In 1968, Thurman accepted a ride from another rodeo family, last name Lewis. They were headed her way from a performance in Little Rock, Arkansas, to rodeo slack in Waco, Texas. On October 2, at 1:15 a.m, the Lewis vehicle slammed into an overturned 18-wheeler. The wreck killed Thurman, and some of the Lewis family, along with two barrel racing horses.


In her time, she was one of the top-ranked and fastest barrel racers in the country. She set the fastest time in the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) and held that record for a time. She held barrel racing clinics. She held the position of barrel racing director in the Girl's Rodeo Association (the predecessor to the Women's Professional Rodeo Association). The GRA was founded in 1948. The foundation occurred one year after the first all-girls rodeo, which took place in Amarillo, Texas. She took advantage of her barrel racing experience while she was director to further develop opportunities for all who followed her footsteps.


Thurman first competed in the time when barrel racing was a 1940s-era "paid performance" of "Ranch Girl" event. But as her career evolved, the sport developed into true competition that established itself as a real rodeo event. When she was 34-years-old, Thurman was a nine-time qualifier of the NFR and was ranked second in the World Standings. This was the same year that she was killed in an automobile accident.
