Thelma Joan Vaughan aged 62, was reported missing February 7, 2018. Her body was later recovered in the South Thompson River in Kamloops, British Columbia. Thelma was an outdoor winter sports enthusiast, and her death was believed to be accidental.

Thelma was born in Sarnia, Ontario. She lived in Clearwater, BC, for about 40 years and was recently living in Kamloops, BC.

Thelma is survived by her daughter Natasha (Frank) Linteris and grandson Alex Linteris, son in law Dave Garcia and grandson Maddax Garcia.

Thelma worked for the CN Railway for 23.5 years performing track maintenance.

She had many hobbies such as cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, mountain biking and kayaking.

Thelma was the most amazing grandma. She often visited her grandsons travelling from Vancouver, BC, to High Prairie, Alberta. She took them to the waterslide, go carts, white water rafting and rock climbing. These trips are not your typical outings for a grandma. She was adventurous and fun! A woman full of life!
