Rio Ran­cho,

New Mex­ico PA­TRI­CIA CHAR­LENE THOMP­SON, born in Ste­wartville, MN., June 21, 1941, passed away peace­fully Novem­ber 27,2018, af­ter a long battle with di­a­betes.

At a young age, she left Rich­land, WA, bound to Seat­tle, WA, worked a few years, be­fore mov­ing to San Fran­cisco. San Fran­cisco was her home for over 50 years. Patsy worked as a le­gal sec­re­tary and was very ac­tive in the Arts that SF is known for. She at­tended ev­ery play she could by vol­un­teer­ing as an usher. Her tal­ents were many, but her pas­sion was read­ing. She col­lected books, us­ing some as a cof­fee ta­ble, as she never wanted to let them go. She re­lo­cated to Dal­las, TX, to be near her son and daugh­terin-law, Rob & El­iz­a­beth De­G­root, and 3 grand­chil­dren, 1 great grand­son, and re­cently to Rio Ran­cho, NM, to an as­sisted liv­ing fa­cil­ity, which also took her closer to her sis­ter Sally and her fam­ily.

She was pre­ceded in death by her sis­ter’s Lois Ne­ble, Donna Jack­son, Geral­dine Par­sons, and her par­ents Otis and Vi­o­let Thomp­son. She leaves numer­ous nieces and neph­ews, whom she loved dearly, and many spe­cial friends. Her fierce love, of fam­ily will be re­mem­bered by all.

Sur­vivors in­clude her twin brother, Patrick Charles, and his wife, Mar­cia (Bird) of Scottsdale, AZ, and sis­ter, Sally Hous­ley, of Rio Ran­cho, NM.

The fam­ily will con­form to her wishes of no fu­neral, but per­haps a me­mo­rial gath­er­ing in 2019.

Her fi­nal rest­ing place will be with fam­ily at Ei­nan’s, Sun­set Me­mo­rial Gar­dens, Rich­land, WA.
