Obituary for Mrs. Karen Elizabeth Thompson

November 26, 1948 - June 5, 2018
Bulverde, Texas | Age 69


Karen Elizabeth Thompson, 69, passed away on Tuesday, June 5th, 2018, after a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer. Karen was born November 26, 1948 in Okemah, Oklahoma, graduated Del City High School in 1966, and proudly attended the University of Oklahoma. In addition to Oklahoma, Karen lived in California, Colorado, Montana, and Houston, Texas. In 1986 she purchased land in Bulverde, Texas and built her dream home, where she lived until her passing. While she called the Texas Hill Country home, Karen loved to travel, and snow-skiing was a favorite past-time.

Karen had many fond memories of her family, and we take comfort in knowing she has been reunited with many who went to heaven before her. She joins her mother, El Wanda Ruth (Armstrong) Henson; her father, Eugene Obrey Henson; her son, Jason Thompson; her grandmother, Bessie (Yaden) Armstrong; her grandfather, Hobert Armstrong; her uncle, Marvin Pilgrim; as well as many others.

Karen will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Jack Blanchette; her brother, Thomas Henson; her grandson, Jarod Thompson; her aunt, Anna Pilgrim; her niece, Jamie Lilley; her great-nephew, Jack Lilley; as well as many, many, other family and friends.

A celebration of Karen's life will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, June 16th at Riverside Community Church, 1100 Bulverde Road, Bulverde, Texas 78163.
