ALLEGANY - Carol J. Thompson died peacefully, at the age of 90 Thursday (Oct. 11, 2018) at Olean General Hospital.

Born June 11, 1928, in Clymer, she was the daughter of Gilbert and Minnie Rhebergen Ton. On Nov. 3, 1950, she married Gail P. Thompson, who predeceased her on July 3, 2013.

Her nursing career spanned 50 years, first at hospitals in Jamestown and Corry, Pa., and later for more than 20 years at St. Bonaventure University, where she retired as director of Health Services in 1993.

Carol was devoted to her family and her community. With her husband, she was a longtime volunteer for Meals on Wheels. She also played golf and was active in area bridge clubs.

(Edwin) Broad of Buffalo; three grandchildren, Katie Thompson, Scott (Michelle) DeRose and Matthew (Jill) DeRose; three great-grandchildren, Emma DeRose, Elliott DeRose and Jacob DeRose; a sister, Marlea Brown of Chautauqua.
