Sharon Ann Thompson (1948-2020)

Our lovely Sharon Ann Thompson went to be eternally in God’s hands on October 23, 2020 after a several month battle with cancer. She was born to Edmund and Mildred (Huck) Mueller on October 13, 1948 in Cuero, Texas. Sharon graduated from Nordheim High School in 1967 and attended Nixon-Clay Business College in Austin. She worked for many years as a secretary and in office supervisory positions. In each setting she was the non-anxious presence to whom others could turn for a listening ear.

She married Jeff Thompson in December of 1979. She was always Jeff’s mainstay as he served Lutheran congregations as their pastor in Nordheim, Runge, Fredericksburg, Robstown, Cuero and Wimberley, Texas.

Sharon is preceded in death by her parents; by her brother Gary; and by her brother-in-law Bill Fronek.

Sharon is survived by her husband Jeff of Kyle, Texas; children Barbara Rath (Stephen) of Cuero, Bruce Nickell (Julie ) of Humble, Brian Nickell (Leah) of Seguin, Brent Nickell (Leah) of Leander, Jennifer Boylan (Sean) of Kyle and Christopher Thompson (Angela) of San Antonio; by 2 sisters, Sandra Fronek of Thorndale and Lerna Hansel (David) of Montgomery; by one sister-in-law, Nancy Mueller of Watauga; by grandchildren Christen Spivey (Josh) of College Station; Cody Rath of Cuero, David Nickell of Humble and Jessica Nickell of Humble, Tristan Nickell and Elizabeth Nickell of Leander, Ethne Ferrell of Kyle, and Sam Boylan of Kyle; and by great grandchildren Taryn Spivey and Levi Spivey of College Station. She is also survived by a niece and four nephews.
