Earlene Thomas, 76, Adair Co., KY (1946-2022)
On Thursday, September 15, 2022, the Death Angel peacefully claimed Earlene Willis Thomas at her home, surrounded by loved ones. She was 76 years old.
The funeral service will be held at 1pmCT on Sunday, September 25, 2022, at Grissom-Martin Funeral Home, 200 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY, with Rev. K.F. Tuck delivering the Eulogy. Burial will follow in Forest Lawn Cemetery.
Visitation is requested after 5pmCT on Saturday.
She was born August 15, 1946 in Adair County to the late Earl and Jennie Vee Ewing Willis. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two sisters, Kay Willis Scott, and Clara Lee Flowers, one brother, Ralph Willis.
Earlene was raised with great family traditions. So, it's so befitting to say that her and her late sister Clara reminded us as well as the other siblings - the true meaning "God moves in mysterious ways". Determination to make it to their final "Willis Pig Roast", and no one was stopping that.
She attended Jackman High and later received her Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) training in Bowling Green, Ky. She retired from Phillip Morris in Louisville, Ky, and moved back to Columbia. She continued her journey working for Fruit of the Loom/ OshKosh B'Gosh, and Amazon.
She accepted Christ at an early age, she was a member of First Baptist Church, Columbia where she served in roles as Sunday School Superintendent, and a member of the Senior Choir. She was truly a people person, and enjoyed life to the fullest.
Honorary: Charles Willis, Doug Crowley, Joseph (Tiny) Smith, Vince Willis, Vincent Sanders
