Memorial and celebration of life service for Betty Jane Thompson, 91, will be at 2 p.m. Sunday at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 135 Methodist Encampment Road, Kerrville. A reception will immediately follow at the church.

Mrs. Thompson died Oct. 9, 2013.

She was born Oct. 7, 1922, in Brookfield, Ill., to the late Roy (Duke) and Mabel Reeves.

She grew up in Houston and married Sonny (Aubrey Dean) Thompson on June 9, 1961. They resided in Killeen for 43 years before relocating to Ingram eight years ago.

For 32 years, she proudly worked as a beautician helping others look their best. She was much loved and will be missed by all who knew her for her care and concern for others and beautiful smile.

From always being there with a casserole when someone was in need, to playing card games with friends, to creating and cooking for special family holidays, to attending outings and pot-lucks, to discussing politics, she thrived on people and enjoying life.

She loved her family deeply and unconditionally.

Survivors include her loving husband, Sonny Thompson; her son and daughter-in-law, Jerry and Sarah Puckett of Boerne; her daughter and son-in-law, Dianne and Charles Keaton of Marble Falls; four grandchildren, Teri Puckett Wilson and her husband, Matt, of Boerne, Scott Puckett of Boerne, Ryan Keaton and his wife, Laura, of Colorado Springs and Kelly Keaton VanCleave and her husband Rob of Dallas; four great-grandchildren, Aubri and Brady Wilson and James and Tommy Puckett; and her much-loved dachshund, Duchess.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Place Memphis, TN 38105.
