Pauline Thompson, age 86, passed away on April 14, 2022 at her home in Modesto. She was born on August 19, 1935 in Briggs, Oklahoma, to Alvin Lloyd Brace and Ruby Lucille Jackson Bressler.
Pauline is survived by Linda (daughter) and Wayne Mathis (son in law) of Modesto, CA; Andrea Atkins of Homewood, AL; John Mathis of Seattle, WA (grandchildren); Trevor Mathis, Matthew and Emma Atkins (great grandchildren); Margaret (sister) and Bill Murray (brother-in-law). She is also survived by sisters-in-law Carrol and Brenda Brace; Brenda and Judy Thompson; Brothers Wayne and Delbert Bressler; Brothers-in-law Bill, Wes and Herb Thompson; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Pauline was a creative soul and had a passion for making dolls, ornaments and cards. She would send these thoughtful cards and snow baby ornaments that sparkle and shine so her family would have a token of her love and let them know she is always thinking of them.
Pauline had a fierce love for all of her family. She enjoyed spending quality time with her family, she was especially fond of spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Pauline would pray for those she loved every single night, sending blessings for safety, health and wellbeing to us all.
Pauline worked for Owens-Illinois Glass Company for 36 years. This is where she had made lifelong friendships with some of her dearest friends. She was lucky enough to have the love and support of these friends until her last day.
Pauline’s pure and kind soul will be surely missed. There are not many people in this world we are lucky enough know or love like Pauline, someone who was so selfless and caring. We would like to honor her spirit of love and ask that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to Community Hospice Foundation. ■
