December 28, 1924 - December 6, 2023

Mary Sue Stephens Thompson, age 98, passed away at CarePartners Solace Center in Asheville on December 6, 2023. A native of Jackson County, she was the daughter of the late Spurgeon and Beulah Crawford Stephens. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Don Thompson, who died in 1986; one son, Jeff who died in 2021; five brothers, Harold, Lester, James "Poss", Wayne, and Jerry; and two sisters, Evelyn Hamilton and Jean Lindsey. She is survived by two sons, Mike Thompson, and his wife, Carol, of Waukesha, WI and Don Thompson, and his wife, Colleen, of Pittsburg, TX; and one daughter, Linda Sease, and her husband, Mike, of Asheville, NC; one sister, Eloise Stephens of Cullowhee, NC; seven grandchildren; and ten great-grandchildren.

Although Mary Sue was a native of North Carolina, she lived for over 40 years in South Dakota with her husband, Don, while raising their family. After his passing, she returned to her roots and lived out the rest of her life in western North Carolina. She enjoyed reading, crocheting, spending time with friends and family, and baking her legendary Christmas cookies.  

A graveside service will be held at a later date in South Dakota.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Haywood Christian Ministries, 150 Branner Avenue, Waynesville, NC 28786.

The care of Mrs. Thompson has been entrusted to Wells Funeral Home of Waynesville.
