Mrs. Sam Thompson Dies at Morrison
Mrs. Sam Thompson died at her home in Morrison, Sunday morning at 5:30, after a brief illness of pneumonia. A severe cold was contracted ten days ago, and which developed into pneumonia.
Mrs. Thompson, whose maiden name was Agnes Campbell, was born in Londonderry, Ireland, on January 12, 1880. She was united in marriage to Sam Thompson at Moville, Ireland, and soon after embarked for the United States. After their arrival in March 1905, they made their home in and around Reinbeck, with the exception of a brief residence in the western part of the state. In the spring of 1940 they purchased a home in Morrison, and moved from Reinbeck.
Mrs. Thompson was one of a family of seven brothers and one sister. Her entire family, including the parents, have preceded her in death. She is survived only by her husband.
At the time of her death, Mrs. Thompson was a member of the Congregational church at Reinbeck. While in Ireland both Mr. and Mrs. Thompson were members of the Episcopal church. While of rather a retiring nature, Mrs. Thompson was noted for doing the little things in life for others, that make life worth living. She was not a person to make any great display of any such deeds of kindness. These little things, with her love for flowers, will be cherished with her memory.
Funeral services were conducted at the French funeral home in Reinbeck on Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 18, at 2:30, by the Rev. Norman Frerking, pastor of the Morrison Presbyterian church. Mrs. George Morrill and Mrs. Clyde Hartley, accompanied by Mrs. Friend Miller at the piano, rendered two beautiful and familiar hymns. The casket bearers were Harold, Friend and Robert Miller, of Morrison, Charles Shearn and John and Herman Strobehn of Reinbeck. The flowers were in charge of Mrs. Albert Goble and Mrs. Gleo Mooty. Interment was made in the Washington township cemetery, just south of Morrison.
