Marie A. Thompson, age 79, passed away December 23, 2020. Born January 2, 1941 to Rocco and Marie Giordano in Staten Island, New York. Marie was devoted to her church and spent many Tuesday’s at Adoration praying for her family and friends. She volunteered at The Lords Diner for many years helping to feed the homeless. She never knew a stranger. Marie and her sister, Tina, were very close and talked on the phone every day. They shared every moment of their lives, the good times and their sorrows. Marie never missed a birthday or anniversary and made sure to remind us to send a card, just in case we forgot. She loved New York and always talked about how she rode the ferry from Staten Island to Manhattan for work. Marie loved to travel and especially enjoyed her trip to Italy with her husband. She loved to cook and was especially known for her eggplant parmigiana and spaghetti sauce, or “gravy” as the Italians call it. Marie was truly devoted to her family. She will be greatly missed. Marie was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her loving husband of 58 years, Jerry Thompson - she was the love of his life and best friend; sister, Tina (John) Zabinski; daughter, Kelly (Tom) Ziegler; son, Chris (Selena) Thompson; daughter, Kari (Ted) Vogan; grandchildren, Nick (Kaitlin) Metcalfe, Hannah Metcalfe, Erin Thompson, Taylor (Zac) Duncan, Lauryn (Jacob) Hartmann and Austin Vogan; great-grandchildren, Jerry Raphael Armendariz, Kellan Hartmann and Grayson Metcalfe; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

I loved seeing Marie at adoration...she had the hour right after me. She’d come a few minutes early so we could catch up on praying for each other. What a beautiful soul!

I shared many times with Marie at the YMCA and our luncheons with the Y girls.

Marie and I also had the same birthday.

I never saw Marie without a smile.

I have known Marie for almost 60 years having met at our first job out of high school. With our husbands we spent good times together. Even though she traveled so much while Jerry was in the service we always stayed in touch. She was always a fine lady and a wonderful friend. I will miss her terribly. Rest In Peace my dear friend. I love you.

To the family of Marie, my heart is with you in your time of loss of such a wonderful and kind woman.

She was always so welcoming of me when I came to Wichita to visit my parents.

I hope the memories of Marie and love of your family surround you and give you strength in the days ahead.

I will miss my dear friend so much. She was the best Sister in Christ you could ever have. I will carry such good memories we made together.
Marie loved her friends but most of all she let you know how much she loved her family.
Rest my dear friend. I love you.

I have known Marie for 15 years having met her at the Y. We enjoyed many times with the Y girls having lunches and outings around about the town. She was the sweetest, most giving person. Always was there if you need a shoulder to cry on or just to share a good laugh. I shall miss her terribly.
