Thompson, Della Mae (1940 - 24 November 2013)

Della Mae (Marshall) Thompson died Nov. 24, 2013, at Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg, after a long struggle with kidney and lung ailments.

Della was born in La Crosse in 1940 and grew up in LaFarge, where she graduated from LaFarge High School. She attended Platteville State College, where she received a degree in English. She became a librarian in Neillsville, where she taught her entire career. One of her greatest points of pride was being on the forefront of computer technology as it applied to student research and library science. She retired in 1996 and moved to Madison, her favorite city.

She is survived by her son, Tracy, daughter-in-law Sheri and grandchildren Jake and Sarah, who live in Oakton, VA.

Della requested that no funeral or memorial service be held on her behalf; however, if you do wish to make any kind of recognition, her family believes she would appreciate a donation to
