Anna "Ann" Thompson
Archer - Anna "Ann" Bass Thompson went to be with the Lord on December 16, 2020, three days shy of her 75th birthday. She was born in St. Louis, Missouri to Kenneth and Nina Bass. She lived most of her life in Florida, ending up in Archer (Levy County), Florida.
She started her working career with HUD in Atlanta, Georgia where she met her husband of 56 years, Gerald P. Thompson. She became a loving homemaker and mother of 4 children, a grandmother to 11 and great-grandmother to 3. Later in life she worked for the Alachua County Sheriff's Office for 9 years. She was an active member of the choir at North Central Baptist Church until health issues prevented her participation. She had several hobbies including reading, knowing all kinds of trivia, collecting lighthouses, and solving crossword puzzles. She enjoyed making things through crocheting, counted cross stitching, and later in life she developed a love for coloring. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends. She never met a stranger and accepted all into her circle of caring.

I worked with Ann for several years at the Sheriffs Office although in different divisions. On many occasions I had cause to come to the records section/computer room and I would always try to seek out Ann if possible for assistance. She always found time to help me and always made me feel welcome . Ann was a kind soul and will be missed by all who had the fortune of meeting her.
