Martha C. Thompson

Martha Cornelia Sliper was born Dec. 18, 1917, in Mayville, ND, to Lawrence and Thonethe (Anderson) Sliper, the third of three children. She grew up and attended schools in the upper Midwest. On Feb. 14, 1936, she married Noble Thompson, in Kidder, SD. They farmed in the Rutland, ND, area until 1958, when they moved to Moorhead. She worked for MinnKota Manufacturing Company, until retiring in 1979.

Martha was a lady of deep Christian faith. She loved her Lord and her church, where she was active in worship, Bible study and Wednesday Fellowship. She was a "perfectionist" in caring for her home, flowers, and yard, and in her personal appearance. She did ladies handwork including Norwegian Hardanger. Finally, she truly cared for her family, and loved time spent with them.
