Ginger Thompson Obituary

Ginger Rose Thompson was called back to her Heavenly home on May 6, 2023 after fighting a courageous 3-year battle with cancer.  She passed away in her home with her husband and children at her bedside. 

Ginger was born on August 13, 1980.  She was the firstborn child of Kurtis and Linda Weber and grew up in Freedom. She was an exceptional big sister to her other siblings- helpful, kind, motherly, and supportive. She created opportunities to be together with family, often treating each as a special occasion.

After graduation from SVHS in 1998, she headed to Utah State University.  While there she met Kenny Thompson (son of Ron and Ann Thompson of Providence). After that her interest in school changed to interest in Kenny. They were married in the Logan temple on June 11, 1999. They lived in Logan and then moved to Star Valley.

Throughout her life Ginger had many friends and always sought to add more, recently adding many health care professionals to her friend circle. She always put her best foot forward whether that involved buying new shoes, throwing a party to remember, or making an ordinary event an extraordinary experience. Ginger loved to try out new recipes and experiment with food. One of her last acts of love was to compile all of her favorite recipes into a cookbook for her children.

Ginger’s true joy came from motherhood. Ginger and Kenny took pride in their three kids Tanner (22), Kamryn (19), and Zackary (15). They could be found traveling many miles to all of their sporting events. The kids in turn were great cheerleaders to her as she returned to school and received her Bachelors degree from USU in 2020. Ginger was grateful to not only be a mother, but to become a mother-in-law when Tanner met and married Brinley.

As an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Ginger served in a variety of capacities, mostly involving youth.  She truly loved those with whom she worked, and put her whole heart into helping and serving them.

Ginger lived a life of generous service and loved anonymously serving others. When it was her turn to accept help, she was gracious and overwhelmed by the generosity of others. Part of the way she made it through the chemo and its side effects was by focusing on gratitude.  She developed a strong relationship with her Savior and recorded her blessings in a notebook until she had filled it and had to start a new one.  She constantly said that people are so good.

Ginger is survived by her husband Kenny Thompson, her children Tanner (Brinley), Kamryn, and Zackary Thompson, her parents Kurtis and Linda Weber, her siblings Krista (Mark) Hirschi, Marcus (Lxi) Weber, Bobbi (Michael) Morton, and Natalie (Daniel) Peterson, and her grandparents Kent and Roma Henderson.  She is preceded in death by her brothers Billy and Nick, her grandparents Rex and Fern Weber, and her mother-in-law, Ann Thompson. 

Funeral services will be held on Friday May 12 at 12 Noon in the Thayne LDS Chapel, with a viewing prior to the service from 10:30am - 11:45am.  There will be a night viewing on Thursday, May 11 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm in the Schwab Funeral Chapel in Thayne. Interment will be in the Freedom cemetery.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
