Karin Dawn Thompson was born December 12, 1961, in Baker, Oregon, to Donald and Carol Thompson, and joined siblings Kristin and Erik. She passed away in Pendleton on July 20, 2020, at age 58. When Karin was nearly three, the family moved from Halfway, Oregon, to Spokane, WA, where she attended Spokane public schools through her junior year at Shadle Park High School. Her one deviation from this was her attendance as a first grader at Chanute Air Force Base, Illinois, where Dad was also attending classes. In 1979, the family, now with the addition of little sisters Julie and Sonia, again relocated, moving to Milton-Freewater, where Karin graduated from McLoughlin High School with the Class of 1980. Karin held various jobs in the area, one of the most memorable being her time with Nelson Irrigation Company. Later employment was principally as a caregiver. Milton-Freewater was her home all of her adult life. Her sense of humor and ready laugh are much missed. Karin is survived by her parents, Don and Carol Thompson, Pendleton; sisters Kristin Thompson, Boise; Julie Maher (Joe Hull), Pendleton; Sonia (Mark) Eggert, Bend; brother, Erik (Lilinda) Thompson, Meridian, ID; long-time friend and companion Russell Kinsfather, Milton-Freewater; nine nieces and nephews, and several grand-nieces and nephews, as well as a number of aunts, uncles and cousins. A memorial gathering will be planned for a later date.

She will be terribly missed. I enjoyed begin around her when we were in High School. I still have her graduation photo and I will treasure it forever. I will miss her very much. I wish I could be there for you, but just a little done on my luck right now. Much love to you all.
