Whitney Lynn Thompson
June 10, 1991--July 5, 2011
Whitney Lynn Thompson was 20 years old, bright, fun loving and funny, loved by so many. She challenged life and brought typical joy and pain as she grew up into a beautiful young woman. Wings were added to her cock-eyed halo early Tuesday morning.
She was born in Chico, CA, attended Vina Elementary School, and graduated from the Academy of Arts, Careers and Technology in Reno in 2009. She was a smiley, happy hostess at Bistro Napa, greeting and seating its clientele.
She is survived by her mother, Jennifer Lynn Thompson (Mitch Fleischer) of Reno, her father, Jake Thompson (Laura) of Vina, CA, and her fiance, John Hume. Her Reno grandparents are Susan Lynn and Randy and Vicky Lynn. She also has a loving extended family and a "whole gaggle" of friends.
Her tattoo may have said it best: Per Augusta Ad Augusta or Through Trial to Triumph.
Her FaceBook page says it too: I am here to touch a few people and change the world!
A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Sunday, July 10 at 3 PM at Galena Park. Take the second entrance to the park and proceed to the Manzanita Group Area off the Mt. Rose Highway. Friends and family are invited to bring and share their stories and photos of Whitney.
Because of Whitney's love of animals, the family suggests instead of flowers or gifts, that charitable donations be made to the SPCA, 4950 Spectrum Blvd., Reno, NV 89506, in memory of Whitney.
