Nancy “Nan” F. Thompson, Bennington, Kansas passed away Wednesday August 12, 2020. She was born in Butler County, PA on December 24, 1935, the daughter of the late Lewis Baynard and Mary Kathryn (Crouch) Heller. Nan was united in marriage to the love of her life and soul mate, Allyn L Thompson on March 11, 1955. They both were actively enlisted in the Air Force stationed at Keecler Air Force Base in Biloxi, MS when they met. Nan held several different jobs over her 84 years. Her longest stint of 18 years was for Beech Aircraft/Raytheon. Her greatest love of jobs was helping the elderly stay at home and caring for them. She was a true caregiver at heart.

Nan was one of twelve children of which six have preceded in death, Robert, Dorothy, Donald, William, Richard and Charlotte. Surviving her are Helen, Althea, Paul, Alma and Janie. Grandchildren include Dacy (Wade) Woods, Dustin (Michelle) Thompson, Stoney (Jamie) Burns, Ryan (Kate) Burns, Alexandra Winingham, Trevor Wolf, Lyndi (Jeremy) Bernard, Courtney (Griff) Burdett and Whitney (Blaise) Kaufman.

Lisha, Kay, Wyatt and Family,

We send out special thoughts and deepest sympathy to you and your family. We enjoyed living next to Nancy and Allyn when they were our neighbors in Solomon. Always a laugh was to be had when we talked with Nancy. We enjoyed hearing stories of her past experiences in the armed forces and working at Hawker, plus anything that was on her mind that day. She was a good person and friend, she will be truly missed.

Craig, Marcy, Lucas and Maya Newcomer

Wyatt, Kay & Lisha,
Our deepest sympathy at this sad time! We wanted to be there w/ you tonight but no crowds for us, doctors orders
as of late. Nan and Tom were so much fun and we have great memories over the years w/ them. Loved visiting w/ Nancy
on the phone these past few yrs. and talk about old times. Had a lot of laughs remembering Tom & Stan's Sheriff's Posse Days and all the great times we had together. We will miss them and the beautiful people that they are! Take care of yourselves and always remember and never forget that we love you! The kids say "Hi" and want you to know that you are in our thoughts and
prayers always.
Stan and Jane
Blain, Stacia & Molly
