Obituary for Cecile Thompson

Cecile Thompson passed away on January 24, 2019. She was born in Seattle, Washington on March 13, 1942 to Richard and Ardel Stewart.
She grew up in Burien, Washington and graduated from Burien High School in 1960. She worked in the Seattle area for several years before marrying Larry Thompson on February 12, 1967 in Alameda, California. They lived in South Dakota and Minnesota for several years before returning to Washington in 1972.
Cecile worked for Boise Cascade for a few years. She then started working at Centennial School District as a Cook’s helper in the early 80s. In 1986, she was hired on by the David Douglas School District as a Cook’s helper at Ventura Park Elementary. Two years later, she was promoted to a Head Cook’s position at Mill Park Elementary. She stayed in this position for another 23 years, before retiring in the 2010-2011 school year.
Her favorite thing in life was her dedication to the children in her schools. In 1979, Cecile volunteered to coach her then 9 year old daughter’s soccer team through the Lynch Wood Soccer Club. The team name was “The Newcomers” and they only lost one game in five years.
Cecile is preceded in death by her father and mother. She is survived by husband Larry, daughter Nicole, son Richard, daughter-in-law Emily, grandsons Dakota and Mitchell Thompson who were the loves of her life. Cecile is also survived by sisters Laurie Whetherbee and Kathy Pike, and brother Scott Stewart.
