Her mother described Thompson as athletic, a hair and makeup whiz, as well as a role model to her five younger brothers and sisters.

“She was very helpful to her siblings,” Stevenson said. “She was very outgoing and made sure that everything was taken care of with them. She was a leader.”

A GoFundMe page was created for Thompson’s funeral arrangements. Her funeral service will be held on March 18, and she will be buried in the Oakland Cemetery in Navasota, Texas, according to her obituary.
