Sandra Thompson

     Sandra Wolfe Thompson passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 7th, 2024, in her home holding her husband's hand.  

     She graduated from Aliquippa High School and Muskingum University, New Concord, OH.  She did her MA work at Univeristy of Pittsburgh and taught Advanced Placement English for two years.  

     She married J. Stark Thompson with whom she shared over 60 years of marriage.  While Stark was at the Ohio State University, Sandy worked for Chemical Abstracts in, then, new areas of computer technology.  

     She moved to Newark, DE when Stark took his first assignment with DuPont; to California, to London, and to Brussels and then back to Kennett Square, PA.  Her love for travel led to establishing Kennett Travel with Neil Joines.  The agency and her clients became her passion.  Sandy loved her job and her staff, many of whom became life-long friends.

     She served on the Chester County Chamber of Commerce.  She especially enjoyed many years on the board of the Kennett Symphony of Chester County.  She was a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, DE.  

     Sandy loved baseball! Above all, she enjoyed being a wife, a mother, and a grandmother.  Her family and friends were the most important part of her life.  

She is survived by her husband, Stark; their son, Doug, and his former wife, Natalia, and their daughter, Valerie, of Kennett Square, PA; son, Gregg, and his wife, Heather, and their children Gavin, Payton, and Gates of New Concord, OH. In lieu of flowers, Sandy requested donations be made to the Kennett Symphony, where she dedicated many years of service and held it very close to her heart. Online donations can be made here: https://kennettsymphony.org/ or checks can be mailed to:  Kennett Symphony, PO Box 72, Kennett Square, PA 19348.
