Ellen J. Thomson

Cameron, Missouri- Ellen J. Thomson, 100, Cameron, passed away on April 20, 2019 at her home in Cameron, Missouri.
Ellen was born in Nettleton, Missouri on December 18, 1918 to Ruth (Henderson) and Shelby Wright. She was the second of four children.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Viola Cox; brothers, William Wright and Dean Wright; nephews, Jim Cox, Phil Cox, Wayne Hillman and Gary Thomas.
Ellen graduated from Hamilton High School in 1936. After graduation, she worked in restaurants in Hamilton. Her next job took her to Cameron. She worked at the Motor Radio Laboratories where crystal holders were made for military radios.
After the end of World War II, Ellen attended the Aladdin School of Cosmetology in Kansas City, Missouri. She had her own beauty salon (Kut & Kurl) in Cameron for 20 years.
After Ellen closed the beauty salon, she worked as a receptionist at the Cameron Hospital. That job led her to work in the office of Dr. E. Richard Schmidt for many years.
On February 21, 1950, Ellen married Harry G. Thomson. They were married until Harry passed away in March of 1989.
In 2004, Ellen sold her house and moved to an independent living apartment in The Village. She continued to live independently until the day she passed on.
She was a remarkable woman! We all admire her long, healthy life and independent spirit. She will be missed.
She is survived by her nieces, Brenda (Rick) Cowart, Kathleen (Bill) Murphy, Judy Thomas, Pam Hillman, Judy Cox and Margie Cox; numerous great-nieces and nephews.

My grandma Ellen Sailsbury was best friends with Ellen in the Village until she moved. While she lived there my grandaughter was born and Ellen took to her like a grandma. Shaley always wanted to go see Ellen and play. I told her I thought she was a classy lady and admired her. I will miss her dearly and my 3 year old grandaugter will miss her even more, they were best friends. RIP Ellen we love you. I am sorry I missed the services. I saw her about a week before she passed and I didn't know she had passed.
