GUYMON, Okla. - Mona Jocalee Thompson, 70, died Friday, July 9, 2004.

Services will be 10 a.m. Monday in First Christian Church Disciples Center with the Rev. Terry Neel officiating. Burial will be in Elmhurst Cemetery by Bunch-Roberts Funeral Home.

The eldest of four daughters born to Jenny Nadine (Killion) and William Wesley Forester, she grew up on the family dairy farm near Arnett Oklahoma. She married Melvin L. Thompson Oct. 14, 1950, in Arnett. They came to Guymon in 1954. She worked as receptionist for Medical Arts Clinic and later as a telephone operator for GTE. She was active in First Christian Church of Guymon, a long-time choir member and served as an elder. She loved to play the piano and sing, giving her daughters early exposure to music and encouraging them in this. An avid reader she also loved to travel. After retiring from GTE she worked at the Tourism Visitor's bureau where she happily shared information about Guymon and the Panhandle, and was excited to meet people from all over the world.

Survivors include three daughters, Jodene Thompson of Ponca City, Judy Holzberger of Comanche and Janet Dodson of Hardesty; three grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and three sisters, Vesta Shelton of Wichita, Kan., Ellen Hopper of Tuttle and Marilyn McCoullough of Chandler.

The family suggests memorials be to Guymon First Christian Church Building Fund and may be sent in care of Bunch-Roberts Funeral Home, P.O. Box 1112, Guymon, OK 79342.
