Obituary of Deb Thompson (Hanna)
It is with tremendous sadness the family of Debra Colleen Thompson announce her passing at the Lennox and Addington County General Hospital surrounded by her loving family on Thursday, November 24, 2022, in her 70th year. Loving and devoted wife of Miles Thompson for 52 years. Proud and cherished mother of Ken, Jackie, Jeff (Julie) and Kim (Rick). Extremely proud grandmother of Kendra, Katie, Daniel, Taylor (Isaac), Emily, Matthew and Hailey. Dear sister of Grant Hanna (Shawn), Phil Hanna (Carol Anne), Judy Joyce (Jerry), Susan Baker (Hughie), Gwen England (late Rick) and Robin Asselstine (Dave). Predeceased by her parents Audrey and Kenneth Hanna. Also lovingly remembered by her sister-in-law Betty Wales (late Robert), many nieces and nephews and their families, many dear friends, and the community.
Deb was not only a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend, she was an amazing woman who volunteered endlessly and dedicated her time to the community. An Educational Assistant by day, a Politician by night. She served Stone Mills Township and L&A County well. She was the Township’s first female Reeve and a Councillor for many years. She was always on the go, thinking of new ideas and events that would support others and the community. She was also a dedicated member of the Tamworth and District Lions Club, a proud member and organizer for Centreville United Church and the Centreville Agricultural Society. Deb also loved children and could often be found at different sporting events cheering on the local team. It did not matter the time of day or the time of year, she was always thinking of things to do and ways to help others. She was a true example of selflessness and dedication. The family would like to especially thank the staff at L&A Hospital for all their care and patience. You will be greatly missed and forever loved Mom, Grandma Debbie, Deb.
