Susan Marie Thompson (nee Wisz) joined our Heavenly Father on February 16, 2014 at the age of 59 after a battle with ALS. Sue was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She was born January 25, 1955 in Tonawanda, New York. Sue joined the United States Army where she served 2 years before she was medically discharged. She married John Thompson on April 17, 1979, and became a United States Navy wife. Their travels took them from Norfolk, Virginia to Key West, Florida to Groton, Connecticut to Honolulu, Hawaii where they spent 13 years. After their time in Hawaii, they came to San Antonio, Texas. Sue became active in her church, holding many different callings for the Lord.
