Dolores Mae Thomas

Events

Dolores Mae Kelly was born Sept. 4, 1932, the daughter of William L. and Mae Cecilia (Ast) Kelly in Yukon, Okla., and passed from this life on March 22, 2019, in her home with family by her side.
Dolores was a member of the First Families of the Twin Territories, raised and educated in Yukon, Okla. She married the love of her life, Robert L. Thomas, on Aug. 28, 1954. The couple had four daughters, Cathy, Janet, Jennifer and Ellen. Dolores spent many years as a homemaker and mother who took pride in her ability to cook gourmet meals, sew matching outfits for her girls, and take care of the household. She would schedule school, church and activities as well as play tennis, volunteer and participate in multiple community organizations. As the girls got older, Dolores decided to take college classes and also obtained her realtor's license. After a brief stint as a realtor, she chose to work with Bob at his architectural firm.
Dolores enjoyed her numerous friends, travel, bridge (on multiple days every week), Revidere Book Club, entertaining, flower guild, and participating in the Edmond/OKC ConKerr Cancer pillow case chapter. She was a very giving and fun person with a bright smile on her face and her arms held open for a hug and kiss whenever she saw her family.
Dolores is survived by her four children, Cathy Oster (and Joe) of Sugarland, Texas, Janet Caffey of Edmond, Jennifer Creech (and Randy) of Frisco, Texas, and Ellen Wells (and Chris) of Coppell, Texas; nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Robert L.Thomas; her parents; and sisters, Jean L. Mann, Jane R. Horne, and Nancy Shehan.
Services will be 1 p.m., Friday, March 29, 2019, at the St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church, 14700 N. May Ave., OKC. A reception in the Parish Hall will follow the service. Condolences may be made to the family online at www.matthewsfuneralhome.com.
