Carol Lynn Thompson
July 17, 1966 – June 8, 2019
Carol Lynn Thompson was born July 17, 1966, in Rockville Centre, New York, to parents Homer and Sharon Thompson. She passed away June 8, 2019, in Oklahoma City.
From an early age, Carol was fascinated with cars, trucks, and all things construction. No dolls for her. She worked in the parts department at an auto dealership and various construction companies, most recently CMS Willowbrook.
Those who knew Carol found her to be conscientious, caring, and witty. They could always count on her for a good laugh.
The loves of her life were her many dogs. Her devotion to them was over-the-top.
Carol was preceded in death by her father Homer, grandparents, and sister Debby Broomfield. She is survived by her mother Sharon, aunt Vicki Munoz, brother-in-law Mike Broomfield and his family, as well as many other family members.

She started as a client at our veterinary clinic. In the end, she was a dear friend. She loved to talk with me about her dogs' antics. I would in turn tell her that latest adventures in my family. She would ask for stories about our daughters and felt that our youngest might have been her clone. To say that she was dedicated to her pets was an understatement. She gave them all she had and when they were struggling with their health, she did whatever it took to care for them. I know at times, Carol went without in order to provide for her best friends. When she would visit our clinic, she would go out of her way to approach other clients and ask about their pets. She seemed to revel in meeting new "furry people", always ending the new encounter with a compliment noting something special about her new friend. When our staff discovered that she had passed, tears were shed. We will all miss her and feel so fortunate to have known such an amazing woman. She was a true human. Her family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers.

I can still see our girls at that one Mother’s Day dinner the church put on for us and how Carol & Donna hit it off and then they were in such agreement about their food and how they liked it fixed and what they liked on it. We really had a great time with our girls that day. My heart is broken for you Sharon, your Carol was a special person.

My relationship with Carol was over the phone - I work in the office of one of the subcontractors for CMS Willowbrook - but whenever I knew that she was on a project we would be working, I was delighted because she was a wonderful person! She was knowledgeable, efficient, and so very sweet and funny. We always found an extra minute to talk about her dogs and my grandkids, and I was always amazed that she remembered little details from our previous conversations. I will miss the confidence that came from knowing that she was on the job and had everything under control, but mostly I will miss the way she made the rest of us feel - me and all the guys that work on site. She was a special lady. Love and prayers to her family and friends and coworkers. Heaven will be a brighter place with her there!

Carol and I worked together at Midwestern Equipment company.
She worked in the parts department and I thought so highly of her; she had great work ethic and I always enjoyed her company. She had a can do attitude!
Anytime anybody mentioned Carol I had nothing but great things to say about her.
God Bless you Carol

Carol & I started working at CMSWillowbrook the same week. She went to the job site and I stayed in the office. Carol was a hard worker and was very passionate about what she did. Over the years our friendship grew closer. Carol amazed me with her ability to talk to everyone like she had known them for years - she didn't know a stranger. And she cared deeply for everyone. But she loved her dogs, they were her kids. And her quick wit made me laugh every time. She would often tease me about how I would say certain words; for example, we were talking about using the tool, a 'wrench', and she said "Mary - Did you just say a 'ranch'? That's because your from podunk Tuttle."
She could definitely make me laugh!
I will cherish the wonderful memories I've had with this girl. She was a super lady and I miss her dearly.

We’ll miss you Carol. You were always such a responsible, no-nonsense gal. No matter what our predicament, we could always ask you and count on you to give us a well-thought-out piece of advice, full of wisdom. You were such a hard worker who was the best pet mommy ever. It brings me joy to know where you are, and that we’ll all be together before too long. I love you and miss you.
