Fidelia (Dee) Thompson passed away Friday, September 4, 2020, at the age of 84. She was born in Alberta, Canada, on September 23, 1935, where she lived before moving to Los Angeles in 1964. She resided in Redondo Beach for 46-years and was active at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and in the community as a volunteer. She traveled the world, created beautiful things, and cooked delicious meals. She loved sewing, baking, weaving, reading, playing with babies and spoiling grandchildren. She was quick and clever and often laughing. She had a smile and a welcome for everyone. She was a surrogate grandmother to so many, she eventually became known simply as Gramma Dee.

She is survived by her children Greg, Russell (Ramona), Glen (Janine), John (Renee) and Elise (Bob Lee), grandkids Oliver, Justin and James, plus many informally adopted kids and grandkids, including Eamonn Roche and family (Elisa, Sean and Cristina). She was predeceased by her husband, William (Barry) Thompson. The service will be private, but it will be live streamed on September 23 at 10:00 am Pacific Time. The link is

  2. candle 7I’m so sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you. You were blessed to have such an amazing woman in your life.

  3. candle 4We lost a very dear friend, mother, grandmother and sage. “Mrs. T.” to me; she always demonstrated her amazing wit, sense of humor, kindness and intelligence. She loved her family and friends and always had something for me to eat or drink.
    I enjoyed our conversations about her growing up on the farm, the hard work and the cold winters. I am glad I had the opportunity to learn these things.
    She is gone too soon.
