Jeannie Marie Thompson Obituary
Our loving mother, wife, and friend to everyone she met, Jeannie Marie Thompson, 59, was called to Heaven on April 5, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. Jeannie was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on October 21, 1957, to Marjorie D Baum and Charles F Town. She traveled frequently as a kid and lived in numerous places until her parents settled in Alamogordo, NM. Jeannie was proud to raise her family in beautiful Alamogordo. She was well known for managing the Alamo Apartments for over 20 years and made countless friends. We have many memories of birthdays and special occasions spent out by the pool. She loved people and helping others and was in the customer service field with 1800 Flowers and Precheck. She was the beloved wife of John 'Reed' Thompson, they shared an unconditional love together for over 23 years. She was an incredible cook; well known for her apple pie, pumpkin pie, blueberry muffins, and cakes. She loved to make people happy. Her love was unconditional for so many. She had an incredibly generous heart and that is a rare quality in this world. She loved to go on road trips with her family and with the love of her life, Reed. She loved to crochet and many of her family and friends were blessed to receive her beautiful Afghans. She loved her birdies, fish, and grand dogs, Dakota and Cannonball. Words cannot describe the love she had in her heart for her family and friends and was the most selfless and considerate person.

She is survived by her two children and their spouses, Charles R (Felicia) Town of California, Jessica L Price (Andrew Martin) of Florida; two grandchildren, Jacolby and Savannah; her mother, Marjorie D Baum of Florida; her mother-in-law, Joann Thompson of South Carolina; her sisters, Cheryl A Town of Washington and Vicki Chatman of Florida; her sisters-in-law and spouses, Marsha (Mason) Thompson of Arizona, Mary Carol (Duncan) Edwards of South Carolina; her nephews and nieces, Jeffery (Kim) Rockey and child, Soren, Justin Rockey, Joseph (Cherilyn) Town, and children, Jayce and Sophia, Jacob (Amber) Town and children, Derrick, Gabby and Nikolis, Nora (Joshua) Jamilkowski and Helen Gerety.
