Marilyn Jo Thompson(1938 - 2018)

Ms. Marilyn Jo Thompson (Kibler)
died peacefully in Littleton, Colorado
on April 6, 2018, at the age of 80 after a
long illness.
Ms. Thompson is survived by her children:
Martha Turner (Allan) of Aurora,
Colorado, Michael Thompson (Diana)
of Denver, Colorado and Scott Thompson
(Karen Voss) of Lakewood, Colorado,
her sister Victoria Pearson of St.
Augustine, Florida, her close friend Mr.
Ken Demary of Englewood, Colorado
as well as five grandchildren and two
great-grandchildren.
Ms. Thompson was born February
13, 1938, in Parkersburg, WV to Jackson
and Mary Kibler. She graduated from
Parkersburg High School in 1956 and
Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri
in 1958 with an Associate in Arts
degree. She married Loren Thompson
in 1959. She was a loving mother to their
three children and pursued her passion
for art mostly through oil painting. She
and Loren were divorced in 1976. After
some time she met Mr. Ken DeMary,
with whom she spent many years sharing
a common interest in the Arts.
Prior to her passing, Ms. Thompson
commented that after developing a
style of her own, she had accomplished
what she wanted as an artist. Most
of her 600 plus works of art remain in
the possession of her family. She was a
member in the Littleton Fine Arts Guild
for many years; she could be seen frequently
around Littleton painting her
favorite scenes at the Littleton Historical
Museum, Kettering Park, the Bemis
Public Library and Hudson Gardens.
A celebration of her life through her
art will be held at Littleton United
Methodist Church, 5894 South Datura
St., Littleton, Colorado, 80120 on June
25, 2018 from 3-6 p.m. in the Fellowship
