“Thelma Cannon was a wonderfully sweet and loving Jonestown resident, who took great care of her children and was kind to all other children. She managed to raise her son Henry so that he had a pleasant day-to-day life, and she worked hard to provide him with the care he needed. She was a treasure for all of us in the community. ” - Laura Johnston Kohl
