Rita Thompson passed away on March 19, 2019 at 3:15 p.m. She was born February 22, 1939.
She leaves to mourn, her daughters Ann (Kevin), Estelle and son, Calvin. Her husband and two children, Gary and Brenda have preceeded her in death.
Mom loved flowers and people. Her smile could light up a room and made others around her smile.
She worked for Robert Young for years and helped raise three of the children: Susan, Marybee and Kathy. She loved them and they loved her too.
Rita was a good mother. She attended the meetings at the Kingdom Hall after becoming one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. When she could not attend her meetings, her daughter, Ann recorded them for her and she enjoyed listening to them.
After her husband’s death, she continued to care for her children: Ann, Calvin and Estelle.
She lovingly helped her daughter Estelle with her illness and she did what she could. Ann took care of the family and Kevin (Ann’s husband) and Estelle took care Rita during her illness. Rita helped them when they were ill and they were there to help her.
Rita is in Jehovah’s memory and we are all awaiting the day to see her back again in the resurrection which Jehovah promised in Paradise.
She will be missed. Now she is resting and at peace, no more suffering.
Family will receive friends on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 6346 Airlie Road Warrenton, VA 20187,
from 12:00PM to 1:00PM with a funeral service beginning at 1:00PM. Burial will take place at a later date.
