanes Furniture Store in White Plains for nearly 30 years. She began her tenure as a switch board operator, but eventually became the office manager. She retired from Sears Service Department, Richmond VA in 1995.

Among Thelma’s greatest joys was serving in the church, being civically engaged, and encouraging and supporting family and friends. As a Greenburgh resident, she was an officer and active member of the Fairgrounds Neighborhood Association. For more than 50 years, she was a poll worker. And while her daughters were in elementary school, she was an active member of the Parent Teachers Association. Thelma enjoyed yardwork and gardening. She also enjoyed sewing and crocheting. Her favorite hobby, however, was reading. Thelma also loved young children and babies.

Thelma leaves her two daughters Imani (Shirley) Bolling, Gail Annette Bolling; her granddaughter Zuleka De Grace (Devin); and her great-grandchildren, Amayah De Grace, Noah De Grace, Judah De Grace, and Micah De Grace to cherish her memory. She also leaves three brothers: Mac Arthur Roney (Esther), Fred Roney (Mary Ann), and Donald Leon Roney (Glovenia). She is predeceased by 11 sisters and brothers and numerous nieces and nephews.

To the family,
Precious memories, how they linger, how they ever flood my souls...this describes how much I shall cherish my memories of “Mother Thelma Bolling.” Her love & concern for others extended far beyond her immediate family. I think of her as being a “Greenburgh/UBC, Village Mother.” There’s so much I could say...Imani & Gail, thank you for allowing me to be somewhat of an older/big sister, sharing a special bond & love with your mother. She was a dear friend to my mother. Whenever my mom visited my brother in VA, she & Mother Bolling either got together or spoke on the phone. I shall miss her beautiful, warm smile as she would greet me whenever & wherever we met. Imani & Gail, (and family) you were a extraordinary example of “love.” May the peace, love, and comfort of our loving and faithful Father God, continue to bless, keep and strengthen you.
Prayerfully submitted w/love,
Karen Thomas Jenkins

To the family of Deaconess Thelma Bolling,
On behalf of the Deaconess Ministry of Star Fellowship Baptist Church, we were sorry to hear of Mrs. Bolling's passing and we extend our deepest condolences. She was sorely missed when she left Richmond and relocated to White Plains, New York. Her actions and commitment left an indelible legacy within our Deaconess Ministry. She was extremely meticulous, dedicated to her duties and especially helpful to our new members. Thanks to the family for allowing us to be a part of her life for as long as we could.


Love,
Deaconess Ministry of Star Fellowship Baptist Church
