Carolyn Jane Mabbitt Thurman passed away July 6, 2017, in Mesa, Arizona.
She was born Oct. 31, 1939. She was loved by her family.
She showed love differently to each person: whether it was playing cards with in-laws or grandchildren, writing letters to those who just needed someone to talk to, or just providing a helping hand. She enjoyed music: playing many instruments (marimba, guitar, and organ to name a few), singing with her sister at home, and at church. She gave that same love of music to her children. She held to her faith in God and enjoyed sharing it.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert; her parents, Wayne and Lucille Mabbitt; and her brother, Danny.
She is survived by her sister, Sherry (David) Riddle; her children, the 4 T's, Tammy (Bruce) Hughes, Tina Thurman Alexander Johnson, Terry Thurman, and Trevor (Leslie) Thurman; her grandchildren, Tiffiny, Brock, Tyler, Jaycee, Kaeson, and Kyler.
A Celebration of Life and visitation with the family will be at 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 13, 2017, in the New Life Nazarene Church fellowship hall, 3615 Raible Ave., Anderson, Indiana.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your favorite charity or to funeral home for family expenses.
Services have been entrusted to the Loose Funeral Homes & Crematory, 200 W. 53rd St., Anderson, IN 46013.
