Mrs. Grace Mashon Thompson was born on Jan. 18, 1921, in Independence, Louisiana, the daughter of Wilson and Mary Glass Mashon.

Grace was a devoted Christian and loved her church family at First Baptist where she was an active member for over 60 years.

Grace knew no stranger, her kindness and love showed in many friends and family she adored. Although she is not physically with us anymore, she has left her presence in the hearts of many and for that, she will never be forgotten. We ask that you remember her through her acts of kindness toward others in need. Her family remains grateful for your thoughts, prayers, and love during this difficult transition.
