PRINCETON — Jean Thompson, 93, of Princeton, passed away Saturday, Aug. 8, 2020, at River Oaks Health Campus in Princeton.

She was born Sept. 2, 1926, near Hawesville, Kentucky to Sherman and Marie (Crooks) Vanconia, and had resided in Princeton for the past 75 years. She retired after working 32 years at the former Potter & Brumfield Mfg. Co. in Princeton and was proud of the fact that some of the relays she had adjusted while there are still sitting on the moon today. She was a member of Psi Iota Xi Sorority, enjoyed gardening and she enjoyed playing bridge, playing in bridge clubs up until her illness.

Jean is survived by her son, Mike Kimbrough of Princeton; three grandsons; three great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.

At this time, there will be no visitation or service. A celebration of her life will be announced at a later date.

You may leave a message of sympathy or light a candle in memory of Jean at Colvin Funeral Home is honored to serve Jean’s family.
