We lost our beloved mom and nana, Eleanor (Ellie) Thompson, on Wednesday, September 28, 2022. Ellie battled Huntington’s disease, but never let it define or stop her. Ellie died peacefully surrounded by her family. Ellie was born on August 1, 1958, in South Bend, IN, to William and Carolyn Sharum. She is a graduate of Southside High School class of 1976.
Ellie is survived by her daughter Amy Levasseur, son-in-law Steven Levasseur; her grandchildren, her pride and joy, Allison Levasseur, Bryan Maynard, and Matthew Maynard; and friend and ex-husband, Lynn Thompson. She is preceded in death by her parents, William and Carolyn Sharum.
Friends and family are invited to say a final goodbye at Willis Funeral Service in Batesville, AR, on Saturday, October 8, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the service beginning at 2 p.m. Interment will follow at Egner Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Huntington’s Disease Society at https://HSDA.org in Ellie’s memory.
The family wishes to issue a special thank you to VITAS hospice and all the staff at Franklin Ridge Nursing Home who took amazing care of Ellie.
