Anna Lee Thompson

Anna Lee Thompson was born October 17, 1947, in Winona, Missouri, to Other and Josefeen (Bradshaw) Counts.

She departed this life peacefully on November 12, 2023, at Mercy St. Francis Hospital in Mountain View, Missouri, at the age of 76.

Anna was united in marriage to Raymond Lee Thompson on March 23, 1964, and to this union, four children were born. Raymond Lee preceded her in death on September 10, 2005. Also preceding her in death are her parents; son, Ricky; granddaughter, Dianna Walker; twin sister, Donna Counts; brother, Tex Counts; father-in-law, Harm Thompson; mother-in-law, Beulah Thompson; six brothers-in-law; two sisters-in-law; and two sons-in-law.

She is survived by her son, Mickey Thompson; daughter, Shella Myers; daughter, Donna Weber and husband, Bobby, all of Eminence, MO; one granddaughter, Tamber Searles and husband, Gary of Mountain View, MO; one grandson, Ozzy Walker and wife, Kristan of Eminence, MO; four great-grandchildren, Brentley, Allison, and Camden Searles, and Jaxson Walker; her sister, Shirley Thompson and husband, Paul; her brother, Rex Counts and wife, Brenda; and two sisters-in-law, along with a host of nieces and nephews.

Anna was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She enjoyed being outdoors, gardening, doing crafts, cooking, listening to music, and spending time with her family and friends, and of course her pets. When she was well, Anna loved volunteering at the Shannon County Food Pantry and attending all the events in her precious small town. Anna always made sure those around her were taken care of, even if that meant she had to go without. She was a kind and gentle listening ear for any who may have needed it and was the best mender for a hurting or broken heart. Anna was one of the sweetest souls to have ever walked this earth and will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to know and love her.

Funeral services will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, at Yarber Mortuary, Eminence, Missouri, with Pastor Randy Ferguson officiating. Visitation will be held prior to the service from 1-3:00 p.m. also at the funeral home. Interment will be in Pine Lawn Cemetery in Winona, Missouri.
