Thelma is the middle child and only daughter of Florida and James Evans Sr. She grew up on the Southwest-side of Chicago in a housing hi-rise project building with her parents and brothers, J.J. and Michael.
Thelma met, courted, then married former standout collegiate football star Keith Anderson in 1978 at the beginning of Season 5, a college athlete who had a bright future, in being the top draft choice of the NFL's Chicago Bears.
