Anne Elizabeth Thompson

Anne Elizabeth (Johnson) Thompson , 88 , passed away Sunday March 9, 2014 surrounded by family at Barren County Health Care Center, Glasgow, Kentucky.

Anne Elizabeth was born in Park, Kentucky on April 30, 1925 to the late James Frank and Marcia (Wisdom) Johnson. She was a sister to seven siblings and was preceded in death by all four brothers: William David (Bill) Johnson, Paul Reed Johnson, Frank Cogin (Red) Johnson, and James Courtney Johnson.

Known as "Miss Anne" by countless residents and staff of Barren County Health Care Center, she had lived there for the past ten years. She was a champion speller and many times represented BCHCC in competition with area nursing homes. She also attended conferences on the aged as an advocate for nursing home residents. She was an avid reader and graduated from Center High School.

She was a veteran, serving in the Women's Army Corps after World War II. She was trained in the psychiatric nursing and continued to work in the field in both Louisville and Hopkinsville after leaving the military.

Anne Elizabeth married Lilburn Thompson, later in life, and lived on his family farm in Christian , County. Upon Marriage, she joined the Little River Church of Christ of Hopkinsville, KY. However, the Park United Methodist Church remained close to her heart as home church to several generations of the Johnson family. Later, she returned to the family farm at Park to live with her brother Paul until his passing.

Anne Elizabeth's twin sister, Mary Eugenia Hiser and her oldest sister, Emily Montrose Divan, along with numerous nieces and nephews, great-neices and great-nephews mourn her passing.
