Mrs. Thompson served faithfully for thirty-five years as a pastor's wife in the Church of the Nazarene, working full-time in the early years to make Rev. Thompson's ministry possible. She was known to reach out to the forgotten, express love to all ages, and was sensitive to the needs of the elderly. In the last few years she showed concern for, and interest in, those living in her senior apartment complex. Her family will always treasure the fact that she loved each of them unconditionally and prayed for them.
