She was born February 17, 1924 in Kansas City, Ks. and graduated from Westport High School in 1942. While working at Farmers Insurance in Kansas City, she met and married the late Mel Thompson in 1944.

She worked at the Mound City News Independent newspaper as an editor. In 1978 they relocated to St. Joseph, Mo. where Marian owned & operated The Candie Shoppe. In 1986 she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of earning her college degree and attended Missouri Western State College, graduating in 1992. After Mel’s death in 1999, Marian moved to Overland Park, Ks. to be closer to family & to play bridge at The Bridge Studio where she played as a Life Master.

Mel and Marian loved to travel and especially with Marian’s sister Gladys Bartholow, Lenexa, Ks., and her late husband George. Marian was a lifelong learner and a lover of art.
