Obituary for Charlene Anna-Pearl Thompson
Charlene Anna-Pearl Thompson, 81, of Caldwell, Ohio, passed away Monday, March 20, 2017, at The Morrison Hospice House in Zanesville, Ohio. She was born June 16, 1935, in Dudley, daughter of the late Raymond and Cora Lori Lorey. Charlene attended school in Dudley. She married Floyd Thompson on December 21, 1953, and she was a loving wife, mother, and homemaker. Charlene provided unconditional, unwavering love and support to her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She had a love of gardening and flowers, especially purple African Violets and pink roses. She was a tremendous baker of cinnamon rolls, breads, raspberry and butterscotch pies, and cookies. As with everything she did for her family, everything she baked and every flower she grew was a labor of love. Charlene will always be remembered for her generosity, warm smile, and kind, loving spirit.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, her brothers, John (Lorita), Clarence (Marie), twin brother Charles, sister Lucille (Davey) Jones, and brother-in-law Everett Hesson.
She will be deeply missed by her children, Barbara Jean (Rick) DeVolld of Ecuador, Debra (Thomas) Smith of Texas, Mary (Raymond) Rex of Caldwell, Robert (Marcia) Thompson of Sherrodsville, Tom (Denise) Thompson of West Lafayette, and Stephen (Lisa) Thompson of Florida; 22 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; brothers, Howard (Darlene) Lorey of Caldwell and Richard (Barbara) Lorey of North Carolina; sister, Dorothy Hesson of Elba; and sister-in-law, Gladys Lorey of Canton.
