Laurie Thompson, 49, of University Park, passed away Sunday, October 2, 2022, at her home.
Laurie Ann Thompson, daughter of John Rex and Linda LuEllen (Sudbrock) Thompson, was born July 10, 1973, in Iowa City, Iowa. She was raised in Oskaloosa and was a 1992 graduate of Oskaloosa High School. As a youngster, she was involved in 4-H, which she really enjoyed. Her first job was at Hardee’s at age 16; after graduating, she was employed at various places, including The Oskaloosa Herald, Oskaloosa Care Center and Pella McDonalds.
Laurie married Marty Almond, and two sons were born to that union. They later divorced. Spending time with her sons, granddaughter, and her dog, Lily, brought her great joy.
Her family includes her sons: Kyle (fiancee, Alexis Kleine) Almond of Oskaloosa and Dillen Almond of Bloomfield, Iowa, a granddaughter, Lilah Rose Almond, her parents, John and Linda Thompson of University Park, and a brother, Jason Thompson of University Park.
As was her wish, Laurie’s body has been cremated. No services are currently planned. Langkamp Funeral Chapel & Crematory has been entrusted with her arrangements.
