Nancy Walden Day Thompson, the cherished wife of the late George Irwin Thompson, leaves behind legacy rich in love and service. Married since 1954 after dating through high school, their union spanned an incredible 60 years, and now they are reunited. As the devoted mother of Bob, Peter, Larry, Ken, and Sue, her love was the epitome of limitless energy and unconditional love. In her lifetime, Nancy made an indelible mark as a caregiver. Professionally, she was a nurse, delivering hundreds of babies, all while nurturing her own family. Her dedication wasn't just to her immediate family but extended to her church and community. She and George, friends, and family were avid campers and Trekked around the country. White Lake State Park in Tamworth NH was a cherished vacation for all of us.
Known for her silent wisdom, she was a woman of few words but communicated volumes through her eyes. A single glance could say more than a thousand words ever could. She was the matriarchal anchor in her large, loving family. As the eldest of three siblings, she never lost her sense of humor or her penchant for pranks.
She passed away peacefully, holding a teddy bear gifted by her children and clutching a Bible in her right hand, its pages open to the Psalms. Though she may have departed, her radiant love continues to shine down on us all.
