Margaret Ann Thompson, retired bursar
Margaret Ann (Dolan) Thompson, 85, of The Villages, Fla., entered into eternal life, Sunday, April 28, 2013.
Born in Upland, Pa. she was the daughter of the late Martin and Margaret (Collins) Dolan. Margaret retired after 28 years of service as a bursar for Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, Pa.
She was a woman who was kind and generous. Her motherly nature was a comfort and inspiration to her several nieces and nephews. She always possessed a desire to help others as her volunteer work in her church testified. Margaret enjoyed bible study, playing golf, gardening, cards and was a great listener. She loved to travel with Hawaii being her favorite destination. She was a fun person to be with as she had a knack of being able to laugh at herself and enjoy a good joke.
Margaret came to The Villages with her late husband Arthur from Millsboro in 2000. She was a Roman Catholic and was a member of St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church, Summerfield, Fla. Sadly, she was predeceased by her husband of 57 years, Arthur J. Thompson in 2006.
Margaret leaves several nieces and nephews and grand-nieces and -nephews.
A visitation for family and friends will be held from 11 a.m. to noon, Tuesday May 14, at Parsell Funeral Homes & Crematorium, Dodd-Carey Chapel, 307 North Bedford Street, Georgetown. Chapel committal will be at 1 p.m. at the Delaware Veterans Cemetery, Millsboro.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church, Summerfield.
