Obituary

Margaret C. Thompson, a homemaker and longtime resident of Des Moines, died in Hospice at Wesley Acres on Saturday, January 9. She was 99 years of age last October.

A Memorial Service will be held 11:00 a.m., Saturday, June 12, 2010 at Westover Funeral Home, 6337 Hickman Road, Des Moines, followed by burial at the Des Moines Masonic Cemetery.

Born Margaret James in Springville, she married in 1931 and lived in various Iowa communities until moving to Des Moines in 1947. With her late husband, James A. (Tommy), they raised two children. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and Daughters of the Nile, and held various positions in the organizations. She was also a member and regularly attended services at Westminster Presbyterian Church. An alumni of Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA, she continued her association with former classmates throughout her active lifetime. During retirement years, she spent winters in Mesa, AZ, where she indulged herself in senior golf and other activities associated with a retirement community. Many lasting friendships were developed during this time, and she regularly corresponded with these individuals until recent years. In the summer of 2001, she chose to continue her independence by making Wesley Acres Retirement Community her permanent home. There she enjoyed the many activities available, including cards and Bingo.

She is survived by a son, James R. and wife, Sharon of Buffalo, NY, five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Her daughter, Nancy Ogren of Des Moines, preceded her in death in 2004.

Memorial contributions may be made to Wesley Acres Hospice.
