Patricia Thompson Obituary

Patricia Ann Thompson of, Pawleys Island, SC, died on Sunday, March 10, 2024 after a valiant two-year battle with cancer.  She was 77.

She was born Aug. 14, 1946, in Chester, Pa., the daughter of Harry and Irene Pastuszek. She grew up in the Philadelphia area and graduated high school at Notre Dame Academy in Moylan Pa. A skilled typist, she worked in the Wilmington, Del., area for a number of years after graduation as a court stenographer, and then an executive assistant in law firms.  

She later earned her college degree. 

After marrying Phillip A. Thompson, they moved to northern New Jersey, where they raised their blended family, prior to retiring to Pawleys Island in 2005.

Mrs. Thompson’s passions were world travel with her family, singing and performing in local theater, and playing all kinds of games, including bridge, mahjong and the occasional slot machine.  Throughout her life, she volunteered helping others, particularly helping teach English as a second language, which is how she met her life-long friends Lisette and Giany Guedjo and their children, Mael and Jessica.

In addition to her husband of over 40 years, she is survived by her sons, Andrew (Margrett), Ethan (Alisa) and Jason (Robert); five grandchildren; one great-grandchild; her siblings, Harry (Bonnie) of Miramar Beach, Fla., Alescandra of Folsom, La., and Michale (Earl) of Wilmington; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A service to celebrate her life will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at Christ the King Anglican Church. Refreshments will follow the service.

Interment will be in Wilmington at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Carolina Human Reinvestment, P.O. Box 2440, Georgetown SC  29442.
