Obituary of Thelma Ann Brummage McGinnis

Thelma Ann Brummage McGinnis, 80 of Morgantown went home to her Lord & Savior on Thursday, May 28, 2020 after a battle with cancer. Thelma was the foster daughter of the late Sophie West and raised in a good Christian home. She was a home-maker and held several retail jobs, a nanny for Pediatrician Dr. Luna Iskander, cared for her grandchildren and other children in her home. She was a full-time care giver for her husband Larry. She was a member at Living by Faith Church for decades and served as a volunteer for VBS under Rev David Tomer. After his retirement she joined Cornerstone Ministries pastored by her son Greg McGinnis. She was proud of her family and blessed to have 2 sons serving the Lord in their Ministries, Pastor David McGinnis of Heartland Worship Center Church of God in Topeka, KS. She loved to shop, travel, watch the birds, see her flowers bloom each year and most of all family dinners at her home. She was a great Mother and always looked out for her family. She instilled the word of God and great values in her children and grandchildren from a young age. She would take anything in and give it a home. She always said "If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all." She was loved by all, we know heaven will be a much better place. She will be deeply missed, her memory will forever live on.
