Thelma Edna (Crum) Trent

February 9, 1925 ~ April 29, 2020 (age 95)


Thelma Edna Crum Trent, age 95, of West First Street, Morehead, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, at the Life Care Center of Morehead.


Born February 9, 1925, in Rowan County, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Rosie Dehart Crum.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Eva Trent; an adopted son, Sidney Cox; one sister; Jewell Conn; and four brothers, Vencil, Willie, Oscar, and Holly Crum.


Thelma is survived by her loving husband of 79 years, Wales Scotland Trent, whom she married March 3, 1941; two sons, Ted and Sharon Trent of Clearfield and Gary and Sally Trent of Morehead; six grandchildren, Kevin (Brandie) Trent, Tyler Trent, Jim Tom Trent, Mike (April) Trent, Joy (Pope) Cudd and Kelly (Jesse) McHugh; five great grandchildren, Zoe, Braeden, Gabe and Garrison Trent and Jaxon Cudd; and long-time loyal and compassionate caregivers, Madge Plank and Susette Snipes. 


Thelma was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who cherished her family.  Known as a caring person, her influence extended beyond the family circle.  Countless lives were influenced through her work as a cook at Daniel Boone Convalescent Center and Rowan County Senior High School.  She was a meticulous person who perfected everyday tasks as a homemaker, caring for her own children and their children, as well as eagerly giving a helping hand to other relatives, neighbors and friends.  Often those children, now adults, told Thelma the positive changes she had made in their lives.  Thelma and Wales thoroughly enjoyed having all the family and friends in their home, sharing good food and recalling the history of family and the region.  She and Wales were gospel singers and proudly traveled with others to spread the word of God in song.  A longtime member of the Church of God, her Christian walk on a daily basis and the importance of family will forever be a shining example and a treasured memory for family and dear friends.  She will be lovingly remembered. 


Due to the COVID-19 regulations set forth by the Governor, a private service for immediate family will be held Saturday, May 2, 2020, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals with Pastor Gary Madden officiating.  Entombment will be in Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens Mausoleum. 


In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Hope Pregnancy Center or a charity of one’s choice.


Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals, 400 Fraley Drive, Morehead, KY 40351 is caring for arrangements.
