May 15, 2024

Lucinda M. “Cindy” Thompson, 84, of Mountville, passed away peacefully on May 15, 2024, at Brethren Village. Born in West Chester, PA, she was the daughter of the late Earl and Ethel (Homsher) Miller. She was married to Kenneth A. Thompson with whom she shared over 65 years of beautiful marriage.

Cindy was in the first group of students to graduate from Octorara High School, class of 1957. She worked at Watt & Shand, was a volunteer for hospice, and was a dedicated member of the Lancaster Historical Society, Red Hat Society, Lancaster Coterie Club, and DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution). Cindy had a passion for shopping and antiquing and always enjoyed finding the best “stuff”. She also loved traveling and took 3 trips to Germany to explore her genealogy. She visited 2 villages, Hangen-Weisheim and Gau-Heppenheim, of where her ancestors originated. Cindy’s family will affectionately remember her for her strong legacy as a wonderful and beloved wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend.

In addition to her husband Ken, Cindy is survived by her 4 children: Lori Harmes (Christopher), Michelle Busser (Tom), Timothy Thompson (Tracy), and Kelly Pierzga (Jim); 6 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and sisters Patricia Mast and Shirley Stoltzfus. She was predeceased by her siblings Donna Kloepfer and James Miller.

Uncle Ken,
I extend my deepest sympathy to you and the family. Wishing her memory brings you as much comfort and peace as possible during this sorrowful time. May the numbering of our days remember her, speak her name, keep her goodness alive, and carry on her legacy. ❤️

Ken,
I met you last Saturday at the Longhorne Restaurant by chance and we talked for a very long time about you and your wife while our parties waited for a table.  Although I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing your wife, I was saddened when I saw that she had passed but happy that she is now resting and in peace in heaven in the presence of God.  You and your family are in my prayers at this time.
Sincerely
Mary Mowery
