Obituary for Mary Margaret "Marge" Thompson

Mary Margaret “Marge” Thompson, 79, passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 1, 2018. She is preceded in death by her husband, William “Bill” R. Thompson and 5 siblings. Marge is survived by her children, William “Bill” Thompson and Crystal “Cris” Thompson; sisters, Edna Mae Duncan and Rose Ann Lock; brothers, Charles Pierce, Stanley Pierce, and Daniel Pierce. She will be greatly missed by her many nieces and nephews and a multitude of dear friends.
Marge Pierce married Bill Thompson in 1957 and worked by his side for over twenty years at the Western Auto store in Florence on Dixie Highway. After the store closed in 1980, the couple spent years traveling the country and visited every contiguous state plus Canada and Mexico.
“Bill and Marge” loved country music and could be found tearing up the dance floor jitter-bugging at Bobby Mackey’s every weekend for many years. After her beloved husband passed in October 2005, Marge focused her attention on her daughter’s shop, devoting a decade to dressing windows, assisting customers, and making many new friends.
Marge was an incredibly creative and talented woman who excelled at flower arranging, painting, sewing, and decorating. She could do absolutely anything she set her mind to. She never stopped learning and read constantly, wishing to especially thank the Boone County Library mobile unit. Her singular passion finally became the amazing flower gardens she created at her home. Her strong will and determined spirit will truly be missed by all who knew her.
