Obituary for Elinor Mae Thomson (Ufer)

Elinor Ufer Thomson, 90, of Montross, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 6, 2018. Mrs. Thomson was born in Madison, South Dakota on February 7, 1927 to Herman and Neva Bunday Ufer. Her family moved to Passaic, NJ in 1942, next door to Alexander Thomson. She graduated from Passaic High School in 1944.
In June 1949, she married Al, after he graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy…and then the adventure began. Over the next 30 years, they moved 14 times, during which time Elinor supported Al’s Naval career, which included three ship commands and three years at the American Embassy in Lisbon, Portugal, while raising two children, Alan and Linda.
She was active in the Navy Wives Clubs, mentor to wardroom wives and an advocate for the life of a Navy wife. She became an accomplished hostess, and loved to entertain guests from family gatherings to formal Navy diplomatic functions.
Wherever the Navy sent them, she made the house their home and ran all the household chores when Al was gone to sea.
She loved to play the electronic organ, primarily for her own enjoyment. While not necessarily a sun worshipper, she always enjoyed a day at the beach and ocean.
When she moved to the Northern Neck in 1989, she had time to continue with all of her varied interests and then some. She established and led the water exercise group at the GH/CP clubhouse. She danced with the Rappahannock Waves Square Dance group, where she and Al served as President. She also served a term as president of the Westmoreland Garden Club. She was a member of the Red Hatters, the Bushfield Golf Club, the Northern Neck Music Club and both the GH/CP Bridge Club and Bird Club.
She is survived by her husband of 68 years, CAPT Alexander D. Thomson, USN (Ret.), one son, CAPT Alan Douglas Thomson, USN (Ret.) and his wife Judy Hall of Manassas, VA, one daughter, Linda Susan Thomson of Alexandria, VA, two grand children Aaron Daniel Thomson of Chantilly, VA and Gregory Alan Thomson and his wife Allison Mathis of Rockville, MD.
Mrs. Thomson was preceded in death by a brother, Verne G. Simpson.
Funeral services will be held 12:00 noon on Monday, January 15, 2018 at the Welch Funeral Home, Montross. The family will receive friends 2 hours prior to services at the funeral home. Interment will follow at a later date in Arlington National Cemetery
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Fountain Fund in memory of Elinor Thomson c/o The Orchard, Business Office, 20 Delfae Drive, Warsaw, VA 22572. (Checks payable to “The Orchard”)
