Virginia Ester (Glotzbach) Thompson passed March 20th 2013 at 9:30 a.m. at the Presbyterian Homes in Quitman Ga.
Virginia was born August 15th, 1922 to Otto J. and Irma E. Glotzbach in Paxico Kansas. Her family lived briefly in Lillis, Kansas, moving ultimately to Wamego Kansas. Virginia graduated from Wamego High School in 1939, and then attended Kansas State University. During this time she met her husband Louis Carlton Thompson who was stationed at Fr. Riley Kansas. They were married on November 13, 1943 and were married for sixty five years before her husband’s passing in 2008.
After Louis finished his Master’s Degree at Kansas State University the couple moved to Minneapolis Kansas, where Louis taught high school and Virginia was a domestic engineer. In 1967 the couple moved to Madison Florida. Louis became the Athletic Director at North Florida Junior College while Virginia became the college bookstore manager. They both worked for the college for over twenty years before retiring.
Virginia was known by her family as an excellent cook, mother and animal lover. She was also known as a superb dancer. Her family and friends have fond memories of their attending College dances where Virginia and Louis would liven up the crowd. Her two sons recall that every Sunday night the breakfast table would be moved as the couple would Swing, Waltz and Foxtrot to the Lawrence Welk Show. Virginia was the first Republican Committee Woman in Madison County and served in this position for many years. Virginia and Louis attended Grace Presbyterian Church in Madison County for many years before his passing and her moving to Quitman Ga.

As well as four grand-children, five great grandchildren and two sisters Joyce (Glotzbach) Green of Overland Park Kansas and Patricia Irma (Glotzbach) Huddleston of Camillus, New York.
