Thelma F. Blake, 85, of Warren, passed away Monday morning, March 25, 2019, at University Hospital of Cleveland.

She was born February 2, 1934 in Waynesburg, PA, a daughter of Arley and Mabel (Romack) McMasters.

Thelma was a 1952 graduate of Waynesburg High School, and was employed as a massage therapist for Dr. Daniel Reitz in Warren for several years. After retiring she continued providing therapy out of her home for family, friends, and some favorite clients through the years.

She married James A. Blake on March 21, 1953. They shared 31 years of marriage and many happy memories together. He preceded her in death on August 18, 1984.

Thelma was of the Protestant faith and enjoyed tending to her flowers, doing yard work, and supporting her sons sports teams and keeping score for them. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family, whom she dearly loved.

She is survived by three sons; James A. "Allen" Blake, of Warren, Mitchell E. (Julie) Blake, of Lordstown, and Robert E. Blake of Warren. She also leaves behind a brother, David (Lynora) McMasters, of Howland; a sister, Donna Lee Debolt, of Newton Falls; five grandchildren; Eric Blake, Sandra (Fawad) Shaikh, Lisa (Sean) Mark, Heather (Doug) Eisenbraun, and Kyle Blake; and seven great grandchildren; Anabelle, Owen, Camryn, Madison, Jaxon, Emerson, and Zaina.

Besides her husband, Thelma was preceded in death by her parents, a sister, Betty Worthington, a daughter-in-law, Nancy Blake, and a great granddaughter, Ava.

Funeral services will be held 11 AM Saturday, March 30, 2019, at the Carl W. Hall Funeral Home, 533 North Park Ave., Warren, with Pastor James Dittmar officiating.

Friends may call 5 - 7 PM Friday, March 29th, at the funeral home.

Thelma will be laid to rest next to her beloved husband in the Pine Knoll Cemetery, Warren Twp.
