Gifts & Memorial Donations

Betty E. Thompson passed away on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 following a brief period of declining health. Betty grew up in Kansas City and was the only child of the late Rolla and Ida Williams. She became a long-time resident of Roswell, NM over 40 years ago.

Betty was a “professional homemaker” – taking care of everything for everybody! She was an amazing Mom and loving supportive wife to her late husband (of 70 years!!), Larry Thompson. She was active in the Christian Women’s Club in Roswell for many years & valued the wonderful friendships she made there. She loved to cook & craft & sew & travel (especially to unite with family). Her kind and nurturing spirit will be forever remembered.

Her two children, Sheila Grapes and Mark W. Thompson; four grandchildren, Jared Thompson, Jordan Thompson, Connor Thompson, and Brittany Badeau; and one great-grandson, Dominic James, survive her.

The family will have a private gathering only.

    When I first moved to Roswell, NM from CA I didn't know anyone and as a new mother with a husband starting a new business I could have been very lonely. However, I decided to get involved with Christian Women's Club, and that is where I met the beautiful inside and out Betty Thompson. Betty, was one of the most gracious, kindest, and encouraging woman I had ever met. We became instant friends. Heaven is indeed richer with her presence! May the Lord comfort each family member during this time.
