April 8, 1941 - March 18, 2022
Mary Katherine Thompson was born in Fisher, Arkansas, on April 8, 1941, and she left this life on March 18, 2022, at the age of 80. Katherine was a long-time member of the Buckingham Road Church of Christ and she is now in Heaven, having finished her race and gained her reward. Katherine graduated from Newport High School in 1959 and married that same year. She had daughter Katina in 1965 in Little Rock, AR, and then the family moved to Garland, TX, in 1971. Katherine began her career at Garland ISD as a PE aide in 1986 and retired from GISD in 2003, as the manager of the computer lab at Abbett Elementary School. In 1980, Katherine married Bob Thompson and gained three new daughters. In addition to her relationship with God, Katherine’s relationships with her sisters, her daughters, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and her nieces and nephews were always Katherine’s priority. One of Katherine’s gifts was making people feel special. She had many lifelong friends coming from work, church, and community. Her unselfish, generous spirit made her a loyal and loving friend to many. Katherine opened her home to host many groups throughout the years. She enjoyed cooking and entertaining, and she was excellent at both. People always left her home feeling loved and cared for. Katherine leaves behind four daughters, Katina Jones of Garland, TX, Kay Lewis of Denver, CO, Lea Watkins of Abilene, TX, and Sallie Anderson of Hewitt, TX, 8 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. Katherine has 2 living sisters, Betty Williams of Camden, AR, and Carolyn Kelley of Shawnee, KS and 5 nieces and 1 nephew. Her greatest desire was that her entire family be with her in Heaven. Katherine was preceded in death by her parents, Herbert and Blanche Brownfiel, her oldest sister, Peggy Bokony, her nephew, Buddy Bokony, and her loving husband of 15 years, Bob Thompson. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Buckingham Road Church of Christ Food Pantry, where Katherine served tirelessly for many years.
