She married her high school sweetheart Walter Dale Wogan in 1954. Thelma attended and graduated from the Trumbull Memorial Hospital School of Nursing and worked at Trumbull Memorial Hospital as a laboratory technologist in charge of the Histology Department until 1967 at which time she decided to stay at home to raise her children full time. The couple celebrated the birth of Sandra in 1963 and Thomas in 1967. Her children remember her as a loving mother who always supported and encouraged them in every way to pursue their dreams.
