Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Reflections of Emma’s Life…
Emma Mae McDonald – Thomas was born on May 16, 1922 in Muskogee, Oklahoma to Valdora McDonald. She was a student of Muskogee Public Schools. She was a former employee at the Muskogee General Hospital, Muskogee, OK.
She moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1977. Emma inspired, taught, guided us, handed down all her family stories, knowledge, and memories. Emma was a loving caring and incredible woman. She made a difference in the lives of the people she touched.
Emma loved reading the bible and singing Gospel music. She was a member of the Covenant Family Church until her illness, she also worked in the church nursery.
Emma will be reunited in heaven with her mother, Valdora McDonald, step-father William McDonald, son David Allen Thomas and three grandchildren.
On, October 2, 2016 the Lord summoned Emma Mae Thomas unto her heavenly home. God saw her getting tired and cure was not to be. He wrapped her in His loving arms and whispered “Come with me”. She suffered such in silence, her spirit did not bend. She faced her pain with courage until the very end. She tried so hard to stay with us but her fight was not in vain. God took her to his loving home and freed her from pain.
Those left to cherish her beautiful memories are her five children, Gloria Ashley (Louie) of Tulsa, OK, Sylvester Thomas (Debbie) of Tulsa, OK., James Thomas of Oklahoma City, OK., Linda Perry of Tulsa, OK and Nadine Martin of Tulsa, OK. Emma will also be missed by 18 loving grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren, one great-great grandchild along with extended family and friends.
