Thelma J. Street Dye
(01 Dec 1926 - 23 Apr 2018)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   There is still more sad news this Thursday.  Thelma Street Dye, mother of Barbara Dye Hensley ('69) of VA and Cleve Dye, and of the late Sandra Dye Creasman ('68), passed away at her home in Newport News on Wednesday, April 23, 2018 at the age of 91. 


From the Daily Press - 04/26/18:

      NEWPORT NEWS - Thelma J. Dye, 91, passed away at her home, April 23, 2018, after a second courageous battle with cancer.

She leaves behind many loving family members and friends who are saddened by her passing, but who rejoice that her pain and suffering are no more.

Thelma was born in the small coal mining town of Stonega, Va., December 1926. She was the youngest of 11 children born to Elbert T. and Sarah Street (Blankenship).

She grew up in southwest Virginia where she met the man she would marry, Cleve Dye Jr. They eventually settled in Newport News, Va., where they raised three children, and celebrated 50 years of marriage until Cleve's passing in 1999.

 
 
 
 

 

 

Many people remember Thelma for her time spent (25 years) assisting her husband managing Denbigh Mobile Home Park in Newport News. She always took the time to know the tenants and to offer them assistance when needed any way she could. Some will remember the pride she took in her yard, brought to life by the many flowers and plants she meticulously cared for. And all remember her big heart and giving nature to insure no family member, loved one or friend was ever in need of anything.

Thelma was predeceased by her parents and siblings, her husband Cleve, and daughter Sandra.

She is survived by a daughter, Barbara Hensley (Donald) of Gloucester; son, Cleve Dye III (Kelly) of Newport News; grandchildren, Amy Brown (John) of Moyock, NC, Jim Kiser (Teresa) of Houston, Tx., Megan Richardson (Eric) of Newport News, Va., and Barbara Galley of Sanger, Ca.; 9 great-grandchildren; and two great-great grandchildren (with a third on the way).

The family would like to offer our heartfelt gratitude to Riverside Hospice Services for their assistance during this time. Specific thanks go out to Stephanie, Melissa and Sabrina for their love and caring they showed Thelma during each visit. You never failed to lift her spirits whenever she saw you and the caring she had for others extended to each of you.

There will be a graveside service for Thelma on Saturday, April 28, 11 a.m., at Peninsula Memorial Park in the Garden of Wisdom. Arrangements are being handled by Altmeyer Funeral Home in Newport News.

In lieu of flowers, per Thelma's request, please consider a donation in her name to the National Cancer Institute.

Online condolences may be shared with the family at www.altmeyerfuneralandcremation.com. View and post condolences on our online guestbook at dailypress.com/guestbooks.

Lead, Kindly Light

Lyrics by John Henry Newman, 1833
Music by John B. Dykes, 1865


Lead, kindly Light, amid th’encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home;
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou
Shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose and see my path; but now
Lead Thou me on!
I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will. Remember not past years!

So long Thy power hath blessed me, sure it will,
Will lead me on.
O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till
The night is gone,
And with the morn those angel faces smile,
Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile!

Meantime, along the narrow rugged path,
Thyself hast trod,
Lead, Savior, lead me home in childlike faith,
Home to my God.
To rest forever after earthly strife
In the calm light of everlasting life.
