Found her mother Emma Lathrop and her grandparents Harrison Lathrop and Barbara Ballinger and all her aunts and uncles. 

Appears her father was Joseph H Perry son of Richard Thomas Perry and Marion Lavinia Shears.  More on his siblings on census, birth records on family search.

Thelma also married a Laverne Ferneau, son of John Ferneau and Dora Collins.
