Lorraine K. Thompson, 85, of Nampa, died at her home on Monday, Sept. 28, 2009. Graveside services will be held today, Tuesday, Sept. 29, at the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery, Boise, at 1 p.m. Lorraine was born on Nov. 9, 1923, at her family home in Tolstoy, S.D. She attended schools in South Dakota before her family moved to Nampa. During WWII she worked in the Shipyards in Vancouver, Wash., as a welder. Following that she moved to a small town on the Montana/Idaho border and then finally moved to Boise. It was here that she met William Thompson at Lloyd's restaurant. After being convinced by her father that William was a good man, they later married on Oct. 3, 1948, at Winnemucca, Nev. The two traveled to together living mainly in Sioux Falls, S.D., because of Bill's car racing career. While in South Dakota she worked for Hyde Jewelers and was also known to be quite the seamstress and knitter. In 1968 Lorraine and Bill moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, following Bill's retirement from the trucking industry as a vice president. They would eventually move to Nampa in June of 2000 to be close to family. Lorraine loved to play cards, especially, Trash, Bingo, and Pinochle with her friends. She was a faithful member of the Baha'i faith, serving as a member of the local spiritual assembly in Boise; Marin Co., Calif.; Sioux Falls, S.D.; Granger, Utah; and Nampa.
Trash is a fun and simple game for children and adults alike. It's especially handy to know for long car trips, after school programs, and summer camps. Here is how to play the game.
