Obituary for Thelma C. (Rollet) Alves

Thelma C. (Rollet) Alves, 90, passed away at home surrounded by her loving children on November 26, 2020. Born, raised and educated in Three Rivers, MA, Thelma was the daughter of the late Louis and Evelyn (Monat) Rollet. She married Joseph Alves in 1949 and moved to Ludlow where she was a faithful communicant of Our Lady of Fatima Church.
Thelma worked for many years at East Street Elementary School, the Ludlow Highway Department and the Ludlow Veterans Services from which she retired in 1998. She was also an Avon representative for over 45 years.
A dedicated wife and mom who always took loving care of her children. Thelma demonstrated strength and courage to her children and those who knew her. She fiercely battled pancreatic cancer over the last year and was determined to never give up that fight. She loved life and her only concerns were for the health and happiness of others.
Thelma loved to read, work in her garden, craft, knit, sew and crochet. She freely shared her talents with many throughout her life. She loved the holidays and any occasion to be with family and friends. She adored children and always wanted them to feel safe and warm. Every year she would knit hats, blankets and scarves to donate anonymously to various charitable organizations. Thelma was genuinely kind and loving. Those who met her quickly felt her love and many became life long friends.
Thelma was the beloved wife of the late Joseph Alves, who predeceased her in 1998; a loving and devoted mother to John, Donald, Debra, James, Lisa, and spouses Lorraine, Betty, Arnold Block, Linda and Jeff Corbin. Cherished Mémé to grandchildren DJ, Steve, Katie, Jake, Kristina and Alicia and great grandchildren Nicole and PJ. A dear sister to Richard and predeceased by brothers Francis and Donald and sister Marie. She also leaves many cousins, nieces, nephews, neighbors, loving extended family members and dear friends who cherish her memory.

Family and friends are then asked to gather on Thursday, December 3, 2020 at Our Lady of Fatima Church at 11:00am for a Liturgy of Christian Burial. Burial will be held privately by the family.
