Martha Helen Trevathan Threlkeld, 88, Little Rock, formerly of Henderson

 

flowerHENDERSON, KY - Martha Helen Trevathan Threlkeld, 88, Little Rock, formerly of Henderson, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011.

She was born Aug. 1, 1923, in Henderson County.

Martha devoted her life to making a wonderful, warm and loving home for her husband and family. She loved to prepare family dinners and was a superb cook and enjoyed baking. A fond memory for her grandchildren was annual Christmas cookie decorating in her kitchen during the holidays. After many years living in California, she and Warren returned to the Southern region to be close to family. This enabled them to take cherished trips in their RV, several with their grandchildren. They also enjoyed traveling abroad and camping with lifelong friends from California. In her free time, she made beautiful and creative quilts and sewed for her children and grandchildren.

Martha was a member of First Baptist Church Little Rock but was always involved in the local church activities wherever she lived.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, Harvey Warren Threlkeld, who passed away in 2009; and her parents, Hubert C. and Ella Armstrong Trevathan, both of Henderson.

Survivors include two daughters, Betty Wold and her husband, Bob, of Minnesota and Jeanette Wagner and her husband, Ken, of Maumelle, Ark.; one sister, Betty Jean Jeter of Boonville, Ind.; two grandchildren, Matthew Philip Wagner and his wife, Tresa, of Springfield, Mo., and Jennifer Michelle Craig and her husband, Randy, of Maumelle; two great-grandchildren, Samuel Warren Craig and Miles Dickson Wagner; and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.

The family wishes to thank the caregivers of Maumelle Health and Rehab for Martha's excellent care in past years and Hospice Home Care's loving attention in recent days.

Graveside services will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Fernwood Cemetery in Henderson.

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of contributions to First Baptist Church, 62 Pleasant Valley Drive, Little Rock, AR 72212 or to First Baptist Church, 307 Center St., Henderson, KY 42420.

Arrangements are made by Little Rock Funeral Home.
