Dorothy Marie Thompson, 94, of Frederick, Maryland, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 20, 2020, at Homewood at Crumland Farms. She was the beloved and devoted wife of the late LeRoy (Bud) Thompson, whom she married on November 7, 1942.

She was born August 6, 1925, in Derwood, Montgomery County, Maryland, and was the daughter of the late George C. and Ethel M. Walter.

Dorothy and Bud owned and operated a dairy farm in Dickerson, Maryland. They were both extremely passionate about farming and caring for animals. Dorothy was a devout Catholic and was actively involved with St. Mary’s in Barnesville and St. Joseph’s in Buckeystown.

Dorothy passed her time crocheting. She made baby blankets for little ones and lap blankets for older ones. She especially enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She could always be counted on to attend family reunions and church events. People were always welcomed into her home...and were well fed.

Dorothy was preceded in death by brothers, Norman, George, and Franklin; and sisters, Harriet Lifka, Charlotte Childs, Ethelene Ayton, Helen Offutt, Lorraine Sadtler, Catherine Dorsey and Jeannette Watkins.

She is survived by hundreds of well-loved nieces, nephews, greats and great-greats. As well as many loved and devoted friends.
