Thelma Wilson Snead Obituary

Thelma W. Snead, 93, of Henrico, Va., passed away on Saturday, July 6, 2024. She is preceded into heaven by her first husband of 16 years, Fred L. Wilson Jr., and her second husband of 24 years, Woodrow A. Snead; her parents, Dewey and Essie Pugh; and several of her aunts, uncles, and close friends. Thelma is survived by her son, Jeffrey Wilson (Jodette); her grandchildren, Matthew Wilson (Laura), Melanie Whitehurst (Randall), and Michael Wilson (Deb); her great-grandchildren, Jacob Wilson (Zoe) Joshua Wilson, Joel Wilson, Brianna Whitehurst, Trey Whitehurst, Benton Cooper, and Levi Wilson; her great-great grandchild, Asher Wilson; and her step-great-grandchildren, Crew Cooper, Kai Cooper, Cameron Pollard, and Brody Pollard. Being an avid collector, Thelma particularly took a liking to elephant and angel figurines, always finding them wherever she travelled to. She managed to see all of the state capitols, including Hawaii, and all of the county seats in Virginia. Thelma and Fred were always on the go, trying to explore the world as much as they could, travelling to places such as Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, visiting the country sides to connect with Thelma’s family heritage. While Thelma and Fred loved traveling, one of their favorite activities to do was dancing, they absolutely loved square-dancing, line dancing, and round dancing. Thelma met the love of her life when she was 19 years old in Bedford, Va., Fred L. Wilson where they had their only son, Jeffrey Wilson. Fred, Jeffrey, and Thelma then relocated to Richmond, Va., where Fred unfortunately passed away at a young age. Later in life, she then met her second beloved husband, Woodrow A. Snead. Thelma and Woodrow created their own very special life together, seeing the world and creating precious memories together. Thelma was a beloved mother, wife, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother, and friend who will be missed by many. The family will receive friends from 2pm to 4pm and 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday, July 10 at Bliley’s- Staples Mill, 8510 Staples Mill Rd, where a funeral ceremony will be held 10am Thursday, July 11. A graveside service will be held 12pm, Friday, July 12 at Virginia Memorial Park, 11490 Forest Rd, Forest, Va., 24551. In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to Wave Church Legacy (https://wavechurch.com/legacy/) or to a charity of your choosing.
