Brenda Joann Thompson

Conway, AR, 1949 - 2019

Brenda Joann (Sebourn) Thompson, 69, died peacefully Saturday, August 3, 2019, in Conway, Arkansas. She was born on October 21, 1949, in England, Arkansas, by a midwife over the England movie theater as a parade passed through the streets below.
Brenda was a farmer's daughter who lived from Arkansas to California. Her family moved frequently with rarely a chance to make long-lasting friendships. When Brenda was around five years old, she was struck with polio and fought back to become a healthy, smart, amazing woman. In her early 60's Brenda began showing signs of Alzheimer's. She worked hard at living her life independently with this diagnosis. During the past year Brenda was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia, which progressed swiftly over the past six months.
Brenda was an amazing mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend. She was beautiful, smart, elegant, refined and kind. She loved being a Grandmama and took that job seriously! Her family is comforted in knowing that Brenda is now at peace with no confusion, frustration or sadness.
