Esther Thompson 1952-2020

On May 07, 1952, Esther Mae Thompson was born at the Old Charity hospital in Lafayette, Louisiana to the proud parents of Beatrice Thompson and Harding Thompson, Sr. of Washington, Louisiana. She was the 6th of 8 kids. She was Christened and baptized at an early age at Saint Marks Methodist Church, led by the late Reverend James Smith.

Esther began her education in St. Landry Parish, attending Paul Laurence Dunbar High School. She moved to Houston, Texas in 1970 and later enrolled at Texas Southern University to study nursing. While attending school, she simultaneously worked as mail clerk for the United States Postal Service (USPS) and as a ward clerk for M.D Anderson Hospital. After completing her prerequisites, she transferred to Prairie View A&M University – College of Nursing.

Upon earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 1984, she began her career as a Registered Nurse. She was employed as a Labor and Delivery Nurse for Memorial Hermann Hospital and an Occupational Health Nurse for the United States Postal Service. In 1994, she stopped working at Memorial Hermann Hospital, but continued to work for USPS, until she retired in 2009 after 32 years of service.

Esther reaffirmed her faith by becoming a faithful member of Trinity United Methodist Church, under the leadership of Pastor McGhee.  She later joined Greater Mt. Carmel Baptist Church, led by Reverend Daniel Ferdinand, where she worshipped for many years. She later became a member of South Union Missionary Baptist Church in 2019, led by Pastor Michael V. Smith.

Granny, you were amazing! Growing up you treated me as your own, no different than my brother. I Was so excited when you would come and visit! You will truly be missed! Rest I. Easy in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! To my brother, Quintin, I love you and I’m a call away! To Pops and Aunt Ingrid I am praying for y’all and I love you as well!
