She enjoyed teaching at Third Creek Elementary for over 10 years and also taught ESL at Mitchell Community College in Mooresville. She will always be remembered for being a loving and caring person.

She is survived by her loving husband of 20 years, Tommy Thompson; mother, Josefina Spinoso; son, David Thompson, sisters, Josie Spinoso, Delfie (Dell) Oliver, and Angie (Chris) Beauregard. She was preceded in death by her father, Jose G. Spinoso.
