HOLD MEMORIAL SERVICES TUESDAY FOR MRS. A. D. THOMPSON

Funeral services for Mrs. [Pauline] Alan D. THOMPSON, 62, of Bedford, were held Tuesday, October 17, at the Bedford Presbyterian Church with Rev. Ray McCAIN officiating. Mrs. THOMPSON died October 13, 1972, at Clarinda Municipal Hospital.

Pauline (CARLTON) THOMPSON was born July 5, 1910 to Mr. and Mrs. C[ecil] C[laire] CARLTON of Clearfield, Iowa. She was reared in Clearfield where she professed her faith in Christ and became a member of the Methodist Church.

After finishing school in Clearfield, she continued her education at Iowa State Teachers College in Cedar Falls, Iowa [now University of Northern Iowa]. Following her graduation from State Teachers College she taught school for one year in Benton, Iowa, and for five years in Sidney, Iowa.

On June 3, 1936, she was married to Alan D[e Forrest] THOMPSON and joined the Presbyterian Church with him.

To this family were born three sons: David Alan THOMPSON, Edward Carlton THOMPSON, and Michael DeForrest THOMPSON. Also surviving are Mrs. Edith [BUCHANAN] CARLTON, her mother, and Mrs. Catherine COFER, her sister.

Her husband, Alan D. THOMPSON, father, C. C. CARLTON, and a brother, Donald Edward CARLTON, preceded her in death.

Pauline was a member of the first Presbyterian Church in Bedford, Chapter CU of the P. E. O. Sisterhood, and the Fortnightly Club.

She was a devoted wife and mother and a good neighbor. Her concerns were not only for people she knew, but also for people she would never meet in this world----the hungry, the displaced, the war weary.

In failing health, she nevertheless met life with courage. Though a good woman, there was no self-righteousness in her being.

As a good neighbor is sorely missed, so will she be.
