Gisela Herta Thompson

January 7, 1937 ~ November 5, 2021 (age 84)

Tribute

Gisela Herta Thompson, age 84, of Clarksville, passed away Friday, November 5, 2021, at her residence.

Gisela was born on January 7, 1937 in Berlin, Germany to the late Erwin Werner Rohrer and Herta Rohrer. She was also preceded in death by her husband, CSM Ronald Thompson.

She is survived by her daughters, Angie (Dick) Dutton, Christie Nelson, Julie (Max) Rogers; sister, Ingrid Drepper; grandchildren, Amy Salazar, Angie (Calvin) McCormick, Kristin (Sean) Rice, Kasey Hall, Kyle (Brittany) Engert, Kaleena (Bryan) Yamnitz, and Jake Nelson; and 13 great grandchildren. 

Mom was a strong and independent woman who could fix anything. She was a wonderful cook and would be offended if you left food on your plate. Mom's struggles as a child during WWII made her more resilient. We always knew we were loved by her. 

A Celebration of Life Service will be held Wednesday, November 10, at 11:00 AM, at the Chapel of Neal-Tarpley-Parchman Funeral Home, with Rev. Joel Nulty officiating. Interment will follow at Kentucky Veterans Cemetery West, in Hopkinsville.
