Obituary of Mary Louise Thompson

Highgate Springs,

Mary Louise Thompson died peacefully at the Northwest Medical Center in Saint Albans, Vermont on April 10, 2018 after a long decline. She was 68.

Mary was born in Portland, Maine March 30, 1950 to George Robert Thompson and Ruth Blake Thompson. At an early age she moved with her family to Montpelier, Vermont, and graduated from Montpelier High School in 1968. She went on to graduate from Middlebury College with a BA degree and from Penn State with a MBA. She was a prolific artist specializing in printmaking, studying under Middlebury artist David Bumbeck. One of her prints was selected for display in U.S. Embassies worldwide. Following her MBA she moved to Pittsburgh where she worked for Jones & Laughlin Steel, rising to the title of acting director of marketing. She then returned to Montpelier where she worked for National Life Insurance, then to Middlebury and Breadloaf Construction Company, and then to Swanton where she worked for a customs broker at the U.S. - Canada border. She moved to her final home in Highgate Springs and continued her work until failing health forced her to early retirement.

Although she had many friends, Mary was a very private person and valued her solitude. She was predeceased by her parents and her brother Robert. She is survived by her brothers William and his wife Francoise and James and his wife Sandra, as well as several cousins, nephews and nieces and her beloved dog Zena.

We are grateful for the wonderful care she received, especially from Diane Kenyon, Betty Lewis and Lynn Dodd of Franklin County Home Health and Hospice, and the Northwest Medical Center.

There will be no visiting hours. Arrangements for a memorial will be at a later time at the discretion of the family. Contributions in Mary's name may be made to the NMC Fund of the Northwest Medical Center, Franklin County Animal Rescue or a charity of your choice.
