In memory of
Thelma Dain Senter
Thelma Dain Senter, peacefully departed this life into the loving arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Friday May 8th, 2020 at the age of 90. Thelma was born in Jacksonville, TX on November 5, 1929 to Ernest and Margie Pond. She grew up in Cherokee County, on a dirt road called “Brown Town”, in the small community of New Emmaus. She attended New Summerfield schools. Thelma met the love of her life, Albert Benjamin Senter, at the young age of 16 while working at the movie theater in Troup, TX. Soon after, they would marry and she moved to Whitehouse, TX where he was born and raised. Thelma and Bennie raised their family of four in the small town of Whitehouse, TX and were members of the First Baptist Church in Whitehouse. Thelma graduated from Texas Beauty Academy in Tyler, TX in 1951. She worked as a beautician all of her life and ran a successful business called Whitehouse Hair Designer Salon until she retired. She loved to work in the yard, tend to her flowers, travel, laugh, and found crocheting relaxing. Thelma’s biggest legacy in life was her family, whom she absolutely adored. She would do anything for anyone especially her family and she had the favor of God to do all of those things. Thelma was preceded in death by her loving husband, Albert Benjamin Senter, her parents Ernest and Margie Pond, and her brother Ernest Pond Jr. Thelma leaves behind her four children Bennie Gerald Senter and wife Sharon, Billy Dean Senter, Judy (Senter) Rieken, and Ralph and Peggy (Senter) Villagomez, 6 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
