Beautiful, inside and out. That was our beloved DeAnne Jean Natterstad Thompson. She was born November 17, 1937, in Storden, MN to the late Johan and Helen Natterstad. After living most of her childhood and teenage life on a Minnesota farm, her family moved west to Seattle, WA where she would create a vibrant life as a loving wife and mother. DeAnne owned and operated her own beauty salon, Classic Images. She married the late Ralph Firman and they had three children together. After the passing of Mr. Firman, DeAnne found her way back to Minnesota to heal. Reconnecting with family and friends of her childhood, she found comfort in her Minnesota roots. In January 1992, she married the late Jerry Thompson, and together they created a beautiful life on the farm she knew as her childhood home.

In addition to being a farm wife, she was active in WELCA, a women’s group that made quilts to share with people in need. She was also a member of the Women’s Auxiliary for the American Legion, in Storden, MN. After the passing of her late husband, Jerry Thompson, DeAnne spent her time soaking up time with family (and the sun) in Savannah, GA. She helped babysit two of her great-grandchildren while enjoying living with her daughter, DeAnne, and her family. DeAnne passed peacefully into heaven on September 30, 2023.

She is survived by her daughter, DeAnne (Frank) Warnekros of Savannah, GA; son, Richard (Barb) Firman of Texas; stepsons, Scott Thompson of Minnesota, and Jeff (Kari) Stevens of Alabama; and stepdaughter, Kathy Carey of Oklahoma. DeAnne is also survived by her many grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her first husband, Ralph Firman, her second husband, Jerry Thompson, her daughter, Deborah Tonsgard, and her grandson, Jerry Tonsgard.
