It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Irene Thompson. Irene died about 5:00 Thursday morning, January 7 at Riddle Hospital after a brief bout of pneumonia. Irene was a charter member of Marple Christian Church and was active in all aspects of the life of this congregation until health issues in recent years slowed her down. She celebrated her 98th birthday on December 15, 2016.
We will remember Irene as a kind and gracious lady, a founding member of our congregation, and a Christian woman who worked faithfully to improve the lives of others, from her home to the ends of the earth.
Irene is survived by her sons, Fred and Charles, and their wives, Sue and Marge, along with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
A service in loving memory of Irene took place at Marple Christian Church on Saturday, January 16, at 10:00 a.m. All attending the service were invited to visit with the family at a tea following the service.
Thank you for your continuing prayers for all who are mourning Irene's passing.
