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.
