Thompson, Angel

Angel Ricea Thompson, age 44, of Cunningham, Kentucky, went to her heavenly home at 9:15 am March, 25, 2020 surrounded by her loving family. Angel was a very special woman. Many have referred to her as not only Angel, but “Their Angel”. She was brave and strong and fought courageously, inspiring so many others along her journey with breast cancer. Being the Guidance Counselor for Carlisle County High School gave Angel the chance to be a friend and mentor to many local high school students. She was an active member of Bethlehem Baptist Church and received her M.A. of Education degree from Murray State University. She was a wonderful and loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. Those that knew Angel knew she had all the attributes of what a virtuous woman should be... loving, caring and selfless, as well as witty and funny. She loved God, she loved her family and friends and she loved life. Angel is survived by her husband, Aaron Thompson; daughter, Brooke Thompson; son, Caleb Thompson all of Cunningham. She leaves behind her parents, Joy Dillon Burton and husband Rick of Arlington and father Ricky Dillon of Sikeston, Missouri; brother Dr. Dustin Dillon and wife Christine of Louisville; her nieces Jane Dillon, Becca Thompson and Cece Thompson; nephew Myles Dillon.
