Gleneden Beach

Nov. 5, 1926 — Oct. 16, 2017

Doris (Webb) Thompson, beloved wife and mother, passed away Oct. 16, 2017, in Gleneden Beach, Oregon. She was born in 1926 in Centralia, Washington.

She married Charles Thompson in 1945, and they raised two sons, Terry and Alan. They spent the majority of their life together in Newport, Warrenton and Astoria, Oregon.

Doris, when not busy raising the two boys, worked as commercial fish and crab processor for the Columbia River Packers Association and Depot Bay Fish Co. in Newport. Doris later joined her husband, Charles, in the administration of his commercial fishing.

Doris was also active in the community. In her most recent years she enjoyed volunteering with Lighthouse Park and the Deep Sea Fisherman’s Benefit Fund in Warrenton, Oregon.

Doris loved gardening, enjoyed reading, and had a wonderful smile that could light up a room.

She is survived by her two sons, five grandsons and 11 great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, Doris wished for charitable donations to be made to the Deep Sea Fisherman’s Fund, P.O. Box 1062, Warrenton, OR 97146.

Doris will be laid to rest at Turner Twin Oaks Cemetery in Turner, Oregon.
