Dorothy (Dotty) Clark Thompson was born on April 12, 1935 in Framingham, Massachusetts and passed away January 9, 2021 in Manteca, California.

She is survived by her Sons Mark (Kathy) of Nevada, Kevin (Nena) of Lathrop and Sister Janice (Bob) Ganusko of Massachusetts.  She leaves four grandchildren, Kyle (Katey) of Sacramento, Nicole (Brian) Plimley of Lathrop, Jacque of Modesto and Erica of San Jose.  She was blessed with two great grandchildren Arlyn Thompson and Ansel Plimley and many nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by husband Chet, father James and mother Margaret Clark; sisters Hazel LaTreille, Margaret Nowell and Eleanor Foss; and brother’s Fred, Len and Howard Clark

Dotty loved everyone she met.  She loved to give hugs. (God forbid you left and didn’t get a hug!)  She was a Special Education Aide for Livermore School District for 20 years.  She lived in Medfield, MA 1935 to 1957 and moved to Livermore, CA in 1957 where she met her future husband Chet.  She loved to serve, give and send cards to all for every occasion.  She was very outgoing, loved to be with people, enjoyed traveling in their RV and stopping along the way (because she mapped out all who she wants to go see and meet all the folks she knew).  She loved her boys and loved to be together and celebrate everyone’s birthdays.  She loved to party!  She attended Calvary Community Church in Manteca.  She lived at The Commons where she loved everyone.

She will be remembered as a caring mother, grandmother and great grandmother and she will be deeply missed by all who loved her.
