She was a member of the St. Bridget’s Altar and Rosary.

Carol was preceded in death by her husband Arden Thompson; her parents Frank and Loretta Wrobleski; brothers: Frank Wrobleski Jr., Kenny Wrobleski, and James Wrobleski; sisters: Marie Lee, Shirley Staton, and Lynette Hippen; infant brothers Eugene Wrobleski and Darcy Wrobleski; brother-in-law Ray Staton, sister-in-law Janet Wrobleski, niece Kayla Wrobleski; nephew Darcy Wrobleski; father and mother-in-law Thorvald and Grace Thompson; brother-in-law Roger Thompson; nephew Lance Thompson, and a niece Paige Hjelle.
Blessed be the memory of Carol Jane Thompson.
