Obituary for Joseph Alijah Thompson (Lundbreck)

Joseph Thompson

Alijah (Joe) Joseph Thompson passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 6th, 2019 at the age of 85 years. Joe will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 55 years Edna Thompson of Lundbreck, Alberta; his children David (Christine) Thompson of Coaldale, Alberta; Cindy (Roy) Frechette of Pincher Creek, Alberta; his grandchildren Mike, Jason (Justice), Brandon, Storm (Eli), Dakota, Brooke (Dustin), his two great grandchildren Sawyer and Addalynn; his two sisters Dorothy of Red Deer, Alberta, and Mary of Lethbridge, Alberta, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Joe was predeceased by his parents Milfred and Dorothy; his brother George and most recently his son-in-law Peter Frechette.

Joe was born January 13th, 1934 in High River, Alberta. Being raised on the farm in the Longview area brought him much pride and he never strayed far from his roots. Joe enjoyed participating in the many Thompson family reunions over the years. In his younger years Joe would spend his free time fishing or hunting. Being raised on a farm taught Joe the value of hard work. Joe worked numerous jobs in road construction and in the lumber industry, finishing his working career at Cowley Forest Products.

Joe married Edna and they started a family. They spent lots of time camping. Joe loved fishing and riding trikes. Joe spent much of his free time in his garage. He loved to take things apart and usually was able to fix it and put it back together. Joe and Edna always had a large garden and would spend much time tending it. Joe also had a small greenhouse in which he grew tomatoes and cucumbers. They were a great pride for him. In his retirement Joe spent many days at the Windsor Heritage Centre visiting and having coffee with many friends and neighbors. Joe was an avid storyteller and he liked to play pranks and kid around a lot. Joe was very competitive, and he loved to play all sorts of games. He was always up for a game of cards (too many to name), marbles, horseracing, bingo, and others. He and Edna bowled every week and were quite good at it. He liked to watch old westerns and listened to Johnny Cash.

Joe was very involved in his community. He spent 30 years as a member of the Lundbreck Volunteer Fire Department. He was a founding member of the Windsor Heritage Centre in Lundbreck, and was also involved in planning Lundbreck’s 100th Year Celebration. He always helped with the Lundbreck Corn Fest, year after year. Joe was always available if there was a need and helped any way he could. Joe’s commitment to his family and friends will be greatly missed.

The family would like to thank all the nurses and staff at the Blairmore Care Centre for all the great care they gave Joe over the last 5 years.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the Lundbreck Hall on July 20th, 2019 at 2:00 PM.
