  1. I was so sorry to hear of Dot’s passing. She was a past president and long time member of the Thompson Guild and a very strong advocate of the Thompson Guild Gift Shop. She spent many hours volunteering in the gift shop while she was still able to.
    Dot was the one that asked me 22 years ago if I would be interested in becoming a Board Member of the Thompson Guild and I’m still there as Gift Shop Committee Chairperson and Buyer.

    On behalf of Thompson Health Guild I send sincere condolences. to her family.
