Obituary for Rose Marie Thompson

Rose Marie Thompson
Rose Marie Thompson, 83, passed away peacefully surrounded by her children at Massena Memorial Hospital on November 1, 2018. The cause of death was believed to be respiratory failure after a long bout with the flu. Marie (also known by her immediate family and friends as “RB” for Rosy Baby) was born on May 17, 1935 to Ivy May Baker and Albert Edward Roussel in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. She was the eldest of four daughters.
After earning her high school diploma she became a draftsperson for Westinghouse where she met her husband Charles Westwood Thompson. They were married May 20, 1955 and had four children; Charles, Eric, Heather, and Bruce. Marie and Charlie and their two youngest children Heather and Bruce, moved to Madison, Connecticut in 1980.
Marie and Charlie spent some time in Sunapee, New Hampshire and retired to Massena, New York in the summer of 1990. Charlie passed away April 16, 1994.
Marie and Charlie enjoyed the outdoors and spent much of their lives camping, fishing, and hunting. Even after Charlie passed away, Marie continued camping at the annual Thompson Family Reunion. Marie was a gifted artist and enjoyed painting wilderness scenes with paints and pastels. While Marie lead a quiet life at her home in Massena, she was an avid gardener and bowler and enjoyed cooking for her family. Known to her neighbors, close friends, and family as a kind and compassionate spirit “who enjoyed a good smoke”.
Marie is survived by her three sisters, Ivy, Elsie, and Pat, her four children, Charles, Eric, Heather, and Bruce, her grandchildren, Justine, Colleen, Holly, Scott, Austin, David, Mary, Theresa, Carol, and Charles, and her great grandchildren, Emilie, Yvette, and Rory.
In accordance with Marie’s wishes, she was cremated and there will be no funeral services. Marie’s and Charlie’s ashes will be spread on a lake in Ontario where they spent many a time together, and later with their children.
