It is with profound sadness that the family of Jim Thomson, announce his passing on Thursday, March 30, 2023, at the age of 92. Married for 68 years, Jim is survived by his wife, Marjorie (Marj) (nee Cordingley); and his three children, sons Glenn (Karen), Bruce (Helena) and daughter Jean (Lydia). He was blessed with a large, loving family with 12 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Jim, Dad, Grandpa and great Grandpa was a family man with a very big smile and an even bigger heart. We will miss you. “God has you in his keeping, but we have you in our hearts.”
Jim’s family are thankful for the wonderful care provided by the nurses, aides and staff at the Memory Care unit at Chartwell Griesbach and are especially grateful for the compassionate care he received in his last days at the Kipness Centre for Veterans. The kindness shown to Jim, Marj and the rest of the family is so appreciated and will be remembered as a special blessing at a most difficult time.
