Hester Ann Thompson

January 3, 1941 — June 16, 2021

Hester Ann Thompson, 80, of McLoud, was known as “Meme” to those who loved her and cared for her. Born on January 3, 1941 in Fort Cobb, Oklahoma, she was the first of 3 children born to William Foster Risenhoover and Mildred (Calvary) Risenhoover. On March 9, 1957, Hester married Charles “Charlie” Thompson, and they were together until his death on January 15, 2015 after a long fight with Alzheimer’s.Together, they had 2 children, Dennis Thompson and Peggy (Thompson) Davison. Hester was a strong woman, working right alongside Charlie to raise chickens, cattle, and a bountiful garden while also working as a cook, first at Stillwater Medical Center and later, at Perry Hospital. After Charlie had to be admitted to the Alzheimer’s unit in the VA at Norman, she moved to McLoud to be close enough to spend at least 3 days a week with him there. At that time, she began attending worship services and Bible studies with her daughter and son-in-law at Newalla Church of Christ, where she was baptized into Christ when she was 65 years old. Hester was a comfort to others. Her home was always open, and guests were always welcome. She made sure her guests, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, never left hungry or thirsty, often sending them home with even more, so they would not go home empty-handed. Hester was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Charlie. She is survived by brother Billy Risenhoover and wife Karen of Ada, OK, sister Alice Hartman of Ardmore, OK, son Dennis Thompson and wife Dayla of Owasso, OK, daughter Peggy and husband Greg Davison of McLoud, OK, granddaughter Lacey and husband Caleb Turner of Norman, OK, grandson Brad Davison and wife Ashleigh of Tecumseh, OK, granddaughter Leah and husband Kyle Mekdam of Oklahoma City, OK, Joey Davison and wife Liz Armstrong of Denver, CO, grandson Andrew Thompson and wife Nathalia of Owasso, OK, and granddaughter Molly and husband Jakob Fisher of Gaithersburg, MD as well as 5 great-grandchildren and many beloved nieces and nephews. Services will be Saturday, June 19th in Walker Funeral Service Chapel at 2:00 PM with burial in Dale Cemetery.
