Obituary of Amelia Jean Thompson

Amelia Jean (Guiberson) Thompson, age 68, passed away peacefully on May 19th, 2020 in Puyallup, Washington.


She was born on October 6th, 1951 to Paul & Elizabeth ( Brashear) Guiberson in Butte, Montana. She was the 4th of Paul & Elizabeths 5 children ( 3 boys & 2 girls). Amelia graduated from Home of the Good Shepard- St. Euphraisa’s High School, Seattle in 1969. She would later go on to receive her AA from Highline Community College in Des Moines, Wa.


For many years, Amelia ( Jean or Jeannie to most her friends and family) would work as a bookkeeper and office manager. She made many friends along the way, with her infectious humor and love for others. Her family will forever cherish all the recipes, needlepoint art and hand sewn stockings she made them through the years.


Amelia is survived by her daughter Kelly (Greg) Wetterhus. Grandsons Zachary Steenbergen & Austin Wetterhus. Great-grandson Koen Steenbergen. Brothers Paul (Margie) Guiberson, Roger (Kathy) Guiberson and sister Teresa (Richard) Jorgensen. Many nieces and nephews as well. 


The family will hold a private memorial later in the summer.


 “ A sister, a mother, a grandma too

   This is the legacy we have from you.

   You taught us love and how to fight,

   You gave us strength, you gave us might.

   A stronger person would be hard to find

   And in your heart, you were always kind.

   You fought for us all in one way or another

   Not just as a sister, not just as a mother.

   For all of us you gave your best

   Now the time has come for you to rest.

   So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep

   Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep.”
