Longtime Naples resident Thelma Hodges still celebrates life at age 94.
The co-founder of Naples-based Hodges Funeral Home with her late husband, Earl, in 1962 will be on hand this month to celebrate the launch of Hodges’ latest business venture, Hodges Life Celebration Center in Bonita Springs.
“She’s an absolute doll — very, very generous and sweet. I’m hoping we can extend that legacy they created into the Bonita Springs market area,” said Naples resident Michelle Matuszak, a licensed funeral director who is the location manager of the new venue.
Thelma Hodges will cut the ribbon and join a Champagne toast at 3:15 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19, to christen the new Hodges Life Celebration Center during an indoor-outdoor grand opening party planned from 2 to 4 p.m. that day at the new venue at 26051 S. Tamiami Trail.
