A life remembered
Looking back over the 90 years of her life, Velma Fulton Thompson reflects on the events which shaped her, from big to small… from the too-early death of her father from pneumonia, to how much she’d have given during the metal shortages of World War II for a tin plate (for the small son who liked to throw his dishes off the high chair tray). The incidents of her life form a patchwork of light and dark, of humor and sadness, much like the quilts which she made for friends and family.
Velma Fulton Thompson was born in Audubon County, Iowa, in 1920. Raised on a farm, she married Virgil Thompson in 1940 and the two farmed in Audubon and Guthrie Counties for more than 30 years. They raised three children.
