Thompson, Barbara

April 22, 1935 – May 6, 2020,
at the age of 85 years

It is with saddened hearts that our family announces the passing of our mother Barbara Thompson at the age of 85. She is preceded in death by her parents, Thelma and Ross May, also by her Sister Marilyn May Peacock. Also, by her first Husband Jim Drew and her second husband Clayton Thompson. Barb is survived by her 4 children, daughters Jami, Jode and Janice and son Terry. When she wasn’t being Grandma to her 6 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren, she was honorary Grandma to everyone who was fortunate enough to meet her. Family meant everything to Barb and one thing she was passionate about, second only to her love of her church family at Shuswap Community Church.  Barb was born in Calgary Alberta and passed away in hospital in her beloved Salmon Arm, British Columbia. After missing Clayton so dearly since he passed in 2014, Barb is now reunited with him for the last time. She will be remembered fondly by all who knew her and is sorely missed.



  1. I was broken hearted when I heard the news. Words cannot express the flood of memories. I am grateful for my time spent with the Thompson family. Condolences to all. Sister Sue.

  2. A wonderful lady who was always a great “mom” to all of us.
    I had the pleasure of being one of her “kids” when we were in
    our teens and early twenties. Maybe she’ll meet my parents and
    Thank you Barb for your natural genuine love and kindness!
    A role model for all of us growing up.
