MARILYN FRANCES THOMPSON

OBIT MarilynThompson

A true California girl, Marilyn Frances Thompson died in Utah on Thanksgiving after a brief illness.  

Born on May 23, 1927, she grew up in Santa Paula, amid citrus groves and small storefronts. In the 1930s, her mother taught her art, her father thrift. In the 1940s, including her college years, she drew the eyes of many young men and in 1951 married the first of three husbands, Neil Hicks, with whom she bore her only child, Michael, now an author, composer, and professor. Her third marriage, to Paul Thompson, proved decisive: she knew she’d “finally got it right.” (Paul passed away in 1991.)
