Obituary

Ireene Tolbert Thomas, 98

Ireene Mabel Tolbert Thomas, 98, passed away peacefully in the care of Pathways Hospice at Lutheran Village of Ashland on Tuesday, April 9, 2019.

Ireene was born February 28, 1921, in Wellsburg, WV, the cherished first child and sole daughter of Earl O. and Edna M. (Gillis) Tolbert. She received her baccalaureate degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College and became a member of Sigma Delta Chi (Alpha Xi Delta) sorority there.

Ireene married the love of her life, James Egbert Thomas, Jr., on January 22, 1944, and their marriage endured until his death in 1999. She was a loving mother to her two sons, James Edwin and Jeffrey Alan. Ireene was a proud homemaker and worked in various businesses in Ashland, as well as being deeply engaged for many years in fundraising, community-enrichment activities, and hospital volunteering. She was a member of the First Methodist Church of Ashland, The Emeritus Club of West Virginia Wesleyan College, and the Ashland Symphony Women’s League.

Ireene was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Edwin J. Tolbert, her husband, and both her sons. She is survived by her daughters-in-law, Darcy (Jim) Thomas and Becky (Jeff) Thomas; three granddaughters, Wendy (Travis) Gates, Chrystal Hood, and Megan (Branden) Wilson; six great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and her sister-in-law, Patricia P. Tolbert.
