Darla Thompson

Tuesday, June 9th, 2020

Darla Rene Thompson, age 41, passed away in an accidental house fire, June 10, 2020 in Concrete, Washington.  She was born May 17, 1979 to Derril and Sharon (McGee) Schoel in Mount Vernon, Washington.

Darla was always happy, but she was the happiest when she was being a mother and grandmother.  She loved to dance.  She has been known to be seen dancing in a dinosaur or unicorn costume.  She was kind of crazy like that.

Darla is survived by her daughters, Allyssa, Danielle, Jennifer, Becky and Brianna; mother, Sharon Schoel; sisters, Valerie, Vickie, Valencia, Ila and Jennifer; brothers, John and William; numerous grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins.   She was preceded in death by her father and daughter, Kayla.

A gathering will be held at some time in the future.

    My dear friend, my heart aches with the news of your passing. I still see you milling about on the blacktop of the elementary school our girls attended together. We shared not only stories of motherhood but first names as well. You were loved by every single student, me and by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You brought so much joy and sunshine to those who had the pleasure of knowing you. I can’t imagine a time when you will not be missed.

    my heart aches. I will forever love and miss this ray of sunshine. my last memory of her, we were in the road dancing and laughing. we then were on opposite sides, yelling at each other about how beautiful we thought the other was. man that woman was beautiful inside and out even on the ugliest days. youre spirit, auntie Darla, will forever live on in my world. I appreciate you. thank you for being in my life. thank you for being so goofy and positive/uplifted 25/8. til we meet again. ~Mindie Lyn Sloan

    When God bends to pick a flower, He picks a rose not a weed. Darla was the most beautiful flower of all. Always leaning towards the sun. Such a profound loss.

    Rest in peace beautiful girl. It was a dang pleasure to have shared some fun times with you. We’ll catch you again, on the other side, somewhere down the road. Excuse me if I take my time… 🙂
