Thayle Richards

UNION, Ky. — Thayle Richards passed away gently Friday, Sept. 21, 2012, in Union, Ky., while with her two daughters Lisa Richards, of Columbus, Ohio, and Dana Richards Skulan, of Union, Ky. 

She was married to Joseph H. Richards for 52 years and was widowed in November 2007. 

She is survived by her two daughters; son-in-law, Dan Skulan; granddaughters, Lena and Laura Mei Skulan; stepson, Douglas and his wife, Leigh Richards; and grandchildren, AJ and Amy Richards.

Laura Thayle Wallace Richards was born in Bryan, Texas, but later graduated from Paducah High School in Kentucky and attended several reunions in Paducah over the years including the 55 year reunion held in 2009. She had a lifelong love of nature as reflected in her many donations to environmental  preservation causes as well as making nature the subject of much of her art work. She was a talented painter, seamstress, crafter and appreciator of all arts and spent several years as a docent for the Columbus (Ohio) Art Gallery.

She will be most remembered for finding the humor in every situation and for the courageous spirit she maintained throughout her life. She is much loved by her family and friends and will be dearly missed.

Memorial services will be at 4 p.m. Oct. 6 at Union Presbyterian Church, 10259 U.S. Rt. 42, Union, Ky. Visitation is from 2 to 4 p.m. with services and reception following.

An additional service will be at 12:30 p.m. Oct. 14 in Indiana at the Grass Creek Methodist Church, 7219 Ind. 17, Grass Creek, with a burial ceremony immediately following at the Kewanna IOOF Cemetery. A reception will follow at the Grass Creek Firehouse.

Memorials can be made to Union Presbyterian Church or Grass Creek Methodist respectively — in lieu of flowers if preferred. Stith Funeral Homes, Florence, Ky., is in charge of arrangements.
