Obituary for Allen Thompson



Allen Forrest Thompson, 86, passed away peacefully on April 27, 2021 at his home in Allendale, Missouri with his wife Roberta and their four children at his side. 


Allen was born on June 2, 1934 as the second of five children to Forrest and Oleta Thompson.  He had an older sister Joyce, a younger sister Shirley, and younger brothers Glen and Bill.  Allen was raised in Allendale and graduated from high school in Grant City in 1952.  He married Roberta Findley in March 1953 and they celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary earlier this year.


Allen and Roberta lived and worked in St. Joseph for a few years before moving back to Worth County to start farming in the late 1950’s.  Allen farmed until the mid-1980’s before going to work for the Missouri Conservation Department and retiring in 2002.  He was always proud to be part of the Allendale Community and is remembered for going out of his way to help others.  As Allen’s health declined in his later years, the Allendale Community graciously returned the favor and his family is very grateful for that support.


Allen was proceeded in death by his parents, his sister Joyce, and his brother Glen.  He is survived by his wife Roberta of the home; son Bruce (Rhonda) Thompson of Kirksville, Missouri; son Brian Thompson of Allendale, Missouri; daughter Beth (Terry) Snyder of Minburn, Iowa; daughter Belinda (David) Murray of Swan, Iowa; sister Shirley (Jim) Steward of Albuquerque, New Mexico; brother Bill (Carey) Thompson of Chariton, Iowa; 9 grandchildren; 5 great-grandchildren; and various nieces and nephews.


Celebration of Life for family & friends will be 1:00-3:00 P.M. Saturday, June 5, 2021 at the Allendale Community Hall in Allendale, Missouri.
