She was born and raised in Essignton, Pa. She was a caring and loving wife of 51 years and was also a very devoted mother and grandmother. She spoke often about her faith and taught her children and grandchildren good morals and to always trust in God to pull them through hard times. She loved being outdoors, whether it was fishing or admiring the leaves in the fall. She will be extremely missed by her loved ones, because she was the heart that held her family together and through her memory, the heart will continue to beat.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents; parents, Joseph and Margaret Mary Jarek; and her neice, Kelly Jarek Ellixson.
She was survived by her loving husband, Elbert Leon Thompson Sr.; children, Billy (Kathy) Morris, Joseph (Marcy) Morris, Elbert Leon Thompson Jr., Christine (Jimmy) Collins, Robert (Becky) Thompson and Margie (Joe) Pierce; brother, Walter (Pauline) Jarek; grandchildren, Matt Morris, Leslie (Chris) Prescott, Jason (Misty) Morris, Justin Morris, Casey Honeycutt, Josh Thompson, Travis Thompson, Ashley (Drew) Wisdom, Amanda (fiance Colt Courington) Pierce, Michael Pierce; nieces, Anna (Joe) Zajac, Jennifer (Scott) Chestnut; nephews, Jason Jarek, Jeremy Jarek and Paul Jarek; and host of great nieces and nephews and family friends.
