Barbara Thomas

December 22, 1938 — November 24, 2018

Barbara Ann Thomas, 79, of La Verne, CA, passed away peacefully Saturday evening, November 24, 2018, at the Villa St. Vincent in Crookston with her daughter and son-in-law, Terri and Tom Noah, at her side. She was born in Crookston on December 22, 1938 to Charles and Edith Bendickson. Most of her years were spent in California.

Barbara lived a life of deep and abiding faith in the Lord, and the comfort found in her love for her Church. She enjoyed singing with her friends in the choir, and spending quiet moments each and every day reading her bible. Listening to country music and dancing were among her favorite pastimes. Barbara cherished her family dearly. She was very proud of each of them and their many accomplishments, and she will be very lovingly remembered and sadly missed by all who shared in her life.

She was preceded in death by her grandson, Kyle Cupp; parents, Charles and Edith Bendickson; and brothers: Clarence, Roy, Carroll, Earl, Lloyd, and Kenneth Bendickson. Blessed be Barbara’s memory.
