Mary Thompson, 90, of Chattaroy, passed away on Saturday, July 27, 2013, at Williamson Memorial Hospital in Williamson, WV.

In addition to her parents she is preceded in death by her husband, Roby Thompson and a beloved granddaughter, Kara Thompson Vance; five brothers, Curtis, Carlos, Alex, Billy Jack and Jimmy Ray Moore.
While Mary possessed a gentle spirit she was a woman of great inner strength. She played a vital role in looking after six brothers following the death of their mother, Exer. She was especially important in the life of her brother, J. R., as she cared for him and saw him through the remainder of his school years.
Mary later married her beloved Roby Thompson. She was well prepared for her role as a wife and mother. Mary enjoyed caring for her home and her children so much so that it would be her life’s work. She was a wonderful cook whose specialty was biscuits and gravy. Her love of family extended to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren as they came into her life one by one.
Mary remained actively engaged in life long after her children were grown and on their own. She enjoyed traveling to Las Vegas and New York and other points of interest. She was enjoyed reading very much.
Mary’s life was rich and full, having been filled with the love of family and good friends. She will be sorely missed yet lovingly remembered always.
